    December 8-10, 2018 Winter Storm

    This might not be a bad thing. There's nothing worse than hearing the low hum and explosion of overloaded transformers during an ice storm!

    December 8-10, 2018 Winter Storm

    The problem with the FV3 totals is that the model is including sleet, and possibly freezing rain, in its totals. You're safer to take half of the total number and assume that will be the highest potential amount of snow. Then, you won't be overly disappointed.

    Southeast Sanitarium - A Place to Vent

    I've put on my running shoes so I can build up some speed before making my leap off the cliff. I want to be sure to be in front of the pack!

    December 8-10, 2018 Winter Storm

    If I'm reading this correctly, it appears that everything from Raleigh east is out of the game. Just cold rain.

    The real question is whether a rain event will coincide with the cold air dump. The Southeast usually has a problem getting both rain and cold air to come together at the same time.

    Winter 2018-2019 Speculation

    Does anyone want to venture what our ice potential this Winter? My guess is that it may be higher than what we've seen in the past five years.

    Winter 2018-2019 Speculation

    Since I just checked out this link, the Christmas snow idea is now officially jinxed.

    Mid to Long Term Discussion 2018

    How does winter 1995-1996 sound as an analog? This past summer has seemed to follow a pattern similar to the summer of 1995. But, again, it could be the early morning and lack of caffeine talking...

    Hurricane Michael

    Are there any early estimates of rainfall amounts along Michael's path? Parts of NC and SC are still pretty wet from Hurricane Florence!

    Major Hurricane Florence: STORM MODE THREAD

    Yes, it looks like the model wants the storm to travel against the gulf stream current.

    Hurricane Florence

    NHC as of the 2:00 PM advisor continues to have Florence coming into the Onslow Bay region, north of Wilmington, then turning more NW to W once inland. They have been pretty bullish about a NC coast hit.

    Cold rain near the Raleigh Fairgrounds. Some minor street ponding in low areas.

    Wake county schools appear to be running on a regular schedule. If this storm develops, they could close early.

    January 3-4 Storm Thread part II

    For what it's worth, I saw a ring around the moon this morning driving into work in Raleigh, NC. It's faint, but it is certainly there.

    January 3-4 Storm Thread part II

    Any measurable snowfall in the Triangle/RDU area is going to be a travel nightmare on the roads due to the very low overnight temperatures. Anything melting during the day will be black ice overnight and into the morning.
