    Sure hope so. It's got to break (this pattern) sometime.

    My gosh, I'm forecasted to get all the way down to 65 Thursday night. I might have to pull out the coat.

    Sorry guys. I had to delete the video. Wasn't suppose to be for public consumption at this point.

    Hey guys here's some web maps my group put out over the weekend. Any GIS folks out there, please tell me of other map services if known. Look under Florence Support Maps and Apps: https://ncdot.maps.arcgis.com/home/index.html

    Been so busy with Florence, that I haven't been focused on the extended. Probably a good thing. The eastern ridge looks to continue it's dominance for at least the next 10 days. The GFS doesn't have a good cool down until the end of its run. We could be looking at the first part of October until ACs can be shut off.

    Just woke up and thought the radar on my page wasn't updated from last night. Crazy it hasn't changed much.

    Continuing to get moderate rain. Winds not that bad; which is good for power. I suspect it will pick up more overnight as we get into the NE quadrant of the storm. Man down in Raleigh they have had the rain. Radar has been impressive all day and into this evening.

    This is what you call a slow destruction. No quick storm that comes in does damage and then leaves. This has a storm that continues to rain with wind squalls; which then start to drop trees one by one. After some time you go from a few folks without power to many folks without power. Currently heavy rain / windy, with power fluctuations

    At work in Raleigh (Capital Blvd) and the power keeps breaking. It's been a long week for us (NCDOT/IT) preparing for this storm. So much work, I can't enjoy tracking the storm; which for us is half the fun.

    I would love to see that track. It loops it in a complete circle whereas on day 10 it's back on the SC coast. With cool air pushing southward it would then turn into a nor'easter and head up the coast. That would be some fun tracking..

    The sad thing is if you gave a geography quiz to random folks in N/S Carolina, most probably wouldn't know where Amsterdam is as well.....or Europe as a whole, or Canada...

    Thanks Burger! Somebody is going to get the storm, we're just trying to figure out who. Right now Wilmington is under the gun for winds/storm surge; along with at least the northern coast (Myrtle Beach) of SC. Then how the storm tracks will tell who gets in on the excessive flooding.

    So there was a slight shift north on some of the 6z model runs. One (FV3-GFS) now has the 6" QPF line into south Wake County. Point is I don't think there will be a radical move north, but a couple more small shift north can put many big urban areas back under the flooding threat. Something to monitor.

    It then pushes inland moving NW past Greenville and over the mountains past NE Tenn. Mountains would get good rains with this path.
