Carolinas Weather

#1 Postby FireRat » Sun Sep 09, 2018 8:10 pm

Hi everyone, I figured this might be a great time to start a thread dedicated to the weather of South and North Carolina, especially now as we watch Hurricane Florence very closely! I'm in the central NC triangle region and looks like we're going to get tons of rain and wind from Florence if the current forecasts are correct. Those of you in the eastern Carolinas should be prepping now, this could be a big one!

Strange to see this coming and we just had the first cool weather day in a long time, the day was overcast and it's only 69 degrees at the moment in Chapel Hill. Going to be an extremely interesting weather week around these parts folks.

If nothing else, this storm may balance out the droughts we've had.

For real, we might witness one of the hugest rain events in the country's history, right up there with Harvey! Some models over in the hurricane threads for Florence call for 40+ inches of rain across many parts of the state, just unreal. After such a dry 2016 and 2017, we did have a drought especially Fall '16. This year's been quite wet and now might be the wettest ever if the Florence forecast pans out.

Can you guys believe it, major hurricane now predicted to come ashore or near the NC coast and then parallel BOTH North and South Carolina coastlines as it moves southwest, so basically in reverse to the norm?!! This is madness! :double:

This warm pattern is getting old. I'm ready for some cooler weather once Florence is out of the picture!

I remember the prediction calling for that before, then smacking right into the entirety of the OBX. Now it's back to Wilmington/Myrtle Beach area, then it'll hang around my neck of the woods. I guess Florence wants to grab an honorary degree from FMU when she passes through. Bleh. :cry:

I'm ready for Fall too y'all :)

Looks like Flo really hit Wilmington and Myrtle Beach hard as forecast, and there are some incredible rainfall totals that continue adding up in nearby areas! Check out the rainfall totals as of Friday evening:

Hope you guys are faring OK during this event. Here in the Triangle we ended up getting a few heavy rainbands late Friday afternoon and evening with gusty winds. Gonna be a wet few days ahead!

Watching soon to be Hurricane Michael down in the Caribbean, he's forecast to strike the north gulf coast of Florida and potentially com this way as a weakening tropical storm...not good news at all after what many of us dealt with Florence! Looks like a stormy week coming up followed by much more Fall-like weather come around 10/13.

Michael is not to be underestimated, this storm will likely impact the Carolinas with wind and water around 10/10 to 10/12. Watch this storm closely fellow Carolineans.
