    December 8-10 Storm Discussion

    No snow on the ground here currently, however think the system overnight will provide 1-3" of snow county wide.

    Fall Observations 2018

    A noon temp of 70 degrees and a dew point of 64 degrees. Could get into upper 70s maybe even 80 today before cold front moves through.

    A very nice and cool 66 degrees today, reached 50 degrees this morning. Fall is most certainly here!

    Major Hurricane Michael

    Mesovorticies well inland, truly an impressive hurricane.

    Because apparently a category 2 can produce EF3-like damage across an entire city?

    Damage there is quite like a tornado, heard the entire city was severely damaged.

    Spring/Summer 2018 Observations

    Nice and sunny out currently, though pretty hot. 86 degrees with a dew of 70 on my PWS for a heat index of 90 degrees. So much for fall.
  8. i gotta say, this is a top notch troll
  9. Category 1 or 3 at landfall, we got a death toll of 16 which is probably gonna rise and multiple FFEs ongoing. What the strength it came in at doesn't matter much currently. NHC did great and couldn't have handled it any better.

    Major Hurricane Florence: STORM MODE THREAD

    Flash Flood Emergency for the city of Charlotte. Very strong wording with this one. * Flash Flood Warning for... Mecklenburg County in the Piedmont of North Carolina... * Until 730 PM EDT Sunday. * At 123 PM EDT, emergency management reported severe impacts from flash flooding in Mecklenburg County. Streams and creeks are running very high in South Charlotte, Matthews, and nearby areas. In some areas these bodies of water have risen to record stages and the extent of impacts may be unprecedented in some locations...flooding areas which have not flooded in recent memory. Up to three inches of rain have fallen since early morning, with an additional 2 to 4 inches likely to fall through tomorrow morning. Flash flooding will continue. This is a FLASH FLOOD EMERGENCY for central and southeast Mecklenburg County. This is a PARTICULARLY DANGEROUS SITUATION. SEEK HIGHER GROUND NOW!
  11. just nearly 300 people dying and surge reaching and obliterating miles of coastline in MS. quite the low end event if you ask me
  12. katrina didn't flood the entire earth, low end event

    What to do for Meteorology

    Thank you all for the options and suggestions. USAF didn't cross my mind but will certainly go into my option list. Thank you all.

    WSV3 has had a lot of issues since launch in December 2015 and still isn't really 100% functional. Satellite feature has been off for a majority of the year and not sure when it will return. I don't suggest buying WSV3. GRearth is a great alternative which is subscription based and has a 7 day free trial and uses Allison house. There's a program that carries free level 3 data that uses contour and layer based programming called Weatherscope. There's a radarscope browser based program on Stormtrack.org which carries level 2 and level 3 data and is free. There's GRlevel2 which carries level 2 data and Grlevel3 which carries level 3 data, but is on a 21 day free trial Weather Scope- https://www.mesonet.org/index.php/weather/weatherscope Storm Track/Radarscope- https://stormtrack.org/radarscope/ Grlevel 2 and 3- http://www.grlevelx.com/

    Fall Observations 2018

    Started off pretty sunny this morning but has gotten cloudy over the afternoon. 18z HRRR run had us getting about .25-.75" of rain tomorrow. Nothing major, haven't gotten some good rain in about a week.
