  1. At Salvo, Hatteras Island for the week. High surf advisory til Tuesday. Wind advisory tonight for gusts to 50.
  2. Heading to Outer Banks on Sunday for the week (Hatteras Island)...should see topical storm conditions there. 10-12 foot waves. We got evacuated during Hurricane Arthur...hopefully Jose stays off the coast as currently modeled.
  3. Idiots. Just saw a lady run away from a huge wave crashing over the wall. Worst part is these are the people that will put first responders in harms way when they need to get rescued after foolishly staying put.
  4. 40+ foot waves right now targeting Turks and Caicos. Wow.
  5. It's like if there's a mass distro email sent out in the office and then someone decides to hit reply all followed by 10 different people saying "Can you stop replying all to these emails...its really annoying..."
  6. Given the magnitude of the storm, I'm kind of surprised watches haven't been issued for Miami/etc as of the 5am update. I know, I know...its not as if people aren't already preparing without the Hurricane Watch, but just an observation of mine when I went to Weather.gov and didn't see the advisories extended to FL.
  7. Would likely bring it into the GOM after 126.
  8. Euro turned it N at ~80W..interesting to see how close/over 80W GFS takes it.
  9. While HMON and GFS are way overdone on intensity, it’s still pretty crazy to watch it throw out intensity like that. Hopefully this thing misses the US.
  10. Hope the latter are correct.
  11. Blackwall Hitch on the waterfront in Alexandria is large both inside and outside. Food is standard fare (nothing that will knock your socks off) but it's good for a group.
  12. Got down to 33 in McHenry at 2800 feet. Woke up at 9 with no snow on the ground (not sure if we got any overnight). Partly cloudy and 46 now.
  13. I've never experienced snow in May so I am looking forward to that part. NWS Pitt calling for less than 0.5" tomorrow which is pretty remarkable for May 7. I'll take pictures. 38, windy, and light rain. Let's go Caps!
  14. Scattered showers, cloudy, and 40 degrees here in Garrett County. Rain/snow mix expected overnight. F this weather.
  15. Impressive rain. Radar in cva looks impressive with it pushing north. 0.65" in the gauge
