    Looks like the eye is closing up, not sure how this will affect its strength as it approaches the Carolinas.

    I’ve been watching from a distance for many years and it seems that either the models are becoming less reliable, the weather is becoming harder to predict, or my memory is getting worse.
  3. Tornado warning for Pitt County
  4. I’ll eat my own shoe if that happens!
  5. How is it looking for our area? No one here is even thinking about it and I have a feeling that some people will be caught off guard.
  6. I might be seeing things but it looks like she’s is either moving W or WSW.
  7. Is she still heading WNW or has she made the turn yet? It’s hard to tell from the IR with the eye being iffy and all.
  8. It’s going to be really bad for those people. I’ve just recently moved to Greenville but lived in Washington since I was 4. You also have some low income areas that are prone to flood. I have a feeling that those people are gonna be hit hard too.
  9. Given the new updates do you still feel that this is a possibility? Obviously feels have nothing to do with weather forecasting but something just doesn’t feel right about all of this.
  10. Thanks for the detailed response. I actually moved to Greenville this week so it seems I should be experiencing the same effects from this storm as you are. I have a love/hate relationship when it comes to tracking these storms, there is too much uncertainty in regards to how it will affect us. What are your opinions on the Euro vs GFS? I might be talking out my butt but I’m think it will likely lie somewhere in the middle. From the last few years it has seemed that the Euro has been more consistent in regards to forecasting storm tracks.
  11. With this forecasted to stall as it enters N.C. what will happen to the winds? How quickly will it lose intensity?
  12. This looks like a worst case scenario for Greenville, NC and Wilmington, NC. They are the two most populated cities in Eastern NC and filled with college students from all over that may not be familiar with how dangerous Hurricanes can be. I seriously hope something changes in these next few days. This could turn out to be really bad considering most of the college kids in Greenville live in areas that are very prone to flooding.
  13. Got slammed pretty hard in Greenville with heavy rains and winds 40+ mph.
  14. There is a storm to my west and the lightning is pretty impressive. I don’t think the thunder in the distance has stopped in the last night 10 minutes.
  15. That’s good to hear. I usually try to watch what you say when it comes to situations like these because there are very few people in this area and you seem to know what you are talking about. Earlier you were saying that warm air was something we wouldn’t have to worry about so I was just concerned that something had popped up.
  16. Clever lol. I wasn’t sure what was holding us back because he had been saying that warm air wouldn’t be an issue in our area.
  17. I’m still getting sleet here in Washington. Very jealous of those flakes you are getting. Do you know what’s keeping us from switching?
  18. Thank you. My local news stations have been pretty quiet about this storm and kind of downplaying it and I’m trying to learn here but a lot of the more complex stuff just goes over my head.
  19. There is obviously a lot of bias for Raleigh here because a lot of members are from there but could anyone here update me what the coast is looking like? Have expected snow totals stayed the same, increased or decreased?
  20. I’m starting to be concerned about power outages in Eastern NC. 5-8 inches of snow with up to quarter inch of ice and winds up to 25 mph. We aren’t really prepared for conditions like this. Thankfully I have a generator but I’m concerned for people who don’t have that luxury.
  21. Being that you live pretty close to me what do you think thabout chances are of this being mostly sleet or freezing rain in Washington. I know now that the models are showing that we are going to get the precip we need but that isn’t the whole story. I’ve seen it happen before but I have limited knowledge when it comes down to this sort of thing.
