    I have this sinking feeling that the I-85 corridor is going to be for a rough night and day tomorrow. There were never expected to be Tornado warnings as far west as ATL and that precipitation field is a lot farther west than I would of anticipated. Buckle down folks, it’s going to be a rough 24 hours. Stay safe! Snowgoose was definitely on point!

    He tends to lean conservative with his forecasts and it is typical for him to really digest all the new data before he changes his forecast. But yes, you read that right. GSP has a similar discussion as well. I am currently in a Warning, but much like RAH added Raleigh the warning, I am waiting for GSP to add Charlotte as well.

    Things certainly seem to be coming together for a widespread wind event for the I-85 corridor from ATL-RDU. I wish more of the local mets would at least mention this possibility. I LOVE Brad P. but he is still going with gusts to maybe 35 maybe 40. He just doesn't want to budge on his forecast.

    It's almost scary how much agreement there is with all the models. What's even scarier is the fact that people seem to be underprepared this go around. With Florence, people stalked up a week in advance. I feel like a lot of news outlets are downplaying the wind threat and that's going to catch a lot of people off guard. Even 45-55 will do some damage. I've already seen over an inch of rain and there is a lot more coming per radar. And that isn't from Michael. Trees will be coming down like crazy. Seeing how close CLT is to SC and the center, it's a bit worrisome. I would imagine this extends to RDU as well. Lot's of people are in the path of this storm.

    Jeez. I know the Euro wind maps can be unreliable, but this has me a little concerned. Looks like a CLT-RDU "inland special" This shows gusts to near 70mph. I'd imagine trees will be coming down left and right along with numerous outages.

    I'm curious to as to how strong winds will get for the Carolina's, especially along and east of I-85. Looks like you are going to get some pretty significant gusts as well. I'm in Union County, NC which is under a Tropical Storm Warning.

    GSP decided to pull the trigger an issued a rare Tropical Storm Warning for myself in Union as well as York County. Kinda surprised there is nothing for Charlotte or Raleigh, yet. Considering how close the center of Michael is going to be to both Metros is kind of surprising. Especially with 4-6+ inches of rain.

    Touche, I didn't catch all their wording. Should of read more before I spoke more, my bad. However, I am grateful for everyone and their insight on this storm.

    The new NHC forecast took a pretty significant jog east, considering most modeling has stayed pretty consistent, this is kind of surprising. Normally they adjust pretty conservatively. I still think Snowgoose's thinking of a more westerly track is foreseeable despite the NHC. We shall see. I am purely a novice, but this storm has me intrigued.

    Flash Flood Emergencies for Union and Mecklenburg County. Things are really bad down here in Union County. Roads closures everywhere.

    Florence Observations

    Rain and wind has picked up substantially in Union County, just southeast of Charlotte. Easily gusting to 40 with these outer most bands. .

    Hurricane Florence

    Brad is simply amazing. I have never seen a met who is as dedicated and explains weather as he does. Winds have definitely been a bit gustier than I would have anticipated by this time. I wouldn't be surprised to see gusts over 50 MPH, especially tomorrow as the storm moves closer. I got a feeling we will be seeing lots of trees down by Sunday evening. Given that Charlotte could be looking at 1,000-year rainfall event. GSP even bumped the totals to over 10 inches with isolated 15 in some places near and east of I-77.

    Hurricane Florence

    The NWS in GSP says 10-15 inches across the CLT metro. Either way that's a lot of rain. They seem to be going pretty conservative with winds though.

    I fixed my previous statement. I was a little wrong on that regard. Lol.

    I'm sorry, but can the mods not get involved and get some of these "wishcasters' relocated to the banter forum? It really muddies everything up and makes this board unreadable. It's a large storm that is beginning to weaken as she interacts with land. She may regain a little strength, but there is no model that has this storm continuing a NW path. It's going to wobble NW back to the W. And probably to the WSW or SW soon, based on current model projections.
