I've decided to follow @TropicalTidbits' convention and mark more technical tweets with the hashtag #TweetForScientists. I think it's a nice way to indicate a purposeful inclusion of that info, plus it offers an easy keyword for non-technical users to mute, if they choose.
ASHEVILLE NC Apr 19 Climate: Hi: 66 Lo: 56 Precip: 5.05 Snow: 0.0 https://mesonet.agron.iastate.edu/p.php?pid=201904192035-KGSP-CDUS42-CLIAVL …
Asheville picks up just over 5 inches of rain in ~12 hours. Context: that’s the fourth highest daily total on record (por: 1869) and 5”/12h has around a 0.5-1.0% annual exceedance probability.
6. Marianna, Florida, which is over 50 miles inland, had 1,000 buildings with major damage or destroyed. Seminole County, the most Southwest County in Georgia, reported damage to 99% (!!) of homes. Both had gusts in excess of 100 MPH.
The severity of inland wind damage seen with #Michael was rare. Nearly every home was damaged in a Georgia county 60+ miles inland. Threaded that and some other details from the NHC report earlier. 👇
“What’s my legacy? Food and wine. This is just a job.” Gregg Popovich was kidding, kind of. But the legendary basketball coach is equally revered in the culinary world.

What an amazing article. Highly recommend.
NOAA analysis determined Hurricane Michael was a Category 5 #hurricane at landfall last October. Details at https://www.noaa.gov/media-release/hurricane-michael-upgraded-to-category-5-at-time-of-us-landfall …
With Michael upgraded to a Cat 5, this means 3 consecutive years (2016-2018) had at least 1 category 5 hurricane in the Atlantic basin, the first time since 2003-2005.
End/ For even more detail, I would encourage you to read the full #Michael report from NHC. They put a lot of time and care into these reports. https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/data/tcr/AL142018_Michael.pdf …
1. Hurricane #Michael post-storm report has been published by NHC. The big headline, of course, is that it has been upgraded to Category 5 at landfall near Panama City, Florida. But there are other interesting details in the report. https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/data/tcr/AL142018_Michael.pdf …
