    Mid to Long Term Discussion 2018

    December to remember coming up!! Love these trends. Bring me a cold D/J and then back into the 60's for F/M. :-)
  2. Back edge coming into SC on radar thankfully. Probably another half inch or so to go here in the Triad. Should easily put GSO into the #2 wettest year all time criteria. I can honestly say I have gotten almost nothing done outside this year. Seems like wind is increasing all morning and we have power outages here in Kernersville. Dont need anymore of that nonsense.
  3. I've had the DP map pulled up all day and noticed just in the last hour or so the 20(s) DPs are starting to ooze southward in central virginia. Actually made a strong push along the coast and sandhills. This should be fun to watch CAD at work so early in the season.

    I think normally this would be a blowout event for the region but the CAD is minimal for most of NC (low DPs are hung up in VA with only the border counties in NC looking good). I think we will see a mix even here in the central triad overnight but nothing to show for it. Even at my mountain house in Patrick county there is an elevation dependent WSW. Over 2500' looking for up to 2" of sleet. Under 2500' likely a mix with little to no accums. This will be a "close but no cigar" event for 99% of this board in NC. The radar looks ominous though for ongoing flooding. We need a major break next week.

    Cuz there isn't really a significant ice storm headed for the mtns and foothills. Very narrow band of winners with this one. But rapid melting and liquid refreshments for most.

    We could have also measured the amount of grass seed and top soil lost and come up with these same rankings. This is painful!!

    Today just sucked weather wise. The worst two temp ranges on the thermometer are 40's and 90's. Both are miserable, both generally come with other condtions like humidity and rain that make it unbearable to venture outside, and in the case of 40's its too warm to snow (lose) and with 90's its too damn hot to go on the boat and enjoy bikinis (lose). Is it too much to ask for just 2 weeks of 58° and sunny? I'd like to use my leaf blower please.

    November 2018 Observations

    Noticing a LOT of dead branches coming out of trees. Some broken by Michael and the wet and wind brought them down last night, others just rotten from all the rain this year. Either way, be careful in your yards and watch overhead trees in neighborhoods as you are walking or running. Has me concerned that the first decent snowfall is going to cause a lot of power outages.

    At last I see a "slight" chance of light snow in the forecast here in the Triad next Sunday night. But still a few 70° highs to endure this week before we get there. Purely going by the "count of bugs trying to get in my house" forecast, I'd say the cold is indeed coming soon.

    Eyewall, amazing pics. Whats your drone setup? I'm all in for Christmas this year.

    Already a lot of wet, adding up to really wet, followed by more wet. An over-producer based on the forecast. I'd love to at least salvage Sunday but after a solid couple inches of rain (I'll check the gauge when I get home), no yardwork will be done! Ugh.

    First frost this morning!! Cars are icy across the triad. Ground still a bit too warm. (But yes, rates could overcome...LoL!)

    Hurricane Michael

    Man I have a hard time believing that. I bet we had sustained 45mph winds here in Kernersville for nearly 20 minutes. There definitely had to be a few gusts over 55mph but I guess that is whats recorded at KINT and/or KGSO. Collectively all of these recordings just seem low to me given the damage.

    Hurricane Michael

    How much rain did Danville get? And down towards Stoneville? Hearing there was a lot of farm damage up there. Tornado-ish?
