Disaster Movie 'Into the Storm' is a Disaster

From the beginning of tornado disaster movie, "Into the Storm", we are treated to the most magnificent special effects that Hollywood can create. In the eighteen years since the infamous "Twister" of 1996, computer graphics technology has progressed remarkably. The spinning fire tornado and jetliners hurtling through the air in "Into the Storm" make the flying cows and clumsily rendered tornadoes of Twister seem quaint. Unfortunately, as is the case in nearly all disaster movies, the plot, dialogue, and acting of "Into the Storm" are a disaster. The movie opens humorously, with a scene featuring two low-wisdom yahoo storm chasers who look like they came straight out of "Jackass". They put on the most believable acting job of anyone in the movie, but unfortunately, are only minor characters. The rest of the movie features main characters whose acting ranges from mediocre to bad. Not only is the acting bad, but none of the characters are sympathetic, and there is very little character development. As a result, we have no one to root for. The characters range from bland (meteorologist Allison) to annoying (Vice Principal Gary, whose school gets devastated by a tornado) to drab (his son Donnie, who gets trapped in rubble with his wanna-be-girlfriend Kaitlyn), to downright obnoxious (storm chaser Pete.) The scene of Donnie and Caitlin trapped in tornado rubble and recording their final words on their cell phones for posterity is quite possibly the most melodramatic and painful disaster movie scene in cinema history. I had to shut my eyes and think about how good "Sharknado" was by comparison to shut out the interminably long debacle of dialogue and acting.

Meteorologically, "Into the Storm" had less to complain about than other major weather disasters movies like "Twister", "The Day After Tomorrow", and "Sharknado". The tornadoes were believably rendered in most cases, and the damage they did was fairly realistically portrayed. Still, there were a lot of problems with the movie's meteorology. The winds of the tornadoes were able to hurl impressively heavy vehicles incredibly long distances, yet not blow the characters around much. A string of five separate tornadoes (not a multi-vortex tornado) were able to spin in very close proximity, something not observed in nature. In one scene, we are treated to the view up the inside of a tornado, which is remarkably symmetrical and light at the top. It would certainly be very dark at the top inside a tornado, and not so perfectly symmetrical.

The main characters of the movie were its tornadoes, and they certainly put on an impressive performance that was thrilling at times. But great special effects can't make up for awful plot, dialogue, and acting, and I give "Into the Storm" one and-a-half stars out of four. Aggregate critic ratings of the five major weather disaster movies of the past twenty years from the movie ratings site, Rottentomatoes.com, agree that "Into the Storm" was the worst one of the lot, with only 20% of critics liking the movie. The percentage of critics liking these movies:

82%: Sharknado
58%: Twister
54%: Sharknado 2
45%: The Day After Tomorrow
20%: Into the Storm

Video 1. Official trailer for "Into the Storm." The most impressive special effects are shown here, so save yourself $10 and the painful melodrama of the movie and just watch the trailer.

Quiet in the tropics
A tropical wave located in the middle Atlantic, midway between the Lesser Antilles Islands and the coast of Africa, is headed westwards at about 10 mph. Satellite loops show the wave has a broad, elongated surface circulation, but heavy thunderstorm activity is almost entirely lacking due to high wind shear of 20 knots and dry air. Water vapor satellite images and the Saharan Air Layer analysis show that the wave is surrounded by a very dry airmass. Sea Surface Temperatures (SSTs) are marginal for development, about 26°C, but will be warmer late in the week as the wave approaches the Lesser Antilles Islands. The Sunday morning runs of two of our three reliable models for predicting tropical cyclone genesis, the European and UKMET models, did show some weak development of the wave by late in the week. The models differed wildly in the forward speed of the disturbance, with the UKMET model predicting the wave would pass a few hundred miles northeast of the Lesser Antilles on Thursday night, and the European model predicting that this would not occur until Sunday night. Given the rather divergent opinions of the models and the presence of so much dry air, the risk of development this week is low. In their 8 am EDT Sunday Tropical Weather Outlook, NHC gave the disturbance 2-day and 5-day development odds of 10% and 20%, respectively.

I'll have a new post by Monday afternoon at the latest.

Unfortunately, the CHS website has collapsed as everyone is trying to find out if their local hospital is part of the CHS chain. The cached copy on Google doesn't work for locations either. Most of their hospitals and clinics are located in small towns and rural areas but some locations like PA and FL have hospitals in large cities. I have not been able to find a source for location information except bits and pieces anywhere outside their non-functioning web site.
thanks sar..ive been trying to find out which local hospitals are part of it and no luck here either..maybe tomorrow or later in the week.

To follow up on something mentioned yesterday here (as it could have an effect in future Northern Hemisphere tropical cyclones):

Quoting 71. ILwthrfan:
How thick is the ice sheet on the summit of the Volcano?


About 700m, or about 2300 ft, or a bit under half a mile. (It's Europe's largest glacier, if that helps.)

