Bad news on the eve of what NOAA calls an “extremely active” year for hurricanes; the Boeing-built GOES-13 satellite is broken.  That’s NOAA’s ‘eye in the sky’ for the US East Coast and Caribbean, and with it out of commission, only one spare – GOES-14 – remains.  If that one has issues – and they all have issues sooner or later – only one satellite will be left to cover the entire US, meaning significant gaps in forecasting ability when it’s needed most.

Then again, the European ECWMF model has been way more accurate over the past couple of years; maybe NOAA should just give it up.

Wanna talk about the 2013-14 tropical storm season?  Here’s the  thread.  Great drawing from our pals at Bad Drawings.
