    Dorian Observations

    Ah, I see

    Dorian Observations

    I thought Wilmington received 26" of rain with Florence last year? I know that was over multiple days but I would have thought the daily record would have been shattered during Florence?

    Dorian

    This /\ /\ made all the difference with Matthew (as far as heaviest precip being on the west side). I live near Fayetteville, NC and watched what that can do first hand

    Category Five Hurricane Dorian

    It was caused by interaction with convergence to it's west (can't remember if it was a trough or what was approaching) and that enhanced the rainfall on the west side of the storm. Some areas inland received much more rain than coastal areas.

    Dorian

    With gusts over 200 mph ! Strongest hurricane on record this far north in the Atlantic

    Category Five Hurricane Dorian

    No big deal for Florida maybe, but was disastrous up here in the central/eastern Carolinas for flooding. A slow moving hurricane up the coast is definitely not a better outcome

    June 2019 OBS

    Dewpoints are inching up. Low humidity been the good and the bad about our heat so far...it does give relief in the shade and when there is a breeze, but it is drying everything up so fast.

    April 18, 19, 2019 Severe Event

    I agree, but a couple of hours of sun could change that quickly. There are breaks in the clouds behind this initial shot of rain.

    I read somewhere that normally it could, but due to the dynamics and strength of this setup it would have little impact. If the sun comes out later after these storms pass as it did earlier towards Charlotte, I don't think it will matter.

    April 18, 19, 2019 Severe Event

    I was within a mile of one of the tornadoes back in April of 2011. I could hear it very well (loud roar) and found paperwork in my yard from a house that was 30 miles away. Several homes were wiped off their fondation. Hopefully nothing like that day materializes today. I usually keep up with the weather but that day I was not, and had no clue what was going on. My first clue that something bad was near was the changing wind direction as the storm progressed. Moral of the story, keep an eye on things today, surprises can pop up fast.
