    Hurricane Michael

    Power just came back. It went off again just after I made the post last night when I was in that western eye wall remnant enhanced by the frontal push and it had flickered and gone off briefly. This time it stayed off for 13 hours. But no tree on the house. And I'm grateful. I know so many have been hit so much harder. I hope everyone gets the resources they need to make it through. Eye went right over me here in Roanoke Rapids. Dead calm in the eye, no rain or sound save for the frogs and water dripping from every tree and overhang. Michael, one for the record book and a lifelong memory.

    I was in the eye for quite a while. Pressure bottomed out at 29.10 on the old Springfield unit. I'm in the backside eye wall remnant now and those knife edge wind streaks are serious. Things are hitting the roof and I've taken to the basement a couple of times. Lost power briefly with flickers as well. Power back now.

    Dead calm here now. I think I am in what passes as the remnant eye. Pressure is 29.10. Fell from 29.12 about an hour ago.

    You might be far enough south to avoid the worst as there is a persistent northerly component to the forward motion of the system. Its been on the north edge of the guidance all day.

    I'm still east of this backside action. I'm in a house that is prone to hurricanes dropping trees on it, and far enough north that it could be an issue this time. Fortunately I do have a good basement partially underground and that's where I'll be when it hits if it hits hard enough to warrant. Pressure is 29.12 and still falling.

    Thanks again for all the reports. The worst part of that western flank appears to be in the northern part of the remnant eye wall. Raining heavy here and tropical feeling.

    Noting the position of the center of circulation is on the northern portion of the NHC cone from yesterday when it was south of Raleigh. 2pm fix was due west of Raleigh and just a bit due south of Greensboro. Will be interesting to see the 5pm fix. This GOES 16 floater band shows the surface rotation in lighter shade below the darker obscuring outflow. Thanks for all the reports and best of luck to everyone. https://weather.cod.edu/satrad/exper/?parms=local-NC_VA-05-48-1-100-1&checked=map&colorbar=undefined

    In addition to those two 105's, I recall a 106 too I think at Cape Lookout. I'd like to see the officials too though to be sure.

    Although being in the north and east section of North Carolina my location has not had many of the horrendous consequences of Florence, this is the second day in a row that I have gotten in an absolutely vicious training feeder band. Precip rates very heavy.

    They are currently under a tornado warning. Not seeing or hearing much about that locality specifically, but the whole of the area around Wilmington is in dire straits generally.

    Hurricane Florence

    Water vapor shows that southerly motion that seems evident on radar maybe is not system wide. It does look like that eye wall remnant might make it to Charleston though. Look at the expansive push from the north of that banana high pressure ridge. https://www.tropicaltidbits.com/sat/satlooper.php?region=06L&product=wv-mid

    Southerly component to the movement is evident lately, past 3 or 4 hrs or so. Myrtle Beach in the remains of the eye at the moment, and the remnant eye wall to their west looks still to have some potency.

    Wow! Hang in there man. Best wishes and thanks for the report.

    Hurricane Florence

    I think it likely that yes, it will stay north and west of Myrtle Beach. But its close and the way it can wobble, hard to say. The main point though is that it did not go directly south and back over water before turning west into MB as some models showed.

    Looks to be close to the border just now. Although still in the Tar Heel state I think.
