North Carolina Climate | Florence Revisited: Our Wettest Hurricane, Two Years Later

While we’re watching Hurricane Sally ever-so-slowly approaching the Gulf Coast, this reminder of Florence – already 2 years ago! --  may hit too close to home (and I apologize for opening any yet-to-heal wounds related to Florence!).

 

If you’re not familiar with the aperiodic blog posts from State Climate Office of NC , this is a timely introduction. You can sign up to receive their new blog posts via the form provided on their blog index: https://climate.ncsu.edu/climateblog.

 

Meanwhile… in the live action world, you may enjoy the outstanding briefings on active tropical systems in the Atlantic basin from TropicalTidbits.com. Don’t let the URL fool you – these are serious, informative video briefings about what’s behind the forecasts from the National Hurricane Center. Usually recorded and posted each evening an Atlantic storm is an active – or potential – threat to the SE US, it’s  a respected site for understanding the forecast. In addition, you can find the ensemble forecast tracks (spaghetti charts) and other storms’-related links.

 

Enjoy both of these great resources!
