  1. Meanwhile, the 6z GFS had 4 hurricanes develop in the EPAC over the next 10 days
  2. All the little towns that don't get much coverage when this happens https://twitter.com/walkyourcamera/status/1552708976134995969?s=20&t=IRDWn31TY4ZBjmpQrp1MAg
  3. Kinda surprised we didn't get a FFW here. 2"+ in an hour. Also winds gusting steadily in the 40-50 mph range for a while and constant thunder. Top shelf storm in my book. Fun without being too wild.
  4. The 12 hr 1000 year flood threshold is 9.5" and 24 hr is 11.1". Many locations are at or approaching those values.
  5. This morning's 12z sounding was quite toasty aloft. GSO recorded a daily record of 15,600 ft freezing level (previous record 15,460)
  6. I wonder if urban heat island is a significant contributing factor. The Triangle has had significant growth even in the past few years, since the last major heat wave.
  7. Meanwhile, GSO only reached 93 yesterday with similar dewpoints. A combination of elevation and cloud debris coming off the mountains has consistently kept high temps much more reasonable (and also at times set up a boundary for storm development) The data backs up my theory. The average high temp in June was 3.2 degrees higher at Raleigh than at GSO (90.0 & 86.8), compared to the historical average having a gap of 1 degree (86.1 & 85.1)
  8. It seems the drought regions of Eastern NC should finally get soaked. When it rains it pours: 3-5" for the coastal plain over the next 5 days
  9. The HWRF has Bonnie making landfall in Costa Rica as a TS. A TS or stronger has never made landfall in Costa Rica in the satellite era, looking at the NOAA database
  10. Yeah, thankfully the triad has been somewhat more fortunate in regards to rainfall this month, but it seems that a flash drought is perhaps underway. High temps and remarkably low RH, will dry out the soil quick, even here.
  11. It seems showers/cloud cover should keep temperatures in check today for the western Piedmont. I wouldn't be shocked if we struggled to reach 90. Friday may end up as the hottest day of the week.
  12. Someone is going to get pummeled (3"+) but more likely the western Piedmont/mountains and drought regions may be much more modest in the rain department.
  13. Should be the hottest day of the year, for a while, although heating up slower than the NWS forecast. Could be a contender for earliest hottest day of the year even (although I'm sure we'll probably hit mid-upper 90s again at some point) Also, it's kinda silly how when there's high cirrus clouds, it's just classified as overcast and the NWS page has an icon showing thick cloud cover.
