About This Club

Club for the discussion of Weather in North Carolina for those that live within the State or just wish to participate.

  1. What's new in this club
  2. Thunderstorms out ahead of an approaching Cold Front will continue to impact the Western part of the State over the next few days. Although the threat for Severe Weather across the Western Carolina's looks minimal an isolated Severe Storm can't be fully ruled out. The biggest concern with these storms will be the heavy rainfall they produce. Not only will this lead to localized area's of flash flooding, but gusty winds with these storms on top of saturated soils could lead to downed trees around the area. Across the East, a disturbance located along the Southeast Coastline will continue to advance slowly toward the NE/NNE. As this happens, moisture from this disturbance will move into the eastern part of the state. A few Isolated Severe Thunderstorms aren't out of the question here either, but heavy torrential rainfall will be the primary concern.
  3. Right, and not many people are going to take off work or take their kids out of school to attend this.
  4. Of course they would hold this on a weekday when there is no possible way for me to attend ...
  5. Isolated Thunderstorms have developed across Western North Carolina this afternoon. None of these storms at the time have become severe in nature, but they are producing dangerous cloud to ground lightning and gusty winds. Even small hail cannot be ruled out with a few of these storms as they slowly push toward the NNE/NE. As these storms continue to track across the area, the potential is there for isolated Flash Flooding so person(s) out and about should monitor for flooded roadways. Remember if you come across a flooded roadway, keep in mind the NWS's motto, "Turn Around, Don't Drown". It is never worth risking your life trying to make it through a flooded roadway. Just simply turn around, take the extra time and go around the flooded area.
  6. The 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season is only (1) one month away, so are you prepared? If not, then now is the time to start getting prepared and Tropical Systems can be a force of destruction. Never wait until the last minute to put a plan in place, as those final moments can mean the difference between life and death. Have a plan to safeguard your home and have a plan to get you and your family out safely. Know your evacuation routes and the essentials that you will need in case you have to evacuate.
