Dont worry about florence.

Check out http://spaghettimodels.com

I'd pay more attention to invest 92.

My gut feeling is that this year isn't the year of big storms in the Atlantic. I think it will be a relatively quiet year.

Now, granted, all it takes is one, but I'm not really worried this year.

God, I hope I'm not wrong

^what makes you say it shouldn't be a big year?



Aren't ocean temperatures on the Atlantic seaboard basically hitting record highs right now?
(not that there aren't a ton of other factors that affect hurricanes too.)

well this is the 8th year on record with zero named storms in the month of August, so it's obviously been a slow year so far

Saturday probably wont be bad. The time frame is Wed/Thur/Fri. By Saturday it should be a normal day. Although, depending on destruction, Shack might not be open to the public.

Ok, so predicting almost 2 feet of rain because the system will stall. Hwy 70 will be flooded, probably worse than Matthew

^^It's best to look at all the models and just watch the trends. Normally it falls somewhere in the middle of the GFS, UK, EURO, and CMC.

Right now it is trending for a near Wilmington hit. Of course, that could change based on many different factors, but for now, it's looking to go around there.

That put everyone just north of Wilmington (Onslow and Carteret County) in a really bad place. Similar to when Fran hit in 1996. Wilmington landfall, since the worst part of the storm (aside from the actual eyewall) is the upper right-hand quadrant, will put that quadrant right over us here in Carteret County.

One thing that is going to be good for us is the fact that it has been so dry the past couple of weeks (although there is a chance of rain the rest of the week), so the ground isn't already saturated with rain to help with trees being uprooted.

The scary thing, they are calling for it to stall right as soon as it makes landfall and calling for almost 2 feet of rain. That means there will be horrible flooding. That is about 12 inches more rain than many places received during Hurricane Matthew. There is a good chance that the roads to ENC will be cut off, which could cause a potential for resources not making it here.

Anyway, it's still 4 days out, and anything can change. As of right now though, it's important to stay alert and be prepared.

It's not looking good. No need to panic, whatever happens will happen. It's just important to be prepared and to stay alert. Have a plan in place and be aware of what is happening. Honestly, as much as hurricane parties are fun, they are really only fun during a max of cat 2 maybe a weaker cat 3. If things go bad, you're going to want to be sober.

While I have a stock of alcohol ready in case things are going well, I probably won't start drinking until the worst is over. Last thing I want is to be piss drunk and have to get out fast.

Be aware of where the 100 year and 500 year flood zones are, if you are in any of those in ENC, you need to be prepared for rising water.

When it hits, just sit back and enjoy the ride. It's going to be crazy weather that we haven't seen in our lifetimes. Last time a cat 4 storm hit NC was Hazel in the 50s. So if things are going as they are predicting, we're in for a wild ride.

I'm more worried about the older power infrastructure that hasn't been altered since Fran. North East Raleigh has power flashes in the most minor of summer and winter storms. Seriously debating hitting buy on a 3500-5000W generator on amazon right now while I can still get it here in time.

We have just basically prepared for a week long camping trip. I wish a generator was in our budget, one day it will be, but not this year. Instead were just gonna grill all the stuff in the freezer and use battery operated fans!

Maybe I'll get on the news again!

I love a good spoof at the expense of the local news.

Yeah, being a property owner in the line of a major storm changes your perspective quite a bit from a college student hoping for some wind, rain, canceled classes, and an excuse to get drunk.

Hurricane Florence is developing faster now. The eye is defined and it will help the storm get stronger. All the global models are tight between the NC/SC border and Hatteras. As of right now the hurricane force winds extend 25 miles out from the eye and tropical storm force winds extend 125 miles from the eye. This will only expand as the storm grows and gets stronger.
The storm is predicted to be a healthy category 4 hurricane at landfall with 140 mile winds. It is quickly growing. Went from 50 mph to 90 mph in no time at all.

This is real life. Barring any significant weather event, it's coming. It's going to be rough.
