Hurricane Irene hit New Jersey ten miles north of Atlantic City at 5:30 am EDT, as a minimum-strength Category 1 hurricane with 75 mph winds. Irene is only the second hurricane since 1851 to hit New Jersey. At 9 am EDT, Irene made a third U.S. landfall over Long Island, NY, and New York City, as a tropical storm with 65 mph winds. Top wind gusts measured in New York City were 60 mph at Central Park at 3:58 am; 67 mph at La Guardia at 4:10 am; and 59 mph at JFK Airport at 1:33 am. A 91 mph gust was recorded in Sayville, NY on the Central Long Island coast, at 7:02 am. Emergency managers reported that the nearby town of Lindenhurst (population 28,000), on the south side of Long Island, was mostly under water due to a storm surge. The storm surge at The Battery on the southern shore of Manhattan reached 4.0 feet, overtopping the sea wall in several locations. Fresh water run-off from Irene's torrential rains, riding on top of a 3 to 4-foot storm surge, allowed the swollen East and Hudson Rivers to overflow at the edges of Manhattan. Irene's rains have now ended in New York City, after accumulating to 7.60" at Central Park. This brings total rainfall for the month of August in New York City to 19.68", making it the wettest month in the city since record keeping began in 1869. The previous record was 16.85", set in September 1882. Philadelphia, PA and Newark, NJ have also set all-time wettest month records, thanks to Irene's rains. The 19.40" of rain that has fallen in Philadelphia this August is probably the most rain any major city in the Northeast, U.S. has received since 22.43" fell in Newark, NJ in August 1843, according to wunderground's weather historian, Christopher C. Burt.

The green line is the storm surge, which is the difference between the observed water level (red line) and what the water level should have been without the hurricane (blue line). At 4:45 am, the storm surge peaked at 4.0 feet. The surge declined to about 3 feet during the high tide cycle, then rose again to near 3.9 feet as the tide started going out.

Irene's rains bringing significant river flooding
Irene brought more than eight inches of rain to a long stretch of the Atlantic coast from North Carolina to New York. NOAA's Significant River Flood Outlook is showing that significant river flooding is already occurring along coastal regions of North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and New Jersey, and is expected to spread to Eastern Pennsylvania, eastern New York, Western Massachusetts, and most of Vermont and New Hampshire.

The 1903 Vagabond Hurricane
The only other hurricane to hit New Jersey since 1851 was the 1903 Category 1 Vagabond Hurricane. According to Wikipedia, the Vagabond Hurricane caused heavy damage along the New Jersey coast ($180 million in 2006 dollars.) The hurricane killed 57 people, and endangered the life of President Theodore Roosevelt, who was sailing on a yacht near Long Island, NY, when the hurricane hit. New Jersey only rarely gets hit by hurricanes because it lies in an portion of the coast that doesn't stick out much and is too far north.

Tropical Storm Jose forms
Tropical Storm Jose formed this morning in surprise fashion, managing to maintain enough heavy thunderstorms in the face of very high wind shear of 40 - 55 knots to become the season's tenth named storm. Jose does not have long to live, due to the strong upper-level winds from Hurricane Irene that are creating the shear. Jose will likely bring strong winds near tropical storm force later today when it passes just west of Bermuda. Satellite loops show that there is very little heavy thunderstorm activity associated with Jose, and Bermuda will see much less rain than is usual for a tropical storm passing so close.

Elsewhere in the tropics: Invest 92L forms
A strong tropical wave located off the coast of Africa, about 200 miles south of the Cape Verde Islands, is moving west at 10 mph, and has been designated Invest 92L by NHC this morning. This system has a large amount of heavy thunderstorm activity and moderate amount of spin, and appears likely to develop into a tropical storm later this week, as all of the computer models are developing it. NHC is giving 92L a 40% chance of developing into a tropical depression by Tuesday. This storm will be moving more slowly across the Atlantic than Irene did, and will take at least 6 days to reach the Lesser Antilles Islands. Forecast tracks from the long-range GFS and ECMWF models suggest that Bermuda might be the only land area threatened by 92L, but it is too early to be confident of this.

Hottest day in Houston's history
The mercury hit 109°F (42.8°C) yesterday at Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport, tying September 4, 2000 as the hottest day in the city's history. Yesterday was the also the hottest August day on record in Houston, besting the 108°F reading of August 18, 1909. This year, Houston has set its record for all-time hottest temperature, most 100° days in a year (36, old record was 32, and 4 is normal), and most consecutive 100° days (24, old record was 14.) Weather records in Houston go back to 1889. Houston needs 20.18" of rain to get to normal levels of rainfall for the year. Today's high is predicted to be 107°F in Houston, so yesterday's record may be in danger of being broken today. By the end of the week, Houston is expected to cool down below 100°, and a weather pattern conducive for bringing summer rains will move in.

I'll have a new post Monday morning.

