    Re: Will There Be A Hurricane Party Next Week?

    Latest update: according to NOAA, the northernly move has started. Ian is still traveling WNW but with a more northerly shift.

    The barometric pressure is still high, 1001mb. It doesn't seem to be gaining in intensity yet, but apparently there are deep hot water in the northerly path which is supposed to have it intensify quickly. NOAA has it going from its current tropical storm to a Cat 3 overnight on Monday to Tuesday (42 hours from now). That is before it reaches Cuba.

    It has been raining in Kingston, the eastern side of the island for that matter and there has been some power outages but nothing serious. In Negril it is oddly calm, no wind, no rain and a comfortable 28c or 82f.

    More updates once the northern movement is confirmed.

    All in all this is turning out to be a comfortable day! Temperature is a comfortable 28/82 - slight breeze and cloud cover. No rain.

    Ian has been moving northwesterly now for the last 4 NOAA updates (3 hours apart) and that is the first time that it has done that. The north move has started. But it also keeps moving west away from Jamaica, so we are not even in the potential tropical wind cone. NOAA has a whole bunch of different cones.

    Other than what occurred on the eastern part of the island yesterday, Jamaica has been spared the wrath of Ian.

    We are still going to get some moderately heavy rains this afternoon and probably well into the evening. But that can happen any given day in the tropics! And speaking of rain - it literally just started after being clear since this morning.

    The eastern side of the island may be getting more rain than here - so we will be checking on flooding and landslides that tend to accompany heavy or extended rains.

    Stay tuned!

    The Meteorological Service has issued a flash flood warning for flood-prone areas of several parishes across Jamaica. The flash flood warning is in effect for St Mary, Portland, St Thomas, Kingston, St Andrew, St Catherine, and Clarendon. This means that flooding has been reported or will occur shortly.

    We had wind bands from Hurricane Ian all last night but very little if any rain.

    At 5am, we did get a few minutes of rain which seemed to mark Ian's closest approach to Jamaica (being Negril). At that moment, Ian and Jamaica were on the exact same latitude. Ian's barometric pressure has dropped 983mb making it a full fledged hurricane.

    We are not out of the woods yet although Ian is moving away. Its increase from a tropical storm to hurricane has been impressive. As it heads north, it will gain in both intensity and size.

    So even though it is technically further away, we will be still in its ever-increasing outer bands. By Wednesday afternoon we will be near the bottom of the hurricane, with its easterly blowing winds. Negril, being on the western most end of the island, will probably be experiencing the worst wave impacts on the cliffs and the beach.

    This thing is not over yet...

    This morning has been a textbook case for being in the outer bands of a hurricane. Bursts of heavy rain and strong winds lasting just 10 minutes or so, followed by perfectly calm skies. About 15 minutes later the next burst hits.

    It seems that unless Ian grows at an amazing rate, all of Jamaica should be out of the outer bands later today.

    The last phase of Ian has started. As Ukranian's pictures from this morning show, the sea is just beginning to get rough. This will continue until well after the entire width/length of Ian moves north past the island.

    The 5:30pm update on Monday has Ian now a Cat 2 at 972mb and it has been increasing in size as it moves more slowly north. Jamaica will be stuck in the outer bands until at least 9pm Monday.

    It has been raining off and on all day, with a few gusts of wind to accompany the rain.

    Ian just doesn't want to leave.

    Looking at the Rock's and Coco La Palm (frozen at the moment) web cams. Seems that the sea is still choppy but not as rough as it was yesterday.
