  1. Was thinking that remaining in the mid 50s all day in Cherryville probably breaks the September lowest maximum of all time or has to be near the top.
  2. Never mind, found it. 963 at 1100 advisory.
  3. Does anyone know where you can find the latest central pressure? I have looked on the NHC Ian site and the 1100 update as well as weather channel but can't find one since 0800.
  4. My Wolfpack friends might want to pack the rain gear for Saturday night. Probably not a good tailgating game. Shame with Gameday in town and national TV for top 10 matchup. Looks really nasty.
  5. See some lows in the 50s showing up in the long range for the Piedmont.
  6. We had our 14th foggy morning in the month of August here in Cherryville. In anticipation of all the snow we are going to get this winter, I ordered this bad boy off Craig's List. A little ol lady in Jamaica had it for sale. She said it was barely used. Can't wait for it to get here. I will let you guys know how it works when we get our first snow in October.
  7. Pretty good early write up on upcoming winter. Seems reasonable to me if La Nina wains... https://www.wlfi.com/news/august-9-fall-winter-spring-2022-23-forecast-with-sneak-peek-regarding-thoughts-on-2023/article_93b83b22-1809-11ed-a2e6-0b4ed9cf3229.html
  8. Loving this pattern! Sometimes we get locked into these almost monsoon like August patterns in the SE. Rare, but looks like this may be one of those Augusts. Remember August of 1978 as one such August. On another note, looking like ENSO moves from La Nina to neutral in January. How quickly, if it happens at all, and its impacts on our winter weather prospects can't be known at this point. However, I'm thrilled to be moving out of La Nina!

  9. Everything I am reading states that La Nina will continue into the fall and early winter months. Not great news for winter storm lovers in the SE. More importantly, we do not need another dry winter/spring. There are some indications that it breaks after December. We shall see. https://www.severe-weather.eu/long-range-2/fall-season-2022-early-weather-forecast-united-states-europe-fa/
  10. After watching neighboring areas receive rain over the last few weeks while we were shut out in our part of the western piedmont, we finally cashed in the last couple of days. .4 Tuesday, 1.4 Wednesday, and 1.5 overnight in Cherryville and we needed every drop! Tuesday's storm also had high winds and intense lightening.
  11. 101 in Gastonia this afternoon. Charlotte hit 100 for the first time since 2015.
  12. Current temp at 54 headed down to low 40s. It was a great Mothers Day weather wise. As I mentioned in another post, yesterday marked the 30th anniversary of GSPs latest snowfall. I remember sitting at a red light on Woodruff Road in Greenville headed to work that morning when snow and sleet started hitting the windshield. I was thinking today that it snowed in 1992 only 8 weeks and 2 days before the 4th of July! Crazy when you think about it.
  13. 34 this morning in Cherryville. Oddly the winds were calm but there was no frost anywhere that I could see driving into work this morning. Shame we get these patterns now in the spring instead of Dec-Feb. Makes for cold beach and pool water when I make my annual pilgrimage to Myrtle Beach in mid- May. The flip side is these are some great golfing and riding days and the cold mornings are keeping the bugs at bay. Maybe we have a repeat on the 30th anniversary of the great snowstorm of May 1992. Remember sitting on Woodruff Road in Greenville May 7, 1992 with snow and sleet falling. Latest snow ever at GSP. Remember friends driving to Mt. Pisgah to see the 5' of snowfall that fell there. It stayed relatively cool all summer.
  14. Just got back from Tampa St Pete. Was much warmer and more humid there this past week but cool at night. We actually rode horses in the bay and water was tolerable.
  15. We may not see another area wide winter storm this season but the pattern over the next 2 weeks could very well produce a significant storm. This winter has defied many of the expectations from a typical Nina winter in the SE. It has certainly exceeded the last 2 winters in the SE. If we don’t get anything out of Mondays setup, there is another deep storm predicted to role over the Midwest at the end of next week that should drag a strong cold front south. This would be the next timeframe to watch.
