Weather Report - post your significant weather - past or present

Batten down the hatches, Jesse! So far, all of the computer models have Greenville just catching the outer bands of the storm with no heavy rains expected -- but one never knows for sure until the durn thing arrives.

Ditto from a Floridian who knows well what your are going through

14 years ago, we got hit in Florida by Hurricane Florence. I take that back, it wasn't Florence, it was Frances.

PS: plus Charlie, Jean, and Ivan in that same year. 😮

Basically going to be on the coast and will be making a South curve to Georgia,so if you live in the central part it will probably be winds and rain.

 

You can download the app "Windy" for your phone (If you find the European model,better,since it is more accurate..)

Well folks, still as of today no rain!

However,  we have been getting some wind and temperatures are dropping. This has been clearing the air from smoke but it's not 100% there yet.

Last couple of mornings temp has been at mid 40's, and the cars are covered with dew.

Could get 4-6 inches of rain today and tomorrow. Biggest threat is flash floods here in the mountains and trees falling due to the saturated earth on our hillsides. Hope the folks to my east survive the pummeling.

I am fine, did not even lose power (so far at least). The rivers are rising to record levels so we have to watch out for that the next several days. Rain is still coming down. SawdustDave is a county or 2 south of me. Has anyone heard from him? There might be no power there.

Still waiting for a good rain in our area.

Should be heading your way soon Per if it gets over the mountains. We have been having off and on rain for the last week and last night is rained pretty heavily almost all night long.

Mark is correct about me. Happily, we didn't get clobbered up here in WNC. Lost power briefly and my generator came on for a short time. We got anywhere from 1 to 5 inches of rain here in Henderson County. Flash flood watch here until midnight, but it may get removed early, since we only have a slightly higher than usual threat of thunderstorms today. Radar returns of the storm are a ways northeast of here this morning, up around Raleigh and heading north. The big threat now is the flooding rivers that crisscross the state. They won't crest for a while yet; probably tomorrow or Wednesday. That will slow down damage assessments, because authorities won't hazard their inspectors with flood threats still hanging over their heads. Storm victims will be testy, since the emergency shelters will revert back to prestorm use soon. There isn't a whole heck of a lot of temporary housing available out east. It's a lot of farms, forests and swamps near the sounds. We Tar Heels will have a tough time recovering from Florence.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
