    Looking Ahead to Fall and Winter

    Just give me Accuwxs "mainly pleasant" conditions all the way to Christmas Eve, then a 1 week long polar vortex between Christmas Day and New Years Day that dumps double our avg annual snowfall, then normal winter conditions for Jan/Feb and I'll deal with whatever is left over in March. It's not that hard Mother Nature. It's just not that hard.

    We are also at that point in time when the late afternoon heat isn't quite as intense. As long as you stay in the office during the mid-day hours you can still mow the lawn after supper without frying. Mid-day 90s quickly drop to low 80's and upper 70's which ain't bad. Another 3-4 weeks and those 7am bus stops will be far more enjoyable. Hang on friends, those 90 day winter outlooks will be coming into range very soon!

    So much for that August "polar vortex". Looks like it is skipping off to the Northeast leaving us with basically normal temps, maybe a couple degrees cooler, and dry here in the triad. I'm just going to wait for mid-Sept to cash in my chips for a cool and crispy, leaf crunching fall.

    I didnt think the sandhills would be that far behind the triad but you are correct. Went and looked at the averages and you are a solid 3-4 weeks behind us through Sept/Oct. I need some 50's soon!

    Daily Hi/Lo averages across the triad and most of the carolinas dont really fall much in August. September is the cliff. Drops from mid 80's down to low 70's for Highs and down into the low 50' for lows. So not much relief....yet. But certainly a pause from 90's for many.

    2019 Tropical Weather Discussion

    Lol. Making the analogy only to point out that any system that develops in this region, and in the absence of limiting factors, has an undisturbed massive heat source available with these record SSTs. A named storm could go thru an RI cycle across the gulfstream and go from TD to Cat 4 or 5 in just a couple of days. Not unprecedented when conditions are pristine.

    Without limiting factors this could be Katrina in 8 days given the SSTs right now. So the focus should be on what prevents development vs whether or not there will be development. This is going to be an interesting next 90 days in the tropics.

    It's way too early to be worried about cold and snow but what is all this nonsense popping up in my Youtube feeds about August cold, amazing fall snow totals, polar vortexes and the like?? You would think winter starts tomorrow and its going to be epic! I think once I clicked on one video Youtube turned my recommendations into weather weenie central.

    Those folks in that line just south of the Triad are having an interesting day. I posted earlier thinking the hammer was about to drop again just north of I40 and we didnt get a drop. Towers went up right outside my back door and then crept south. But as others have mentioned, what a difference in temps!! 78°, cloudy and a slight breeze. Gotta mow!

    And once again the hammer is getting dropped on Forsyth County. I've been trying to mow my yard for 4 days now. Non-moving thunderstorm blowing up overhead as we speak. Deluge inbound.

    Fantastic! I'll be in Jacksonville FL all week. Looks to be the hottest place on the planet. Just what I needed. I must be in a microclimate here in Forsyth County the last week or so. It seems like it has rained every day. Its raining now! We had FFWs in Winston 2 nights ago. I dont need much more rain right now, but I'm sure many do. 13 weeks to October. Countdown underway.......

    2019 Tropical Weather Discussion

    Hasnt been created in our forum yet. May be one in the LA, TX and west forum. Probably not much for us to track here other than a general discussion. If Barry decides to shift towards the apps and spin for a while it will get much more interesting.

    Gauges are maxed out on the mississippi. A foot or more of rain along with a 3' storm surge, and possible tropical storm force winds slowing down the river outflow (even for a few hours) = disaster again for the French Quarter and various low spots around the city. Hope these people truly learned their lesson from Katrina and evac early. No excuses this time around.

    Seeing some hints around the interwebs of a cooler than normal, less humid spell coming in the 10 day range. I'm so dang busy I have no time to play in the weather, much less watch models, so I'll leave it to the experts here. Any truth to this coming July Ice Age?

    74° at 6:30am can only mean one thing.....my back deck is going to be a blast furnace by 10am. Ugh! I cannot express enough how much I hate summer heat.

    General Severe Weather

    When that storm came through Kernersville earlier today the wind was strong enough to blow the rain bands out ahead of the storm. It was raining sideways with the sun still out for about a minute. Havent seen that before.

    New GFS is now operational

    Excellent! I'll take my 16" of snow forecasted for mid December to the bank and throw the rest of the winter out the window. It would be nice if they tweaked it enough to at least accurately predict Jan/Feb torches!

    This little gem deserves a name. Making a huge impact. Radar just continuing to reload. Several inches still to go. Shouldnt be anyone with drought concerns once this one passes.

    If we get 3-6" of rain today on top of what just fell across the triad, especially Winston proper over the last 3 hours or so, look out. Bigtime flash flooding.

    Radar starting to show a nice little sit and spin action dead over the triad. I dont think we're outta the woods quite yet Burnsie. Thankfully I live on top of a hill. Might hit 6" by tomorrow morning.

    FFW for the triad. 2018 all over again. The big wet continues!!

    Mid to Long Term Discussion 2019

    If there was such a thing as a humidity ridge the ensembles would be showing that for sure cuz I'm kinda feelin' like we're sitting right under a luke warm water faucet right now. We just can't win here with weather anymore. I don't need 3 months of humid and wet. I had that last year.

    General Severe Weather

    Line that just went through the Triad was amping up the whole time. Very heavy rain, maybe some pea size hail and some solid lighting activity. Radar is loaded. Wouldnt want to be in central and eastern NC today if all of these cells start going severe.

    Hope not. I am under it as we speak!

    General Severe Weather

    I was hoping these storms would set up just east of the Triad as often happens. Not today. Some good looking cells kicking off just east of the mountains and I have a warning here in Stuart already today. Could be a hail damage kinda day!
