The Carolina’s Must Prepare For A Major Hurricane

Good morning bloggers,


How do the 40s sound?  Temperatures will be dropping into the 40s in many locations by Monday morning. Today looks like a great day and it is too bad the Chiefs are not in KC. They play in Los Angeles today, where the weather is quite often like our weather will be today.  It will warm into the 70s this afternoon with light winds.

A Major Hurricane will likely blast to near the North Carolina/South Carolina coast by Thursday.  There are three tropical storms in the Atlantic, and one hurricane in the Pacific.





So, the United States is about to be hit by two tropical systems in the next week.  Our weather will be calm in KC, so let’s track these significant events as they develop. The potential for a major disaster in the Carolina’s is increasing. Have a great Sunday.

    40s sound great! Hopefully this weather comes back after this coming week’s warm up. We are finally getting somewhat of an average September. The past few years, we have had at least one or two heat waves during September.

    I did end up turning on my heat last night.

    Actually, most of the predictions I’m seeing now are for it to hit the coast as a CAT 4

      Not good for the Carolinas if it hits.
      D.C. will hopefully escape severity. I have a nephew who lives there.
      Not sure but I think earlier in the week some expected it to turn north back out to sea ?

        North Carolina esp is used to hurricanes, but not good if it’s big one eh? My mom lives in Asheville, NC, but luckily that is on the far western side of the state. I heard about that loop de loop senario too. I don’t know if they are still thinking that is a realistic option anymore.

          Asheville far enough away from the coast. Plus its in the Blue Ridge mountains. Beautiful
          My niece lives in Ruffin NC. So, it is closer to coast, but still, hopefully far enough away.
          Power outages would be main concern depending on how far inland the winds/rain go, if it hits as CAT 3-4

    Saw this comment on facebook. True ?
    “For historical perspective, only four Category 4 landfalls on the East Coast north of Florida, going back to 1851. The farthest north being on the SC/NC border (Hazel)”

    Uh-oh. AR carted off the field. Leg folded like an accordian.
    Well, nobody here tonight, so just talking foo-ball 😬

    No 40’s on this app??????

    06z GFS shows the storm hitting NC as a 149 MPH Cat 4 and producing 53″ of rainfall along the coast as it stalls out. Wow.

    That being said, there is a system developing near Cancun that may steer northeast and impact the track of Florence?

      i thought the development near cancun is projected to hit the texas area?

    • Richard September 10, 2018 at 10:50 am - Reply

      On sports radio this morning Gary said the LRC says Florence will stall out and spin, spin, over NC, like Harvey did last year.
      Wonder how far inland it will go.

    No blog today?

      Our weather is going to be calm and beautiful all week.
      So, nothing really to blog about. Except hurricanes.

    Angry earth
    Report of Philippines M 5.2 earthquake minutes ago.

    Florence is CAT 4.
    The United States Navy has ordered warships and submarines at Naval Station Norfolk which is the largest naval base in the world to prepare to leave port as early as Monday as Hurricane Florence gets closer –

    5.2 not a very big earthquake…those happen all the time somewhere…not very impressive. The hurricane on the other hand….look out!!!!!

    Latest 12Z run for GFS has it staying off of Outer Banks doing a loop-d-loop before slamming into NC coast. Most of the rainfall stays out to sea in this run, but still quite a lot of rain further inland. The GFS has not been stable from run-to-run for timing and track.

    The EURO has been very stable on timing and track.
    It heads ashore near SC/NC border and slowly moves inland. Excessive rainfall in central to western SC/NC. NE Georgia, E Tennessee and western Virginia are also in play for flooding. That area is “mountainous”, in the Appalachians.

    Severe flooding, downed trees and electrical/communication lines are going to be a huge problem.

    Think Harvey of the East Coast. Will be interesting to see if the GFS/EURO solutions converge. If they do, I expect to see this start to happen tomorrow.

      Thanks for the info

      Looks like my niece and her family in Ruffin NC are in for a rough go.
      Her 2 sisters both live in W. Virginia. When it rains heavy no place for the water to go except into the gully roads and towns at bottom of those mountains.
      Heat Misers mom in Ashville might be safe.

      Any new info on the one in the Pacific ?

    Euro typically does a good job with hurricanes. It did exceptional with Sandy if I recall

    I’ll try and update latest on Hurricane Flo tomorrow, but my cat goes in for dental surgery. Still thinking it will be catastrophic flooding event. Three to four days.
