Will Sandy Curve Back Into US?

If it does, it's the first time since regular observation started, but that's what the models keep saying.  The threat of a major disruption is serious enough that we've cut our New York stay short and will be leaving several days early.  This blog will not be active until all these sudden arrangements are complete sometime late this weekend.

14325 kHz, the Hurricane Watch Net, has activated for Sandy in the Caribbean.

Many air reconnaissance flights are being scheduled by NOAA and the USAF Reserve "Hurricane Hunters."

Links remain the same:

Today (scheduled yesterday)
Tomorrow (scheduled today)

While HF is no longer primary, people continue to hear these aircraft on HFGCS or USAF MARS frequencies from time to time.

Irene II?

First, let's say that the reason this blog has had no activity is that I have been in New York City for quite some time, and time at the computer has been limited.

Currently, there is considerable speculation over which day I will be able to go back to L.A., given the current weather forecasts for a historic event.  This blog may turn out to be live from Storm Central -- long as the power holds up -- given the continued results of the European weather model.

Far as Sandy goes, yes, there are many aircraft up.
