    It's not the storm systems that's preventing them from moving out into open water. It's actually a very strong "Bermuda high" until that moves off hurricanes will continue to ride the east coast or go into the gulf. Think of high pressure as atmospheric mountains. Low pressure systems don't climb those mountains they find the valleys in between them. You can see what I'm talking about if you look closely at that video you posted.

    My fears may seem correct. Looks like Maria is posed to strike NYC or somewhere around it. The Pacific shortwave seems to come in later allowing it to crash into the east coast rather than push her out to sea. This could change and it probably will but right now it's not looking good. Anybody from NJ to New England should watch this closely.

    Do you think the 9/23 event could be a hurricane hitting NY?

    No. Not unless Maria starts speeding up. And I mean REALLY speeding up. In short. No. Not going to happen.

    The entire country island of Puerto Rico is without power thanks to Maria...

    Hold on to your butts. Latest mods are coming in WEST. This is the new spread from all mods. NYC watch out. Category 1 or tropical storm, this will crush NYC like a category 4 on Florida. NYC is not built for hurricanes.

    There's been less damage than feared to the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico.

    This shows how much power is back on or being used in Puerto Rico compared to pre-Maria...
