Looks like the season is getting started early this year w/ Subtropical Storm Alex. Only the 4th January tropical/subtropical storm since 1851 & first since 1978!

That awkward moment when the Hurricane pulls a left 90* and says, "nah, not even I want to go to Greenland".

I'm not good with geometry but would that really be 90* at that latitude?

I'm not trying to be a dick, its just an interesting notion that a small turn might look sharp on a flat map.

might see rain from it in a week or two, but probably not.

Right now is the prime time for them. Next 3-4 weeks and then its about done.

Yeah, seems like the GFS & Canadian models are on board. We'll see if that holds. Looks like the storm is moving through some upper level shear for now, so guessing it'll be slow to develop until it gets to the Leeward Islands.

Why is everyone so certain 99L is not going to hit Texas?

That said Im waiting for it to pull the coti or ctci track and hit Raleigh.

This shit is re-god damned-diculous. 2 years ago when I moved to Hawaii the big island was hit by a hurricane for the first time in 20+ years.

Now, I'm about to move back to the mainland and the week I'm trying to ship my dog to my parents and then fly back myself we're in the path of not one, but two hurricanes. I don't know if I'm going to be able to get out of here or if I'm going to end up waiting out storms again.

Fuck you weather, fuck you.

Track shifted west overnight. On a line to hit Wilmington from land, and if it shifts more will track right over Raleigh. If it does shift more west, will probably not remain a TS and will lose strength over land.

Wonder how much rain we realistically see here in Raleigh from this. I need a good few hours of some solid steady rain for my lawn.

yeah I'm not gonna drink at all. being hungover on a boat for 12 hours, especially in choppy waters sounds like my worst nightmare.

Track shifted again this afternoon now that they finally got a hurricane hunter in there (they didnt get any in yesterday for several reasons).

Predicted path right over Raleigh, at midday Saturday. So ncsuallday Might want to skip the beach trip.

Models are split on if its really is going to go over Raleigh, or still stay over Wilmington (as predicted this morning). Either way, this weekend is going to be a mess.

I wouldn't go off shore Saturday....

Here is the marine forecast....they are saying tropical storm conditions on Saturday....no way in hell I'd go out there
http://marine.weather.gov/MapClick.php?x=344&y=61&site=mhx&zmx=&zmy=&map_x=344&map_y=61#.V8dqL5grLIU

There is a good chance the captain of the charter will cancel the trip anyway, so you won't have to decide

Storm track has pushed back east, so Raleigh is all clear again.

Saw some models yesterday that have it hitting the ridge off the northeast coast and doing a loop and coming back and hitting the OBX as a hurricane from the northeast haha

Take Dramamine. This exact scenario happened to me back in July. Went out Friday night for bachelor party (didn't drink that much really) and had to be on the boat at 7 am. by 7:45 I was puking. I was miserable for the entire 9 hours. worst experience of my life. I had been out fishing before and I was fine. Take Dramamine.

^^ Possible. Ive not seen that but we had a TS hover over the OBX just before Floyd hit.

As erratic as this has been over last 36 hrs, I wouldnt trust any model for exact hit right now, other than its gonna hit NC somewhere on Saturday.

Raleigh seems to be near the breaking point for heavy rain versus good rain. Tracks a little more west we may have some flooding issues stays east and problems will be mostly south and east of us. Looked like the models had moved back east again this morning which would be a good thing for us here. We need the rain but the 1-3" type not the 10" type haha

Do y'all think we'd still be able to go Monday assuming we can get a charter?

haha yeah this is what I want to avoid. that sounds like a nightmare. I've heard plenty of horror stories - all revolving around bachelor parties. It's no biggie - I don't think any of us really plan on drinking for that reason but we are bringing dramamine even for the non-hangover related sea sickness.

honestly, I'm not sure why we don't just try to cancel the trip. it looks like we're going to be paying like $1800 to sit inside a beach house for a weekend during a major storm, and then if we can fish on Monday another $450 each to fish in what will probably still be really choppy water and then have to drive back to Raleigh right after.

welp, this rental agreement is iron clad. no getting out money back unless the place literally burns down. not even in a mandatory evacuation circumstance

May as well go have a hurricane drinking party then and just scrap the fishing plans. Looks to be strengthening definitely appears the hurricane streak for Florida is gonna come to an end tonight.
