    Only a couple sprinkles so far today...not enough to even wet the deck. Not surprisingly, per the last few AFDs, they've cut out 1"-2" overnight tonight in half.

    The last 2 mornings it dropped down to 34. It's 68 now, but sure doesn't feel like it with the low dew point (32)

    It's probably archived here somewhere. I remember Brick's kid's ball games getting rained out something like a gazillion times

    NWS Raleigh‏Verified account @NWSRaleigh 19m19 minutes ago Heavy rain is expected next week across the Carolinas. With rivers running high from prior rainfall, a few locations could see some minor river flooding. This is not expected to be a widespread flooding event but soggy conditions will prevail through much of next week. #ncwx

    Mesoscale Discussion 274 < Previous MD Mesoscale Discussion 0274 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0731 PM CDT Sun Apr 15 2018 Areas affected...Central VA...Central/Southeast NC...Northeast SC Concerning...Tornado Watch 53...54... Valid 160031Z - 160200Z The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 53, 54 continues. SUMMARY...Tornado threat continues across Tornado Watches 53 and 54. DISCUSSION...Organized convective line continues to progress eastward into central VA, central NC, and northeast SC. Strong low-level flow exists ahead of the line. Regional VAD profiles have recently sampled 0-1 km bulk shear around 40 to 50 kt and 0-1 km SRH from 300 to 500 m2 per s2. This type of kinematic environment remains supportive of embedded QLCS tornadoes as well as damaging wind gusts. Thermodynamic environment is a little less favorable but enough instability (i.e. MLCAPE greater than 500 J/kg per the latest mesoanalysis) exist to support continued progression of the convective line. The northern extent of the severe threat is constrained by the wedge front draped from eastern WV across north-central VA and into the southern Delmarva Peninsula. The southern extent of the threat extends to the northeast SC/southeast NC coast. ..Mosier.. 04/16/2018

    Mesoscale Discussion 268 < Previous MD Next MD > Mesoscale Discussion 0268 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0129 PM CDT Sun Apr 15 2018 Areas affected...portions of south-central VA...central NC into north-central SC Concerning...Severe potential...Watch likely Valid 151829Z - 152000Z Probability of Watch Issuance...80 percent SUMMARY...The severe threat will spread eastward into the NC/VA Piedmont vicinity this afternoon and evening. A threat of damaging wind and a few tornadoes will ensue as a line of convection across western NC/VA continues to track east-northeast across the region. A new tornado watch will be needed downstream of WW 52.
