Wow! How about all that rain last night, folks? I'm still bailing out.

I am glad to see no rain chance after Thursday and hopefully the rain will come later Thursday night.As far as needing rain I got over a inch with the last round my pee gravel drive pure moves and shorts with all the moisture under it so thank god the rain is gone for now.As for the comments on wanting snow go live up north you must not own farm land like I do to have to put up with the idjets with four wheelers that think they can ride all over your property that makes me have to call the sheriffs department out or I go to them armed and pised off.

Just as I stated this morning, the upper air currents are not favorable for severe storms. Maybe one day they can get the forecast somewhat closer to reality. SSMH. I saw this last nite.

Here is a site with a webcam that shows COLD. Not your average cold, but VERY COLD!! It was 52 below zero here this morning, finally at noon it is up to 50 below. Hope ya'll will get some snow, even maybe by Christmas!!

That's because they changed the story once they realized their forecast was once again going to be incorrect.

We certainly need some rain, and lots of it.

"How come WRAL is the only local outlet saying anything about tornadoes?"
I don't see anything about tornadoes here.

Hate to shoot down everyone's dream, I'd like snow as much as anyone, but this winter's pattern is setting up just like last year...neutral NAO and PNA...nothing to push storms deep enough south to bring us much cold air

It will be Winter within 10 days. I think we have a chance!
TarheelFan126 Dec 17, 12:25 p.m.
dwade... that's only true for the Winter months and technically Winter doesn't start until the 21st. :(

The "Old folks" used to say that when it thundered in the winter, you will receive snow in 10 days. It thundered Saturday night, so expect snow on Dec 24th!

Nope, it only counts during the winter months, but I like the way you think!
emmykate921 Dec 17, 10:19 a.m.
Um... so in 10 days, we're getting SNOW?! :)

The upper level air flow is not conducive for the development of severe weather, let alone tornadoes. The pattern that set up in the lower Midwest and upper Deep South drained most of the energy required for said development. But, since there is a 2% possibility, WRAL will mention it anyway to scare folks into watching.
