  1. While recon shows the center fixes bending left, my educated guess is the half-a-eyewall is bouncing around a broader maxima based on microwave and will likely continue to wobble wnw-nw until late this evening. It does appear though the slow down has begun per satellite.
  2. Based on microwave, structure is taking its final shape before direct impacts are felt along the coast. Another ERC is pretty clear at this point unless I am missing something.
  3. Still waiting for Albany to update but based on SFWMD 0z are now well off the SC coast.
  4. National Weather Service Office in Raleigh and Morehead City.
  5. Real deal Floyd Irene sandwich if this lines up, we are well inside the cone. If I was in a position to inform the general public RAH/MHX would be my message based on the data I have access to, as opposed to subjective views from WRAL or WITN.
  6. Upwelling, dry air entrainment from nearby land, increased sheer, there’s several mechanisms at play.
  7. GEFS would indicate a stall. I agree, it should not happen, same as us not feeling direct impacts from a storm given the current position. We are just clearing Bermuda to the south, still need to be real at this early stage.
  8. The odds of steering currents breaking down is real, it’s just a matter of where at this point, it could be western NC, central VA or offshore (still very much on the table, climo supports). The Euro gives pause but the trend over the past 24 hours is east, no doubt.
  9. All depends on where you are at with respect to the right front, I studied that area north off ILM through Lookout, Topsail in particular, one of the most active sandbars on the east coast, I would be inland.
  10. I am likely in the market for a generator tomorrow too. Point of clarification on the above post and based on local media, Carteret is just maditory on the barrier islands starting in the AM. Tomorrow is the action day for the coast, Wednesday would be for prone interior. Indland counties will likely put out voluntaries as Beaufort is already doing
  11. Position error at this range is still 100-150 miles, that’s absolute position as opposed to east - west, everywhere from MYR to HAT and even offshore is still within the track error. Still a ways to go and ala Irma, Florence has by no means drawn her final card.
  12. Op Euro and GFS blend would be pretty close to a worst case scenario, I do like the FV3, which is pretty lock step with the Euro. At this stage I would toss the ensembles within reason, still a tool but not something I would weight a landfall forecast on. The TAB is a great tool and as long as it shows those steering currents break down ivo landfall, the comfidence it will slow down greatly is high, along with any late stage change in course.
  13. I’ll be honest, at this point I am more stressed and concerned than excited. Don’t get me wrong, I like a good sustained wind about as much as anyone, just as long as it’s not on my house. The real worry and I think at this point my house is ok, is the potential stall and biblical amounts of rain. That’s a worst case scenario for emergency management, two disasters to deal with as opposed to one. It would take 3-7 days for rain to empty into the sound, its not a fast process by any stretch and will greatly hamper reocervey efforts from the immediate storm.
  14. Umm... May need to update that link. Florence is a go for main engine “re-start” and booster ignition, RI looks likely starting tonight and perhaps continuing to Monday.
  15. Still stuck on climo unless someone can show me a prob map with >10% EC hit based on her current position.
  16. I would have to go back to Irene which set some records for inner banks surge, eclipsing Fran, but 7-10’ with locally higher.
  17. 12z UK came north, landfall around the NC/SC border. Two camps at this point, foreign vs domestic.
  18. 55 @PGV this AM but not really a mid - long range topic, sure fealt nice though.
  19. Both the RGEM and GGEM are nuisance type SN events for NW NC and SW VA but with major icing down the spine of the Apps in W NC. I am kicking around the idea of heading to SW VA in the early AM for a quick overnight chase, Copper Hill - Wytheville area with some elevation but I have pause given the guidance. 8-12" would be a successful chase but I don't have a warm and fuzzy.
  20. Can you link the source on this, I am having trouble finding it? Thanks!
  21. Sh!t just got real when HM showed up in the MA.
  22. 32.5/31 and ripping fatties out, silver dollars and not the soaked kind either, everything has a coating at this point including the road. Hate being dependent on a change over but this one worked out. Wonder if we will mix back to IP after this heavy stuff works through.
  23. I know it is a melting layer but damn does radar scope look slick just to my west as it changed to blue. I am 80/20 SN/IP, just flipped in the last few minutes, pingers went mostly silent. Mulch is already white.
  24. 18z NAM reminds me of that 1/17/18 18z run, jacked with no chance of verifying here. Still pretty to look at.
