    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.

    For what it's worth, the FV3 has this on the 12Z run for March 4th...

    I imagine the folks back in 1927 said the same thing about their March storm. 24" here in Fayetteville. These epic storms do happen here, just decades apart

    Hurricane Florence

    I have been communicating with my brother in Wilmington, and it is BAD in that area. He has never seen flooding this bad in that area, and he has been through many hurricanes down there.

    Florence Observations

    11.8" of rain here in northern Cumberland County (Linden), just north of Fayetteville. Several trees down in a low wet area behind my house. No power now for just over 48 hours. I spoke with my brother in Wilmington and it is BAD down there, he is stuck where he is at home as there is flooding within a half mile of him in either direction.

    Florence Observations

    Wind gusts just picked up big time here north of Fayetteville. A few trees down and some tops of trees taken out. Worst winds yet from Florence here

    Florence Observations

    Just over 2" of rain here so far just north of Fayetteville, NC (Linden). About right as forecast calls for 2 to 3 inches today, 4"+ tonight, and 4"+ tomorrow.
