  1. Hmmm, I wonder what happened in 1996?
  2. The 3k NAM is a bit overdone for inland locations I think. It is overamped and I think a track that far inland is an outlier. Right now, I think the 60-70 mph gusts will be contained to the US 17 corridor and eastward for NC. If anyone sees hurricane gusts, I think it's going to be directly along the coast. The ECMWF may have the track right, but those gusts maps have been 10-20% higher than verification for the majority of areas during recent storms the past couple of years.
  3. I like looking at current observational trends as much as the next guy, but not a single GFS or ECMWF ensemble shows this. While I am always leery of the models in a stalled tropical system scenario, the amount of agreement we have between all the reliable models makes me much more confident that we will see a northward movement tomorrow. I think the question going forward is whether we will see a landfall in the Carolinas. Models have been waffling back and forth by 10 miles or so with no clear trend either way.
  4. Just an FYI, based on my experience with tropical systems the past few years, these maps tend to be over done by 10-20% vs what ends up verifying.
  5. Finally got cold enough to get some decent snow here in southern Wake and I thought we might be able to squeak out an inch after all. But then radar returns completely fell apart just as it was getting going. Sun trying to peak out now Sent from my XT1635-01 using Tapatalk
  6. It's such a different landscape over a short distance on 401. Wake tech has pretty good snow and people sliding off that hill. Just a little slush near that sheetz and Bojangles and just wet by the food lion. Sent from my XT1635-01 using Tapatalk
  7. Mainly rain with some sleet mixed in in southern wake Sent from my XT1635-01 using Tapatalk
  8. Southern wake, mainly sleet and a little snow. 1.2 on the ground 1.5 on top of the car Sent from my XT1635-01 using Tapatalk
  9. Yea, I don't think that's legit. At least I really hope it isn't.
  10. Just wanted to let you know that those numbers might be inflated slightly. I think the power outage source either a) doesn't have the total number of customers correct or b) is wrongly assuming all Carteret-Craven Electric Coop is out of power which it is not. My parents live there and have CCEC and still have power.
  11. You are absolutely right, but wind speed is also a factor. None of the other factors have changed and so now with a decreased wind speed we are expecting less surge. And by less surge, I think the forecast only went down by about a foot, so we are really splitting hairs here.
  12. You mentioned the bad things, so I will point out a couple of good things regarding potential surge. 1) Storm is weakening and pushing less water 2) Looks like landfall will be around low or at least mid-tide tomorrow.
  13. Looks like after that reorganization of the eye that its drifting northwestward again.
  14. I can agree with this assessment. NHC still shows the movement as of the 1pm update NW at 10 mph.
  15. Just measured the satellite, it looks like its about 35 miles wide N-S.
