  1. Started snowing in Western Cary, Carpenter area about 10-15 minutes ago. Small flakes but it is snowing.
  2. To make it even more laughable Wake County gets more snow on that map then anywhere else in the United States or Canada.
  3. Someone on Southern Weather said that the HRRR uses the same algorithm that the RAP uses. So that really is not unexpected or surprising.
  4. Even is the models trend back with more QPF do you really think that Western Wake County will only be in the 1-2 inch range?
  5. WAR flexed just enough to slow down the NS and allow the SS to catch up just a little.
  6. Not necessarily because that would cause WAA mixing issues and a lot of ice. That many of us don't want to see.
  7. Still rain/snow mix Cary Park area of West Cary.
  8. Not sure if this has been posted before but Interesting read. https://observer.com/2019/08/weather-forecast-noaa-prediction-models-accuracy/
  9. FYI now a hurricane: : ...DORIAN BECOMES A HURRICANE NEAR ST. THOMAS IN THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS... ...MULTIPLE OBSERVATIONS OF HURRICANE-FORCE WINDS IN ST. THOMAS... 2:00 PM AST Wed Aug 28 Location: 18.3°N 65.0°W Moving: NW at 13 mph Min pressure: 997 mb Max sustained: 75 mph
  10. Big part of it was the fact the the eye reformed something like 75 miles further to the North of the old center today.
  11. Now TD 3. but not forecasted to become a TS. 000 WTNT43 KNHC 222032 TCDAT3 Tropical Depression Three Discussion Number 1 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL032019 500 PM EDT Mon Jul 22 2019 Deep convection has increased in association with the small low pressure area we have been monitoring near the Bahamas. Animation of visible satellite images and scatterometer data indicate that a closed low-level circulation formed today, and therefore advisories are being initiated on the system. Conventional surface observations along with the scatterometer measurements indicate that the maximum sustained winds in the cyclone are near 25 kt. The system is in a marginally favorable environment for strengthening, as a special 1800 UTC sounding taken by the National Weather Service Forecast Office here in Miami showed a layer of dry air near the 700 mb level. The global models do not intensify the system, and only a slight increase in strength appears likely. In 36 to 48 hours, the models indicate that this system will be absorbed by a frontal trough near the U.S. east coast. The initial motion estimate is northwestward or 305/11 kt. Over the next day or so, the tropical cyclone should move around the western periphery of a mid-level subtropical ridge, with the center of the depression expected to remain offshore of the Florida east coast and the southeastern United States until dissipation. The official track forecast follows a small consensus of the only models that were able to follow the center of the depression in the predicted fields.
