I'm expecting somewhere around ~6" in South Charlotte. I'm a little scarred from Florence when we received about 7-10" and was placed under a Flash Flood Emergency due to horrible flooding. Hopefully this forecast busts!

Two things I’m noticing on the radar right now when you look at the whole SE. First of all, Sally is beginning to take on the classic look of an inland Gulf tropical cyclone with the shield of heavy rain to the north of the center. Second in the last several hours you can really see the showers start to develop along the wedge boundary in the SC midlands...as that boundary lifts northwest towards the eastern SC Upstate and SE NC Piedmont, it should be a focal point of at least moderate rain through much of the night.

Great read, but the last sentence was a bit of a letdown..

for this to be in more stable air, that’s some impressive rotation, tornado warnings to the south for the surface based stuff View attachment 48845View attachment 48846
Yeah, I have a sneaky suspicion that this thing is going to over perform as far as rainfall and severe weather is concerned. We may not to use that phrase during the winter, but I’m using today. Lol.

I think there could be a 6” total near the SC/NC border counties but likely going to be well west of Charlotte. I still think around 1” here and 2-4” south of here into Charlotte.

I know it's silly but isn't it possible for snow to fall inside a hurricane at 30000 ft or so?

A training band over Dorchester/Charleston County Lines earlier produced extremely heavy rainfalls ...

From 145pm to 3pm, I picked up 2.57" of rain... it was still thumping and was thumping for another 90 minutes (I had to leave for work).. just 1 mile east down the road all the way to Goose Creek, light rains lol...

Speaking of snow... I’m sure all snow lovers in northern GA, Upstate SC, and NC Piedmont and foothills would love to see a radar looking like this sometime this winter with about a 1038mb sitting over Pennsylvania with a good Northeast snowpack.View attachment 48849
Probably get that look 2-3 times this winter! Sleet in GSP S of 85, Sleet in Concord! 🤣

Where is he getting this from??? This doesn’t line up with any of the models that I’ve seen even the drier ones for that area, and it’s not even close to the WPC guidance.
Pretty sure its straight model output from some in-house model.
Ridiculous

Those in house models are always way too dry. I remember Brad P showing his in house model for Florence and just said flat out that it was wrong on amounts. I think for my place it was only showing 2-3 inches when the WPC guidance was 10-12... I ended up with 16.5.

Heavy rain moving onshore now North Carolina all around Wilmington headed for the piedmont. Rates over 2”. I could see two max areas for NC...one about 50 miles west of Charlotte from Sally mixing with the front and another about 75 miles east of Charlotte where the Atlantic is providing a pre-event. In the middle near Charlotte could be less but still a respectable 2-4”. Both east and west of there I expect some 6” or more totals.

Here’s what I’m thinking..two purple box areas could see 4 to 6”. In the yellow middle closer to 2-4”. North of there 1-3”. Just a rough outline..won’t be exact. Just for the Carolinas and Virginia. 3447523F-3A19-4FDB-9E12-A0F8C53311B4.jpeg

Well, we can kiss any threat of a Sept/Oct drought, goodbye! That will get us into low cape/high shear severe weather season in November. I don't know about you all, but I am happy to be entering fall with no drought. And what should be average fall temps. Couldn't ask for anything more!
