  1. 1/16-1/17 Event OBS

    Morrisville, couple miles SSE of RDU.
  2. Potential 1/17-1/18 threat

    Here's the link for the "cliff divers" thread: https://www.americanwx.com/bb/topic/49431-southeast-sanitarium-a-place-to-vent/?page=118
  3. Potential 1/17-1/18 threat

    I didn't think my ignore list could get bigger after last January. Yeesh.
  4. Potential 1/17-1/18 threat

    (The variable number of Rs never stops amusing me.)
  5. 1/16-1/17 Event OBS

    Light but increasing snow in central Morrisville. My little weather station says 36.0F, but it's not well-situated. 85% humidity.
  6. Potential 1/17-1/18 threat

    Could anyone provide a direct link to this particular product? The map portions are always blurry and pixelated once they're embedded in the forum.
  7. Potential 1/17-1/18 threat

    (RTP proper fully salted.)
  8. January 3-4 Storm Thread part II

    Ah, been misinterpreting your posts all day.
  9. January 3-4 Storm Thread part II

    (Sorry, deleted original. If other folks delete their replies I'll nuke this one too.)
  10. Jan 3-4th Coastal Crusher OBS

    Sunny but hazy in RTP.
  11. January 3-4 Storm Thread part II

    WRAL/Gardner says "possible" 1-4" Wednesday night. Some warnings are up but east of I-95 only so far.
  12. January Observations

    14 in Morrisville.
  13. Hurricane Maria

    Ha! Interesting point. During Irma's FL landfall I found myself hunting for a local Palm Beach County news affiliate (friends there riding out the storm) and ended up watching WPBF's live feed for quite a while. They were actually doing a really good job tracking tornado sightings, warnings, potential areas of concern, and giving very specific details. (Like, which intersection and what direction a given tornado had been sighted--this was when the east coast of Florida was getting the "bad" side of the storm.) They were really on their game, with relatively minimal hype. Although I suppose it stopped being helpful when everyone lost power.
  14. Hurricane Maria

    (Dumb tech nerd question: wouldn't it be desirable to make these instruments extremely rugged, like aircraft black boxes?)
  15. Tropical Banter Thread

    I'm actually on a cruise ship heading away from Hispaniola right now, which is kind of freaky because it means yesterday we were heading *towards* Maria (for Royal Caribbean's port on Haiti). Fortunately I didn't tell my mother about this trip because she'd be (irrationally) losing her mind right now. Now torn between worrying about my friend's family in San Juan (and all of PR) and wondering if Maria will manage to jog west far enough to hang around off Florida just in time to stop me from getting off this ship as scheduled on Sunday.
