    July 2019 OBS

    Today makes the "heatwaves" we had earlier this year look silly, give me 98/60 any day compared to this crap..heat index of 104 before 11 am currently 90/77 just brutal out there.....the upside is if the storms can fire up there could be some pretty decent storms. Surface cape pushing 6k here already lol....

    July 2019 OBS

    Got between 2-2.5" yesterday and last night, and close to 5" for the week....I had less than a .25" the previous 20 or so days though so it averages out lol.

    I dunno about less humid but highs in the upper 80's is actually below normal for MBY this time of year,so the next 3 days technically will be below normal with highs only forecasted to get to 88-89....average high is 90 here until late July when it eases back down to 89 lol....
  4. Yeah the rain was insane, we had 9-10" in just 3 hrs at one point, my parents house is on a hill and the rain was flooding the sub level due to water running down on the back of the hill putting 2-3" of water in parts of the downstairs. The wind was only bad for 2-3 hrs with gust to the low 70 mph range. Almost all the roads and bridges where washed out, we were stuck at my parents for 2 days before being able to get home 7 miles away, when we got home we actually had power there unlike my parents. It was only the 3rd day after the storm that the water in the river reached a level that caused the entire county to lose power, then there was no power for 4-5 days....no power, no water, temps pushing 95 it sucked. The one memory that sticks with me is how the grocery stores smelled after being without power for 4 days in 90 degree heat, they where allowing people in small groups in to food and the smell of all the meats and other stuff spoiling was gag worthy.....put me off grocery stores for months.

    General Severe Weather

    Soundings are a bit worrisome for NC tomorrow......latest 3k NAM suggest some discrete supercells and then a few MCS type bowing segments over central and eastern NC.......

    Again it depends on where you are plenty of severe weather all over North Carolina today, easily verified the enhanced risk....

    Around the 1:16 mark he seems to get into a little trouble when he turns to reposition and the drone drops and you can catch a glimpse of some leaves or small branches falling past at 1:20ish so

    That was a house under construction......still some of the footage shows trees that are what you would expect from a violent higher end tornado......at least a high end EF3....
