  1. You do a good job with your outlooks. Thanks for posting and good luck with your forecast.
  2. Yeah the Raleigh office covers that area. In terms of this AmWx subforum, Winston is a good spot winter weather wise. I would recommend you have an alternate heat source (generator / fireplace / wood stove / gas logs) as that area is prone to have significant ice storms at times. Here are a few links and an image for some more info... http://www.weather.gov/rah/events http://climate.ncsu.edu/climate/winter_wx/Patterns.php http://climate.ncsu.edu/climate/winter
  3. Severe weenies are bigger weenies than winter weenies
  4. Had enough hail around 8:00-8:30 to where it was white on the ground in many areas and looked like a "light dusting". Largest was around marble size. That's probably the 2nd most hail I've seen on the ground (most was a storm one spring in the mid 80's).
  5. Isotherm - you had one of the best performing outlooks I've seen for this winter. Excellent job on the 500mb pattern prediction.
  6. Well indeed, this was your storm eyewall, lol
  7. Any upslope component for you there?
  8. Nice eyewall. What a photo! Getting nuked right there. May not be 2 feet so far, but I thought you'd get a good one with that 700mb low tracking so far west.
  9. I would be interested to hear from burrell on the peach farm. Looks like a rough couple of nights ahead after a warm winter and early growth
  10. Is this report from WeatherNC?
  11. There's a ton of QPF model data back to Dec 2001 at this site (GFS, NAM, NGM...even Euro and UKMet) - http://www.emc.ncep.noaa.gov/mmb/ylin/pcpverif/daily/
  12. Here's a map, but it looks overdone in some areas. Terrible year from Kansas to KY to DC
  13. Pic from my house yesterday...azaleas are really confused man
  14. This is your storm eyewall...enjoy! Pinehurst had a little dusting yesterday, lol
  15. Yeah it's a nice site. You can also select the GFS and NAM for comparison. Only thing I'm not clear on is how often it updates, and just scanning it, the model run isn't clear...but I haven't used it much yet
