#Google #DeepMind’s #weather #AI can #forecast #extremeweather faster and more accurately
#GraphCast predicts weather conditions up to 10 days in advance, more accurately and much faster than the current gold standard. GraphCast outperformed the model from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (#ECMWF) in more than 90% of over 1,300 test areas. It said #HurricaneLee would make landfall in Nova Scotia three days sooner than traditional #forecasting

Normally, this is a fairly open sandy beach. After storms, the sand is covered in seaweed that sometimes smells. But, locals walk it twice daily, fishermen stand well out there, up to their hip waders, and fish. (not a good fishing day today)

#Moosehead #Halifax #NS

We've been out here fishing in our plastic boat too. Also not today. I haven't been by since, to see if there's still sand on the beach.

I don't know if I'll leave these videos online forever, they use up server space. I might YT them some day.

A tiny cove down the road (Smith's Cove, behind Boson Island), has a tiny sand bar that blocks any waves that might get past the outer islands. (44°57'17.2"N 62°13'02.3"W)
It's like a children's beach, splash pads or pools, depending on the tide.
Sometimes, in favorable weather, you can get Cellular signals in this spot.

LISTEN! Surge sucks out rocks

#HurricaneLee #Waves #StormSurge

Tiny inlets, in a sheltered cove, separated by a sandbar/rock ledge. Each is normally a wading pool suitable for children, but now, the long rolling surge created by hurricane Lee, is pushing waves into the harbour, then into the cove, then into the inlet, to fill it completely, and drag back shore rocks with the riptide that surges create. Even in less than knee-deep water on the shore, you would be sucked off your feet into the ocean. .Lots of power in each wave.

"Lee Making Waves"
#GoodMorning #Bonjour

Took some photos during #HurricaneLee but had 48 hrs without power, and 72 more without internet or phone.

The beginning of the hurricane was like a strong tropical breeze. Sunny, nice walking (away from trees), but after it passed, the tailspin brought down wires, trees, and stirred the ocean in the other direction.

I've fished here in an 8 foot plastic boat. This is a sheltered cove. If you could see past the islands, spray goes over some.

a long strong wave forms on the ocean, powered by offshore hurricane surge. The wave travels the length of the cove, crashing against rocks or shoreline as it pushes inward to the shore.

No time to answer everyone, we're on the highway to get cellular access. We're fine.

We're still plenty windy, last night was the worst as wind shifted to the already damaged side from Fiona, no sign of trees down or damage, except my tiny lighthouse toppled after the wind shifted.

"The centre of post-tropical storm Lee officially made landfall on Long Island in extreme southwestern Nova Scotia at 5:00 p.m. local time" and a reporter in Long Island and Digby reports that when it made landfall, they noticed no difference. Fishing fleet is ok, only one building lost a roof.

Not over yet, but things seem under control, as they can be with downed trees, washed out roads, power outages. No Fiona.

I hope the Peggy's Cove house survives.

Happy #Caturday everyone!

We are feeling the early effects of #Lee here now, power is out, so I'm casting my mind back to my short teaching trip to #NewZealand in 2016. It was a lovely sunny warm day so I took a short walk around the neighbourhood before the sessions.The trip was only 3 days, 6 including flights, but I loved what I saw of the country.

One of the neighbours was sunning on a hot tin roof.
Stay safe, friends.

Hearing the #stormsurge risk is greatest for SW Nova, I'm thinking of the communities near Westport and Lobster Bay, and near Port Latour - all very low lying land, with lots of saltmarshes. This is a land that looks sunken at the best of times.

@gbhnews 1. Keep your digital devices (esp communications) fully charged.

2. Know your chance of evacuation & where to go it you need to. (And double-check frequently.)

3. If not expecting to evacuate, stock up on food, but only what can be stored & prepared without electricity.

4. Consider if anyone in your family/household has special needs during & after the storm due to illness, injury, disability, etc.

5. Check on family, friends & neighbors who may need assistance.

Additional information about #SKYWARN #HWN and other #hamradio efforts around #HurricaneLee

The Hurricane Watch Net (HWN) is in Alert Level 2 - Monitoring Mode. HWN Net Manager Bobby Graves, KB5HAV, published an update on the groups website. "The National Hurricane Center is forecasting Hurricane Lee to slowly weaken over the next few days and make landfall Saturday evening in Nova Scotia, or perhaps New Brunswick Sunday morning, as a Tropical Storm or Post-Tropical Cyclone... Not knowing for sure "if" Hurricane Lee will weaken, and, not knowing for sure where landfall could occur, the Hurricane Watch Net remains at Alert Level 2 - Monitoring Mode," he wrote. The HWN tentatively plans to active Saturday morning at 8:00 am EST on 14.325 MHz and 7.268 MHz, depending on need.

The Hurricane VOiP Net is planning to activate on Saturday, according to the group's Public Information Officer, Lloyd Colston, KC5FM, "The VOIPWX.net will be activating Saturday on Echolink 7203 and IRLP 9219 for possible Hurricane Lee reports from New England and Canadian provinces...The net will also connect to the Kansas Sunflower System (www.sunflowernet.us) with connections to Allstar, Hamshack Hotline, TGIF DMR, Dstar, Fusion, M17, and P25," said Colston in an email.

Both groups funnel reports to the WX4NHC amateur radio station at the National Hurricane Center, if active.

As ARRL Field Organization leaders begin activating volunteers, radio amateurs are encouraged to prepare their stations with the ARES go kit checklist.
