We finally got some rain a little while ago. I guess the forecast was right after all. Kudo's team. We were issued a warning for our town, but it only rained and no thunder for a minute or two during that warning. We got a good shower with the last clouds though. Stay safe!

TOBYWILLIAMSON1973 - " It's the mixture that the DOT sprays on the road during winter to help with traction for the vehicles."
It changes the freeze point for water which should prevent freezing on the roadway.

"Thank you Toby. At least someone has some common sense around here."
Do you mean the kind of "common sense" that sees no rain falling at 12:30 and concludes that there will be no rain that day, even though the forecast called for rain later in the afternoon and evening? That kind of "common sense"?

I wish WRAL could eliminate these same people who bring no good discussion to the table. I think it is innappropriate for the "brine" crowd to continue to denigrate the weather stories. This could be serious. Even if the radar doesnt have storms, all it takes is 1 to pop up and be destructive, and that is exactly what we have today.

Strong winds and large hail possible.

For those who know not the definition of "brime". It's the mixture that the DOT sprays on the road during winter to help with traction for the vehicles. It is also used in various forms for soaking meat before cooking, and can be substituted for fertilizer, esp. on newly paved roads.

it's what the willfully ignorant call "brine", which is a mixture of salt and water. Here it's referenced in terms of treating roadways, but it's also used in cooking, such as when a turkey breast is brined prior to roasting.

Looks like everything is swinging to the north of NC. Oh well, what's another few weeks with the pile of brime sitting at the end of my driveway.
Folks, it might be a good time to consider conserving water as the non-events are going to begin piling up now.

So basically you have no idea what will happen between now and this evening.