It's notable, perhaps, that today the Icelandic government raised the volcano's status to orange, the second highest on that nation's volcano advisory scale. Here's the statement:

"The intense seismic activity that started on 16 of August at Bardarbunga persists. Very strong indications of ongoing magma movement, in connection with dyke intrusion, is corroborated by GPS measurements. There are currently two swarms: one to the E of Bardarbunga caldera and one at the edge of Dyngjujokull just E of Kistufell. At 2.37 am on the 18th a strong earthquake (M4) was located in the Kistufell swarm.

"This is the strongest earthquake measured in the region since 1996. As evidence of magma movement shallower than 10 km implies increased potential of a volcanic eruption, the Bárðarbunga aviation color code has been changed to orange. Presently there are no signs of eruption, but it cannot be excluded that the current activity will result in an explosive subglacial eruption, leading to an outburst flood (jökulhlaup) and ash emission. The situation is monitored closely."

Lorcan Roche Kelly at Agenda Research suggested the following scenarios:

    There is a chance there will be no eruption.

    It could be too small to matter. There was an eruption in the area in 1996 that did not break through the ice. While this eruption did lead to a destructive jökulhlaup a rapid flood of melted water from the glacier damage was restricted to areas the flood hit. There was no ash cloud.

    It could break though the ice, cause a small ash cloud, but lead to minimal disruption to air traffic. The 2011 eruption of Grimsvotn, also under Vatnajokull, had these characteristics. That eruption only lead to the cancellation of 900 flights and some re-routing on north Atlantic routes.

    It could be a repeat of Eyjafjallajokull. If the volcano erupts, breaks through the ice-cap and produces large volumes of ash, we will likely see major air travel disruption during what is still peak holiday season.

    There is a very small chance that an eruption could be something very much larger, along the scale of the 1783 Laki eruption. In the case of an eruption this size, the major problem would not be flight disruption caused by ash, although that certainly would happen but rather the devastating impact on climate and farming across the northern hemisphere. To give an idea of the scale, some research points to the Laki eruption being a trigger for the French Revolution.

The 2014 Atlantic season is now slower in producing the third tropical storm than back to 2000 when it took till August 18th at 1100 am to produce Chris. And there is no storm emminent.

Quoting 658. TimSoCal:

Both the GFS and CMC are sending a surge of EPac moisture into SoCal over the next 2 weeks, although the timing is very different. I'll take it.





I wouldn't buy it until there is consistency for a while. Many here are complaining about how bad the drought is in California, which is true, but people also need to be aware how normal it is to be extremely dry throughout the whole summer. Getting heavy rain in Southern CA in the summer is like frozen precip in FL, it happens, but it isn't normal or common. We shouldn't be surprised that CA isn't getting any drought relief this time of year, because well, its already a dry climate, and there is a long stretch this time of year, where any rain at all is unusual, much less heavy rain for drought relief.

Of course, I'm not saying it can't happen, sure it could. Weather certainly does not always obey climatology. I'm just saying that it seems an awful lot of bloggers act as if CA should be getting drought relief right now, as if its surprising how dry its been lately. Its normal to be this dry this time of year. If its still this dry in the winter, then it will really be scary. Its just that they already had severe drought going into this normally dry period.

0.01 chance. :) Yeah just a weak open wave at this point, final death stroke should be it's travel over northern Cuba. Clearly still weakening in satellite pic. AOI that's at 30% for five day really doesn't look all that promising either.
It's crashing into the mountains of Cuba now. Never has so much been expected of so little. The whole "wave train" off Africa is looking pretty sick. It's looks like the current AOI will be #2 to join the world of the living dead without even making it to invest stage. Pretty sad for the back end of August.

Ok first off I decided to try WU on my smartphone its ok don't like it too much

Ok second thing the area in the E and central atlantic is a monsoon trof you can have many lows developing and dissipating along it so I'm not surprised that NHC sfc charts are showing lows dissipating and developing now because of this NHC says development of one of the lows is expected BUT NOT within the next 48HRS

Ok third and last thing the former Invest 94L is currently passing over us with a few strong T-Storms and showers with generally light to moderate wind with a few strong gusts in and around showers now I know that there is always a chance for it to develop it has thunderstorms but the way it currently looks I have to say prob. Of it forming is less than 5% within the next 3 days now if it can redevelop convection and stronger winds with a circulation within the NW Carib and GOM I'd up the chances to 50% and it becomes an invest now beyond that is predicting with your head in the sand well because well we are trying to develop something from a little thunderstorm

Above-average sea surface temperatures focusing upward motion in that portion of the world. Shear has actually been anomalously high in the East Pacific the past few months.

Prepare yourself for blobapalooza. This season will continue to drag on at this pace. We may get 2 or 3 hurricanes, but they will likely be poorly organized and most will question their categorization. The most excitement we might get this year is a homegrown TS that gives some of us a nice downpour.

It is, what it is...

Quoting 657. sar2401:

No storms + infallible crystal balls = cranky blog


No storms means I occupy my time with the many other things that demand it (and there is of coursenever
enough to get everything done)

I'm happy to see a slow or dead year in the Atlantic Basin.. one (or several) less things I have to
worry about in August, September and October.

Snow doesn't scare me. That's easy to be prepared for and it won't destroy my house.
