    Winter 2018-2019 Speculation

    Yea, i'd give more credence to the ice scenarios not so much because well experience more Miller B's verse Miller A storm tracks by a wider margin. But mainly because the miller As even though more pronounceced/common verse usual climo, will be amped a lot more and screw up 850's while Cad does it's thing at the surface.

    Winter 2018-2019 Speculation

    Rays was almost spot on last year. Doe's a great job. I'd put all my marbles in JB,Robert,Rays and Grit. Think Allen throws one out there as well, before any and everyone else. Great Read!
  3. Yep NChailstorm has been following it for 2 days on the FV3. Not to mention several big time forecasters sniffing out a pattern that should be ripe late next week for a box office smash hit for the wx nerd world we all live in. The pattern, teleconnections are screaming something big should evolve and now the new and soon to be gfs, is lending credence. Well have to see how this evolves, but chances are high a eastern seaboard headline wx story should take place last week of the month .

    Mid to Long Term Discussion 2018

    That was a good little read. Lot to look forward to where things stand now Oct 16. As the next 4-6 weeks unfold we should see the players lining up. Lets just hope the configuration ends up being in the right spots. Once the table is set, we can start passing around the entrees and eat. See if the new /soon to be GFS is onto something with this late month storm signal. Nice ice storm in the cad areas. But its not unusual to get some type of big wx event/storm on the eastern seaboard late October. Seems every 2-3 years now we are in a cycle that produces a news maker wx event.

    Today may qualify as the first Cold Rain of the season. Gonna be a wet winter no doubt with weak el nino. Thanks to Florence and Michael already out of the gate warp speed. Sure Brick is gonna love all these cold drizzle days while we chase snow all winter lol. The leafs are runing over 2 weeks behind schedule espeacilly in mtns. Ill be up next weekend, so hopefully the cool wx this week post Monday can flip the switch real quick. We usually hit peak Halloween day into the first week of November here. Think ours will be late as well. The Mtns should already be passing their peak mid October and like all of us green, thanks to the record long lasting warmth.

    Power still out from Asheboro all the way down old 49 in Randolph County. Cant beleive # of tress wrapped up in power lines. Old hwy 49 still closed. Waiting on power crews to kill lines so dot can remove trees from road. Gotta help folks throw out alot of groceries this afternoon but thankfully I have power at my house and can bring them in. Spent 7 day plus stretches without power on several occasions, all winter wx related. You can save food so much easier. But in summer or early fall its impossible without lots of ice, despite a day featuring highs in only the upper 60s with full sun. All ive heard non stop is people talk about they had no clue this was coming or supose to be this bad. Raleigh had our winds in the point click with highest gust,not sustained at 23mph as late as yesterday morning before they finally caved to the short range models and figured out the metorology of a unque situation. In fact Wednesday night point and cli k had winds only as high as 12 mph.

    SHORT RANGE MODELS, where as advertis3d. That event had some ump to it. Had enough with cane season and espeacilly summer. Feel the cooler air moving in now. Hate it for everyone across SE that has to deal with the after effects from Flo and now Michael.

    Keep us posted. Center of circulation is just passing you by to the east through Union county. If its gonna be, then kickoff will start shortly. Feel like we are watching waiting for the solar eclipse again, waiting for this def band of winds to come charging in. Side note: As crazy as our wx seems to be lately. Mediterranean has a cat 1 storm in it. Rare, but can happen

    To add to it. Twc will be gold next half hour to hour and half. Can see things really ramp up right before commercial break.

    Ive been wanting to say this since yesterday. Made it a point to read point and click along with forecast discussion. My highest wind gust per rah nws should be 23mph. Wind gust. Thats this a.m discussion. Lot of dynamics and metorology at play here besides the decaying circulation and deciding whos on the rihgt side and whos on the left. Forward speed ,front interaction, turning extra tropical etc

    Down to 931mb. Put in perspective Andrew was 922, Hugo & Hazel right in neighborhood of 928-934ish off top of my head.
