  1. You have no idea just how grateful I am to live here. It's nothing like Central SC. This was Tuesday, looking South towards Asheville. The Black Mountains and Mitchell are in the distance on the left.

    Just reached 60° at 3pm up here today...and that's with sunshine. I am loving this weather!

    It's been raining steadily here in Wolf for the past three hours. Just under 2.5" so far.
  4. A few shots I've taken hiking around my neighborhood this week.

    I'm loving this weather, but some rain would be nice. I'm hoping these showers back to the west of us deliver later this evening.
  6. About to head to the North Toe and try to catch my limit of these again. Perfect weather in the high country today.

    Brad P. posted about the hurricane hunters flying through the Oklahoma storms this evening. At 6,000'. That crew has some serious cajones.

    I love the snow...but nothing beats a day like today. 70°, blue skies and the fish are going nuts.

    I'm looking forward to some great fishing weather tomorrow along the Cane, Toe and Nolichucky. I'm not looking forward to going to Columbia this weekend to put a lift kit on my Jeep though. Looks like mid 90's down there Saturday.

    And it's STILL raining. We had a break for about 90 minutes this afternoon...otherwise it's been raining pretty much all day.

    It's been almost nonstop all day up here. The fish are calling me, this needs to stop for a few days.

    Had to avoid some storms while out fishing this afternoon. Made a friend, too.

    I was born and raised south of Columbia, SC. The summer up here in Wolf is like mid to late March down there. I've reached 78° once at my house here. I love it!

    You'll love the summer time now. I should've left Columbia sooner.

    It's almost like...you could've see this coming. Azalea has flooded more times than I can remember in the 4 years since I moved to WNC.

    I was heading to central SC this weekend. Maybe not though...this setup looks mighty impressive.

    Sunday is shaping up to be an active day in the mountains. SPC AC 120730 Day 3 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0230 AM CDT Fri Apr 12 2019 Valid 141200Z - 151200Z ...THERE IS AN ENHANCED RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS FROM SOUTHERN OHIO AND WEST VIRGINIA SOUTHWARD INTO THE SOUTHEAST... ...SUMMARY... Strong/severe thunderstorms are anticipated Sunday -- centered over the mid and upper Ohio Valley, and central and southern Appalachians. ...Synopsis... A strong mid- and upper-level trough exiting the Plains early in the period is expected to advance steadily east across the Mississippi/Tennessee/Ohio Valleys and central Gulf Coast states, reaching a position from the lower Great Lakes to the southern Appalachians/Southeast late in the period. At the surface, a deepening low is forecast to shift east-northeast across the Ohio Valley through the day, and then across the central Appalachians to the Hudson Valley vicinity by the end of the period. Widespread thunderstorms -- and a broad severe risk -- will accompany this system. ...The Ohio Valley and central Appalachians south to the Southeast... Showers and thunderstorms are forecast to be ongoing in a north-south band from Indiana to Alabama early in the period, ahead of the advancing cold front. As modest heating of a moistening pre-frontal warm sector commences, 500 to 1000 J/kg mixed-layer CAPE is expected to evolve ahead of the ongoing band of convection, from the Ohio Valley to the Gulf Coast. This should result in a gradual intensification of storms through the afternoon, aided by a very strong deep-layer wind field accompanying this storm system -- including 80 to 100 kt south-southwest flow at mid levels. Primary storm mode is progged to be banded/loosely linear, with embedded/complex bows and rotating updrafts. Damaging winds will likely be the primary threat, though tornadoes will also be possible across much of the area -- particularly near and west of the mountains. Risk should diminish gradually through the evening, though local wind risk may persist through the end of the period.

    Got a feeling that I'm too far north and west to see much...which is fine by me.

    I'm ready for some 50's. I can break out the flip flops then.

    I'm smelling petrichor this morning for the first time in quite a while. It's been a while since the ground was dry enough for that.
