Re: Question About Relationship Between Barometric Pressure, Wind and Storm Surge in Hurricanes

Posted by LawKat on 7/16/2017, 9:23 pm

My theory on that is that the bulge of water that was driven by a previous Cat 4/5 doesn't just physically dissipate. My theory is that you still end up with the surge of a 4 or 5, especially so in the GOMEX and its close proximity to all lands that encircle it.

I think, as it is studied more, this theory, may in part, prove correct. Wind lacks physical properties and is more transient, and as it lowers, it just lowers. Water, as a physical liquid, does not adhere to being so transient and short lived.
