  1. Here on the Coast, Hit the freezing mark @ 8am, (roughly).. Now at 31.. Pressure 30.31 in Visibility 9 miles Clouds Cloudy Dew Point 29 F Humidity 93 % Winds NNE @ 17~20 mph..
  2. KILM.. .SHORT TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/... Shallow arctic air moving into the area Thursday night. A very chilly rain falling will start to turn to freezing rain from NW to SE, not long after midnight over far interior zones and closer to daybreak along the immediate coast. And while the forecast has not changed much in the last 12 hours or so there still seems to be a distinct possibility that the vertical thickness of the cold air may be on the rise and at least part of the area winds up with more of a sleet storm that a near full duration freezing rain event. If so this will cut down on the potential for ice accretion. Sleet certainly poses travel hazards all its own, but tends to be less hazardous than pure FZRA. This is due to the fact that the warm nose now looks less pronounced and a broad baroclinic zone nearly stalls parallel to the coast. The immediate coast may also stand to see lower ice amounts due to a brief afternoon rise (barely) above freezing. Freezing rain persists along the coast for most of Friday night while inland the cold air thickens in height and sleet and eventually snow become favored. Most areas appear to change over to all snow as the precipitation tapers off leading to small accumulations nearly area-wide that may total almost a half inch over interior/west of I95 counties. Due to the uncertainties discussed above all of the Carolina NWS offices have decided to hold off on upgrading the Winter Storm Watch at this time.
  3. I (think) the Modeling (Models), haven't taken this lil tid-bit of Data into account.. (Just My 2 pennies here).. .. As the Low transfers off the Coast, The SST's here, are in fact, WARMER than usual, than other years.. by 10F .. Temps are still reading 62~65F here on the Beach's..
  4. Great PHB Folks.. From KILM here on the Coast.. High pressure nosing in from the northeast on Saturday while a potent trough dives south into the Ark-La-Tex. The wedge will keep highs stuck in the low to mid 40s north of I-95 while southern areas see upper 40s. Saturday night as the upper low crosses the Gulf States its initial surface low will be directly underneath the upper low. At the same time height falls and strengthening warm advection cause falling pressure off the Southeast coast and POPs will be rising. The 00Z guidance suite is showing some semblance of coming towards a solution, but at this time it seems that none of them probably have the evolution of the low level features correct. The GFS probably looks the most suspect in its (new) depiction of a dual- centered low though it has some faint support from the Canadian. The EC solution indicates that the coastal low immediately comes to dominate especially by 12Z Sunday. The aforementioned congealing of just about all guidance is for a slightly slower progression as well as a storm track closer to the coast. For our CWA this means that the opportunity for wintry precip has decreased. At this time it looks like what may start as light rain early on will then change to a chance for wintry precip as the wetbulb process causes temperatures to fall, especially inland. The closer track suggests that this window may be small before the warm air aloft overwhelms the system and most of the event is a cold rain, and possibly a substantial drought-relieving one at that. It is worth stressing however that this is only one model run and there still appears to be an increasing chance for a significant ice storm SOMEWHERE in the Carolinas.

  9. Ya got that right..
  10. I thought it would be someone elses fault? isn't that how it ends? Asking for a friend.. Wishcasting a Cat 5 on Top on #NOLA,, complete Leeve Failures,, I jest..
  11. [quote]Ok, so my post responding to the crazy person ranting about climate change and the left was deleted, but that stays up. Nice storm mode.[/quote] I rather enjoyed His *RANT* coming from a retired COE,, It's called "Truth telling" & He's probably right..
  12. Not unless it's snake bites, gator attacks, Bull sharks , We just deal with it..
  13. Need to come to SENC after a cane... Ya'll are WEAK.. 2 weeks the NORM.. Country folks can survive & all that..
  14. I believe it's that New alien, Common Core Maff I've been hearing about? Anyhoo BOT.. Interesting Analyses, We here in SENC up too OBX Coast(s) have had, about our wettest Summer eva, and Lotsa QPF could be our demise,, Dennis/Floyd esq, type stuff,, In other words extreme flooding very possible.. If some of those Forecast tracks, come to pass..
  15. Best bait too use catching trout.. It's going to be My first try this weekend.. (Gatlinburg,tenn areas)..
  16. Current Obs, just alil warm out..
  17. Roughly 2.0" of precip here in the ILM FA.. SENC/carolinas region.. 74/85.. light rain currently drought canceled..
  18. Most *Notable*, (In My book).. Report post Posted Sunday at 02:34 AM Hi! I’m so sorry to hear that he and his family endured such a horrible loss. I was born thirty years (1970) after your neighbor, in Wilmington, and have been a hurricane researcher from the time I experienced my very first hurricane eyewall in 1984 (Diana). Here’s a list of all known TS’ and H’s that have made a direct hit on Wilmington, NC (1940-2020): Dennis (1981) TS Storm 2 (1982) STS (offshore) Diana (1984) Cat 2 (eyewall) Gloria (1985) TS winds (H-offshore) Kate (1985) TS Hugo (1989) TS winds (H-SC landfall) Gordon (1994) TS winds (H-offshore) Opal (1995) TS winds (TS-west) Bertha (1996) Cat 2 (eye).. (I rode that one out on **Sheep Island** on the Lockwood Folly River..) Fran (1996) Cat 3 (eye) (I got "smart" & bought a generator).. Bonnie (1998) Cat 2 (eye) Floyd (1999) Cat 2 (eye) Charley (2004) Cat 1 (eye) Ophelia (2005) Cat 1 (eyewall) Ernesto (2006) TS/Cat 1 (eye) Matthew (2016) Cat 1 (eyewall) Florence (2018) Cat 1 (eye) Isaias (2020) Cat 1 (eye)
  19. Yes I've resided in Wilmington, since (forever),, anything after 1969.. My earliest memories, dob in the early 60's..
