Weather Events  

An ongoing reverence to the weather events that shape the daily lives of folks that live in Northeastern North Carolina.


Governor Pat McCrory briefed citizens from the State Emergency Operations Center Wednesday morning on the response to last night's snowfall across the state.
I would like everyone to think about what our First Responders have been through in the last 96 hours.
The immediate news is not so good. A Flood Watch basically indicates conditions are at a point that flooding could begin with the next heavy shower that comes into Beaufort County.
Weather at a glance for today and Saturday through Sunday: Hot (80 to 90 degrees); Humid (70% to 90%); Precipitation (Often); Amount (Varying 2 -3 inches).
Let's keep this simple! Tomorrow afternoon and evening (between 3:00pm through 11:00pm) severe thunderstorms, with damaging straight line winds in excess of 60mph, hail, torrential rain and large quantities of cloud to ground lightning are possible anywhere in Beaufort County.
Streets have standing water in all the normal places following a heavy early morning rainfall so please allow for delays in employees arriving for work this morning.
We just concluded a conversation with the NWS and we seem in agreement with the current NWS and NHC forecast models.
This is going to be primarily a rain and wind event which will progress quickly across Beaufort County starting Friday morning and Gone by Midnight Friday night.
We are under a Tropical Storm Warning at the present time. Do not overreact, but be aware it is going to be wet and windy later this afternoon and tomorrow.
