    I’d say the FV3 may have done the best overall and the GFS was very good in the short term. It took it a little longer to catch on to the Wilmington landfall zone but once it did it stayed consistent with the idea like the Euro and never showed this crawling down to the GA/SC line like the Euro and EPS insisted on. I’ve been very impressed with the FV3 performance at least for tropical weather.

    Probably some strong winds with it too. It's pretty close to me now.

    I completely agree. I didn't buy into the hug the coast offshore all the way down to GA scenario (although I almost started to have my doubts after yesterday's 12z Euro). I thought a stall with a track along the NC/SC border would turn out to be the case. I'm going to bust a little north, probably. Anyway, the NHC did a good job.

    Not squat here in Holly Springs and I am fairly far south in Wake. Looks like this big band will miss to the southeast.

    Power gone. That band keeps breaking down right on the edge of Wake.

    Really strong radar signature for a tornado moving just north of Tarboro W at about 45+mph to Rocky Mount. Has gotten more defined over the past few minutes.

    Yep, I am little surprised I have received barely any rain with a Cat 1 hurricane rotting off ILM. But, hopefully tomorrow as it lifts north in NW SC we can get 1-2". I don't want 10" but a good soaking would be nice.

    That band between Goldsboro and Pikeville is super greasy. Ridiculous rainfall amounts in the last hour

    Edit: SW of Princeton now

    What part of P-town are you in. I'm on the NW side of Pittsboro. We've had wind but no rain.

    I'm back two minute walk from CCCC's Pittsboro campus, Oakwood Dr. Just lost power, I'm outside smoking a cigarette and getting sprinkled on.

    I imagine this band will be slowly pulled south with the storm?

    Which is unavoidable at this point, but I'm on a decent elevation and prepped since Saturday so now it's just a matter of grabbing the soap and running outside!

    I want to thank each and everyone of you btw. Aside from my love of weather and career/personal aspirations, just from the preparation aspect this board has been the single biggest asset for myself (and by proxy my family). I look forward to what the future brings wrt to this board and the vast wealth of information collected amongst you here.

    Confirmed due W movement by NHC, makes me think this might not go SW before turning NW.

    i would think so. Looking at the Radar Scope 1hr rainfall loop it’s pretty evident where the training has set up. With Florence moving so slow I wouldn’t expect much change any time soon. If you are experiecneing some heavy rain now, I wouldn’t count on that changing for a while
