Agreed.  So, humid here in Hickory this evening, but it wasn't earlier in the day.

Those Wind readings are VERY suspect, as in FALSE! We haven't had ANY *GUSTS* over 35 mph.. (exception for the Tornadic spin-ups).. Weather stations on the beach front haven't recorded anything over 23 mph..

With 2.23" rain in the past hour, Wilmington has now received 3.66" rain today. The daily rainfall record is 4.41", which was set in 1996.

Hmmm, I wonder what happened in 1996?

With 0.78" rain over the past 40 minutes, Wilmington's daily rainfall has reached 4.44". That surpasses the daily record of 4.41", which was set in 1996 as Hurricane Fran was moving toward landfall.

I thought Wilmington received 26" of rain with Florence last year?  I know that was over multiple days but I would have thought the daily record would have been shattered during Florence?

I think when people refer to the daily record, they probably mean the record on that day. Fran was hitting Wilmington on 9/5.

I know there are plenty of folks suffering, but for what its worth, the "good" parts of this storm are being felt well inland in the Triad.  Partly sunny with an awesome steady breeze.  This is roughly the same weather we get here every time a storm runs up the coast.  Just a beautiful early fall day.  81° and the breeze negates any humidity.
