    Florence Observations

    Still has a ways to go to hit the ~80K CFS mark from 1945, but it's still the second highest flow since the USGS gauge was installed in the 1930s. Currently at 61K and rising quickly. There are river flow records broken or soon to be broken all over NC this week. That 1945 flood, also resulting from a tropical system, was what ultimately led to the construction of B. Everett Jordan Lake in Moncure.

    Major Hurricane Florence: STORM MODE THREAD

    I'm no expert, but after living in WNC for a number of years and becoming familiar with the microclimates, I feel like an E/NE flow could lead to very high rainfall totals along the Brushy Mountain and South Mountain spurs (Yadkin and Catawba River Valleys).
