Question: Hello, I am doing research on the weather in Raleigh on December 7, 1984. — Lavern
Question: We're soon to enter tornado weather season in Eastern and Central North Carolina. Are there any statistics on the likelihood that one's home would be in a direct line for a direct hit? I'm relating this to the seemingly high improbability on a direct hit by lightning in any given area of activity. I don't mean to belittle anyone's trauma if they've ever experienced a tornado or lightning strike or cause people not to be cautious. But given the F-1 or lower categories of tornadoes which we normally see around here and their small area of coverage and their time on the ground, I was just curious about statistical probabilities? — T. Sykes
Question: I watch WRAL every morning and Elizabeth shows the record low, average and record high temperatures for the day. It would be great if the year was included for those records for us "trivia geeks." Thanks for the great job! — Roger Blanchard
Question: I live in Dunn NC. According to a website I found, we are rated pretty high on our risk for tornadoes. I was surprised also to learn that there is a term for NC now called 'Carolina Alley' which is like the term 'Tornado Alley'. Does this mean that the tornado threat has shifted more in our direction now than it use to be. This sort of freaks me out. — Shanta Chavis
Question: With this latest blizzard (Feb. 8) hitting the Northeast, weather watchers and forecasters are saying that two low pressure systems are "combining" which is a term new to me. I always thought most large scale weather patterns merely shifted the other out of the way by their movement along the jet stream. I'm not sure I'm asking the correct question, but I never thought these systems coalesced as is being implied. — Terry
