    It's been nice to have two September days in a row, since there wasn't a September. Pretty good temperature bust today... forecast was for a high of 72, topped out at 82.

    The wind direction has shifted, but it's pretty still for the moment. Picked up about 1.25" or so today. Lights are starting to flicker.

    From NHC: It should also be noted that an area of damaging wind gusts of up to 50 kt has developed around the northwest side of the circulation over central North Carolina and Virginia this afternoon. As a result, the gust factor has been increased in this advisory, as this area of strong winds will spread northward and eastward across portions of eastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina this evening and tonight.

    Reposting for FallsLake TS Michael will track NE of the forecast area over the next 6-9 hours, with a slowly waning influence. But until it exits, the band of strong to damaging N winds within convection on the immediate W side of the storm center, just ahead of the incoming cold front, will progress slowly E through central NC. We've seen numerous reports of wind gusts up to 35-45 kts already, and based on the latest trends (including 50-60 kts observed by the WFO Blacksburg radar at 1000-1500 ft AGL) and consistent high res model guidance, this will only get worse as it tracks east. With these intense winds and accompanying second round of rain, will maintain the tropical storm warning into the early evening.

    I'll make sure I tell the tornadoes to wait. @HenryMargusity 3m3 minutes ago Tornadoes for southeast Virginia this afternoon. Make sure the kids are safely out of school before they hit.

    NWS Raleigh‏Verified account @NWSRaleigh 4m4 minutes ago 715 am...Not surprisingly there will be a breeze around for much of the day and this evening but a period of much stronger wind gusts will move across central NC near and along the back side of Michael. Strongest gusts in the Triad b/t 12-5pm, and the Triangle b/t 3-8pm. #Michael

    NWS is slowly lowering our rain amounts. 2-3" and 2-3" is now 1-2", 1-2". Not unexpected, since they've been mentioning the heavy rain axis was shifting N&W of this area.

    FWTW, when you zoom in on the track, the circulation center is currently going to go through central NC just West of I 95, and 4 miles NW of me. http://ds.weatherflow.com/storm/michael#35.628,-78.415,13,8,84999,1
