  1. Good point, although you can see how even at slow speeds, it will traverse cooler water relatively quickly
  2. Quite warm SSTs. Also at the time of year when water temp is warmest. I also feel like climo favors later in the year with more of a subtropical transition. I still think a direct impact is less than 20% right now
  3. Looking on the NOAA database at storms within 100 miles of it's current position, there are hardly any that made east coast landfalls. The only ones that did, north of Florida were 1933 hurricane (the strongest one) Ginger (1971) Hermine (2004) (probably the only one that could be a plausible track)
  4. I was thinking the same, looking at radar. I'm wondering if once it started moving NW, it was more exposed to shear. Should be back to due north pretty soon
  5. Seems to have jogged to the west over the past hour or so
  6. In the same region that got smashed by cat 4 Matthew too
  7. They don't think it be like it is, but it do. I feel like the HWRF actually had zero use other than for mature systems
  8. Looks like the kind of storm that could quickly form a tight core and consolidate after come back over water
  9. Good thing the weather's calm...what a massive radar hole
  10. Nws putting changed into effect on how severe thunderstorm warnings are communicated
  11. Yeah, moderate as a 4/5 on the scale makes no sense. Moderate has always been a significant severe threat, despite the connotation of the word, and even when they only had three categories was probably a poor choice for communicating threat level to the public. So when they forced in a category between slight and moderate they had to choose something that meant "relatively significant", which sounds more severe than "moderate". But in a perfect world this would make more sense: Minimal (green) Slight (yellow) Moderate (orange) High (red) Extreme (magenta) In reality this would be super confusing to everyone to make a switch, so I kinda feel like they should just refer to the color or number as a threat level.
  12. First severe threat In a while, primarily for hail
  13. No mention yet of smoke in the RAH disco yet. Should be impacting our area most Wed-Friday. Mostly high level smoke but probably some impact to air quality/visibility.
  14. At GSO airport the total for the month has risen to 5.19", with 2.96" coming over the past three days. This puts us ahead of average by about 4" on the year, well on our way to yet another wetter than normal year. At this time in 2018 (the year of the all time rainfall record), Greensboro was actually slightly below normal rainfall.
  15. Same here pretty much, on the edge of the good stuff, but it added up. The plus side is it gives the ground time to soak it all up.
  16. I think just a bit of unforecasted shear did the trick. But for now, it's stayed just east of me. Surprise surprise
  17. Yeah, I've never seen the totality, so I'll do what it takes to see it in 2024. Last chance in a long time
  18. Since the weather is as boring as can be, here's a fascinating article about cloud cover climatology for the 2024 eclipse: https://eclipsophile.com/2024tse/
  19. They did a good job, choosing the east side of guidance. Consensus of the models was for about 2-2.5"
