  4. GSP is being very conservative...when the high amount (1 in 10 chance) is only 1" still for Charlotte
  5. The models are going to move so much today, no reason to put in final call maps yet
  6. Hard to put faith into a map that doesn’t even include a B on it
  7. I bet KGSO will cash in regardless but KCLT will have to deal with borderline temps
  8. It's amazing we have the best models there have ever been and they still disagree so much this close to the storm. I was in Greensboro last winter for the 14 inch storm (and was in Boone the same storm when 2 plus feet fell) but kind of doubt anyone gets jackpotted like that. Would love to be proven wrong. Not holding much hope in Charlotte but a few inches would be great
  9. Too early to say that yet. I think tommorows model runs will either make or break this for us.
  10. You have to think of it like pure math If there is a 50-90% chance of it happening and only 10% of it exceeding that then you always do it for the more likely scenatio. The NWS knew it was a possibility today but it was didn't expect this rare scenario. It's a delicate balance since you never want to cry wolf.
