    Hurricane Michael

    We’re fortunate this hit in a relatively sparsely populated area. You can still see the terrible tree damage all over the place not far west of here.

    2019 Banter Thread

    Thanks! I’m looking forward to getting back to NC. My reasons for wanting to move back up there are more involved than just the weather (closer to family again, better job/job opportunities, etc.), but I must admit that I am looking forward to the weather! It will be nice to be able to track storms during the winter with some skin in the game again, and it will be nice to not drown in sweat all summer (not that RDU summers aren’t hot, but it isn’t FL panhandle hot). Maybe RDU can start striking back at GSO in the snowfall department? Obviously, GSO averages more snowfall than RDU for obvious reasons, but the averages aren’t that different, so it seems like RDU has drawn the short straw more often than not this last decade or so. Maybe still paying for the demons of January 2000? I’m moving to SW Durham specifically, so I guess I’ll be in better position than most in the Triangle.

    I got a new job, so I’m moving to Durham next month. I will see snow again! RDU winters are about to start rockin’. (hopefully)

    March 3, 2019 Severe Threat

    Looks like the worst is over here. We still have power, too. That new tornado heading towards Monticello isn’t far from here, but it’s moving east. If it had formed another 10 or 20 minutes earlier, that might have been an issue as I live right along I-10.

    The storm heading towards Thomaville, GA looks bad, too. Not too far from here, either.

    Yep, looks like if it holds together it should pass just to my south, hopefully.

    Just heard to Fishel news. What a big loss for the RDU media market.

    Southeast Sanitarium - A Place to Vent

    Some areas of the Southeast had a historic snowstorm just a little over a month ago. Birmingham averages something like 1.5" of snow per winter. You're not going to see accumulating snows a lot of winters with that kind of an average. It wouldn't surprise me if the median snowfall is 0". With an average like that, the 1993 Superstorm's 13" represents over 8 years of climo, for example, so BHM could've went snowless until the turn of the millennium and still been at climo over that span. Now, that's not to say that Birmingham hasn't been in a snow drought still in recent years, but that's certainly not true everywhere. Some areas of NC are definitely above climo this decade, for example (but these areas had a pretty acute snow drought from 2005-2008). Things may turn around.

    Southeast Sanitarium - A Place to Vent

    Winters are very random in the Southeast by their nature. It only takes one storm for most of us to get to climo. Bad winters with one good week can do this and cold winters can sometimes fail to do this. A good pattern is no guarantee of anything. For example, if it never seems another flake the rest of winter and it torches, GSO will finish at 150% of climo this year, all because of one historic storm in December.

    Post Arctic front snow Tuesday, Jan 29

    Dang, this didn't even work out in AL/MS as far as I can tell (nevermind east of the Appalachians which you figured wasn't going to happen). And they canceled school in some of these areas, too. Disaster.

    Don't you forget about Amazing April and Splendid Spring. April snows will save winter.

    No, but we’ll know on Wednesday. —- On a serious note, this looks like rain chasing the moisture east of the Appalachians, which usually never turns out well. The models do seem to favor a period of snow for the NC Piedmont, though, so we’ll see. Looks like a better storm for N MS/AL/GA.

    Southeast Sanitarium - A Place to Vent

    My winter checklist is a single flake of snow falling from the sky. I don't think that's going to happen, though. At least I saw snow on the ground when I went skiing, I guess? I actually got to see it snow twice last year (here in Tallahassee with our "historic" dusting in early January and about 1" in Greensboro while visiting in late March). I also saw it snow while I was on a vacation in Scandanavia in May 2017. But this winter I might get shut out.

    At least the DC metro is getting theirs, though, am I right?

    January 12th-13th event

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I want to say the CMC is sometimes a little cold at the surface in the mid/long-range, so it could be overdoing the ice threat. Or at least that's what I remember from years ago. It might've changed. Of course, other modeling can tend to run too warm in CAD situations.
