I expect some massive cancellations of flights into and out of Miami from Thursday on we hope for the best but Irene is looking like a monster.AA as well as most other airlines at MIA,FLL,and PBI maybe JAX might have have to relocate aircraft elsewhere to ride out the storm.

There goes my diving trip for this weekend... :-P

Looks like its rapidly strengthening into a Cat 3/4 with expected landfall around the Carolinas. Should prove to be an interesting week/end for many...

We are watching it very closely at PBI. So far no cancellations, but I don't expect it to stay that way very long. Probably no terminators Wednesday night at the least is my guess,

I'll do my best to keep A.net updated as plans change tomorrow......more to come.

Just saw The Weather Channel crew is now reporting live from the beaches about 2 miles from PBI. Because West Palm Beach sticks out a little bit along the coastline, forcasters are predicting we will be the closest to the storm in FL, Gotta go dust off the storm shudders.

Per the last NHC Tropical Storm forecast map the whole SE coast of Florida appears to have a 50 pct or better chance of tropcial storm force winds during passage. These would come in the spiral bands surrounding the storm as it moves up the the GulfStream or maybe just east thru the Bahamas. Normally during those bands you see pretty much a halt to air service due winds and precip...winds alone stop jetways and catering trucks by the way once they get 35 to 40 sustained....and visibility for ground movement is poor during a band passage....and add in that invariably the winds come from a not usual direction (like due north) and create a large crosswind component since every major runway in SE Florida is east/west....grin. Rule..not exact...is bigger aircraft bigger crosswind can handle....but around 30-35 will shut them down also. A RSW or TPA departure or even MCO may be better.

Living in South Florida (Miami) for 20+ years I can tell you the following:

Weather Forecasters are predicting the Greater Miami Metro area (including FLL) will fair well. 8% chance of having Hurricane Force winds and about a 50% chance of seeing some tropical storm winds with the outer bands. Keeping in mind that is with the outer bands and not sustained for hours on end.

Hurricanes like Irene have what is called a "Dirty Side" the dirty side to these type of storms is always on the eastern and northeastern quadrant. That said if it stays true to this track, MIA and FLL should fair well for the most part.

I would not expect massive cancellations for days on end. As stated, airlines can take off and land with winds that are reaching almost tropical storm level so it gives them some room to get flights out. Just check with your airlines, they are accustomed to handling these type of situations down here. I am sure we will see some delays and cancellations as precautions. Our versions of Nor'easters  

I say the airports to watch closely now are SAV,CHS,ILM,RDU,ORF and obviously NAS and FPO. I expect major delays and cancellations there.

Stay safe everyone!

Most tracks are putting it up to a Cat 4 east of Florida, immediately over the northern extremes of The Bahamas. The Bahamas will get the brunt of this storm, more than Florida, before it drops back to a Cat 3 and hits the Carolinas. Most of the projected paths and data I have been following agree to this.

It looks like if any part of Florida gets hit, it'll be the central coast, not the southern coast. Even that is unlikely though....at least hurricane level weather.

With latest advisory...looks like Virginia and dare I say D.C. may get hit as well. IAD, DCA,BWI problems in the future?!

Entirely possible, but it depends where it hits. If it hits South Carolina and moves north, it could be fairly weak when it gets to DC. Still thunderstorms and delays, but not necessarily anything catastrophic. If it doesn't hit until northern NC/southern VA, that's another story...

Weather Underground's newest projection has the path a little further east now, not really impacting Florida much at all. Rather, it has it now striking in southern North Carolina and working its way north...impacting the DC area with Cat 1 hurricane strength. That could be...interesting...

Yea, South Florida is dodging a big bullet. NAS should close down sometime Wednesday last afternoon I would imagine. Plenty of flights going out of there today and early monring Wednesday to get tourist out of there. I would imagine Bahamasair will fly their aircraft to FLL and MIA to keep them there while the storm his the NAS area. As for MIA and FLL expect a decent amount of cancelations especially to all flights in the Bahamas and maybe even some other destinations due to en-route weather. Expected big delays due to the fact that intense thunderstorms will be on and off for much of the day thursday. MCO, RSW, TPA might get some diversions. But I dont see any type of airport shut down. Maybe a ground stop or something like that. The Carolina's and even DC/VA area will have a lot of problems Sunday it looks like. Many airports will shut down there.

What will probably end up happening is that MIA will NOT close, however if some strong bands go through some diversions might occur with planes going to MCO. MCO will also experience some of the strong bands from time to time Friday - with diversions going to TPA.

NAS I would consider skipping, the islands and their infrastructure may suffer heave damage. But I would still come to Miami, we are expecting rain bands Thursday into Thursday evening and early Friday. Once they leave you can expect AMAZING weather. I can tell you from experience, with Hurricanes this size once they leave the area they suck all the moisture and energy behind it so we are going to get some clear blue skies and amazing days to follow. Pool side will be fine but the beaches may still be choppy with big waves.

Well there are not too many ships down here this time of year, most leave on fridays-sunday so looking at the track as long as they get into port in Florida on Friday everything should be fine. This ships can go through just about any type of weather you can think of. All depends if they are back in port or not. But I would imagine they would figure it all out. Maybe arrive a day early etc.. They have plans for this. Usually they give passengers money off on another cruise.

Well it all depends if it stays over land, turns on the coast, turns out to sea etc. Right now the National hurricane center has it hitting the Southern New Jersey Coast. But expect the whole east coast from North Carolina to Maine to have some nasty weather this weekend. Air travel will not be easy. Look that it wont be a strong storm by then though. Also the left/west side of the storm will be on the coast which is always the weaker side.

Thanks for the info, I was going to say Jamaica or Cuba.

117 Post contains images jetBlue777 : Looking through the airline's (AA, B6, DL, UA, etc) fan pages on facebook, it is unbelievable that some people actually had the guts to complain about
118 rfields5421 : They should be taking those complaints to their local church, not the airlines. !!!!
119 catiii : I'm a New Yorker who isn't really fazed by much, but I don't agree. Even winds of 60-70 mph whipping through the steel canyons of NYC are problematic

128 Eagleboy : Just heard that it has been declassified to a tropical storm. The SkyNews presenter says this is good news. Don't think so, the difference is only in

138 COEWR787 : So the fact that the four storage yards that were evacuated and trains stored on main lines in the tunnels are also the Union's fault I suppose. And
139 Eagleboy : Most of the safety rules in aviation are erring on the side of caution. The NJ, NY, NC, Penn. authorities did the same......so we should not criticise
140 Post contains links B6JFKH81 : FAA website still shows the airports in the NE closed with no known reopen time. Anyone know of any rumors from PANYNJ about reopening time for JFK/EW
141 jfklganyc : No reopen time as of yet. Most airlines plan on flying tomorrow. That said, we need mass transit up to get people into work. With the subway system sh
