Severe Weather Threat Late Wednesday

A strong storm system is expected to affect eastern Carolina on Wednesday, with the potential for severe weather.

Although we're about to head into December, severe weather could be in our near future. If the weather models remain consistent, we're going to have an area low pressure passing off to our west, which would leave us on the warm side of the system. If we're on the warm side of the system, that means we could be in the critical triple point area. This means we're south of the warm front, but east of the cold front. In this position, there is the greatest potential for severe weather. There's also the potential for a possible severe event happening at night, which makes it even more dangerous. Keep in mind this blog is being written on a Sunday evening, with the storm still a few days away. A lot of things could happen between now and then. The storm could track further west or east, which would affect the potential for severe weather. Whatever the case, it looks like we'll be seeing a soaking rain, perhaps in excess of 2 inches. Stay tuned!

    The rain is a torrential one here at this moment, with thunder and lightening. The roads from Kenansville to Warsaw are beginning to flood (24 hwy).

    That means a cold game for ECU Pirates on SAturday! Dress in layers if you are going to the game, I know I will.

    I really hope that it goes away! We are trying to get into our house before Christmas and we need the rain to stop so we can do it!!

    I have heard over the internet that the GFS model is hinting at a weak snow storm developing off our coast on Friday lasting into Saturday. Please be right!

    Do you expect isolated severe storms or a severe weather outbreak??
