Here's a plot found over at Weather Underground's current discussion of Hurricane Ophelia (more on that in a minute):
If you have to squint, click to embiggen. The original image is pretty large.
Ophelia is the one shown in red off the coast of Africa, but that's not what this post is about. Look a the dark blue stripes that indicate repeatedly overlaid storm tracks, and where they tend to hit the U.S. mainland. Mobile AL to Grand Isle LA are one of the major beam dumps here. Apalachicola is on the eastern edge of this, but out of the main blast. There's even a little clearing up around St. Marks. (No, for you Southern Reach fans, it's not Area X.) It's kind of nice to see this large-scale pattern plotted out with historical data.
Back to Hurricane Ophelia, it's going in on Ireland sometime in the next day or so. That's pretty weird and I'm not sure what to say about it. "Erin go board up." ...?