After the initial landfall in NC, I think Irene was a tropical storm all along with usually low pressure. The pressure may have been a factor why they kept it a hurricane so long or it could be that it was a hurricane but the sustained hurricane force winds stayed well east offshore. In the end most of the obs were 40-60mph with a few gusts in between over 75mph. Interesting to hear the post seasons analyst. but the historic nature is been overblown, historic are the pressures with this tropical storm and the emergency response.

Is there a reason for them using the 90s for Invests? I've always wondered why not 0-9 or 30-39, but everyone I've asked has only shrugged and said they didn't know.

Well, if they were numbered low--say, 0-9, or 10-19, or whatever--they could be easily confused with TDs that use those numbers. And since a high number would be best, I suppose somewhere along the line someone figured that they should simply use 90-99 to avoid any possible confusion ever. That is, they could have used 40-49, or 70-79...but why not go all the way?

Looks folks, the way i see it is...A very large and powerful storm was predicted by the models to run up the east coast. ... that kept her weaker than the FORECASTED strength. we got lucky. we should be happy! ... Just be glad many of us dodged a bullet, because some, such as those in north carolina, recieved tremendously serious flooding.


Not luck, prayer. I think that was requested before the storm hit. My wife was concerned about my son who was right in it's path. That gets you on your knees.

I am disapppointed with this blog entry and with the news coverage of Irene's landfall in New York in general. After all the advance information on what could happen I expected some details on what actually did happen. TV coverage is almost entirely talking heads making general comments with little actual footage or specific information on what happened where. I saw a little bit of people wading through water somewhere in New York. They didn't say where. Some waves splashing over the sea wall in R.I after the storm has passed. I live on the west coast - turned on the TV at 9 - is it already old news, they can't show or talk about what happened at the Battery? Is there any video of the Battery or lower Manhattan at landfall? Did any water get into the subway or the trains/tunnels under the rivers? Exactly where are there power outages? Exactly where in the metro area was there flooding? I used to live there and know a lot of people there, including my son. I want some information. TV is a visual medium, but you might as well listen to the radio, with as little visuals as they give. It's frustrating.

There is also very little on the internet. With a lot of digging I found a Con Ed map of power outages in the NYC metro area. I found out that most of Lindenhurst, a south shore suburb of 28,000 people, is under water. A fair number of comments that there was too much hype, that the preparation and precautions were excessive. This is just dumb. If the storm surge had been a little bit higher or the eye had tracked a little further west and all these preparations had not been made, there would have been a loud complaints that nothing had been done. Twitter - forget about it. Dumb and Dumber.

Jeff, I figure you're just tired and will do a more detailed blog with some juicy links and videos later. Thanks for all your work. The TV news is another story - I expect to be disappointed with them.

Hurricane Irene has also made history in being the first Hurricane to make landfall in the USA since Ike in 2008. Ida in 2009, technically did not make landfall as a Hurricane.

Irene is also the first Hurricane to hit the Northeast since Hurricane Bob in 1991.

Irene will be known for her massive surge and flooding and there was a good couple of wind damage reported. Hurricane Force winds from North Carolina to New York, which is pretty intense. Pressure of a Category 3 storm = very Intense and large storm. This was the Northeast USAs version of Hurricane Ike.


I'm gonna say this was the NE's version of Gustav. Not as bad as people thought it would be, but still a bad storm and probably warrants retirement.

I haven't seen any aftermath photos that are in the same league as some of Ike's yet. Maybe I just missed them or they aren't available yet. Not saying Irene wasn't bad though.

*Note: before someone flames me, just because I said it wasn't as bad as people thought it would be, doesn't mean I'm downplaying the storm.. just telling the truth. People did think it would be worse.

68 AWeatherLover "Does anyone know the numbers for cape verde season? As in, what is the average number of cape verde type storms to form every season?"

It's a matter of definition.
Officially, a CapeVerdeHurricane arises from a TropicalWave that rolled off of Africa to become a TropicalCyclone before it reached ~34degreesW.

Around here, "a Cape Verde storm" is commonly misused to describe a hurricane that began as a TropicalWave that rolled off of Africa and became a TropicalCyclone before ~61degreesW, then followed a path that passed north of the DominicanRepublic.

they use the highest set of numbers so that you NEVER have to worry about the storm count to reach that high .. when an invest is renumbered to a storm it is given the number of the TD... like 01.Alex was last year or like 09.Irene this year. 80s are used for testing and 90s are used for invests so we could have 79 storms and never worry about overlapping

My sister in S.E. Virginia had a dinner party and went to bed. She had no power loss and woke up to no damage.
She was under a hurricane warning and in her words it was a "non-event" for her.She actually had more intense weather earlier in the week from T storms.

A couple days ago when I spoke to her on the phone she was expect 100+mph winds and "catastrophic damage." She will probably never trust hurricane forecasters again.
