Question: If you are in an upstairs apartment and there is a tornado where do you go? — Naomi Crudup
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: If I fell in the water when it was 48 degrees, would I freeze? — Siena HIll
Question: Does the weather pressure cause you to have vertigo? — Karen Holder
Question: I have a bum knee, and have been told it will need replacing at some point. Have heard stories about one's being able to know of a coming weather change when one's arthritis acts up, but I have never fully embraced that "old wives tale". However, this morning (12/26) I awakened with my knee really 'barking'. As the day progressed, the barking got worse to the point I felt like I was in a Carol Burnett skit. Then, around 5P, I got up from my desk and was surprised to find that my knee was back to its 'normal' state. I figure that the pressure must have gone back up after the front passed Raleigh. Would you please let me know how low the pressure was with this weather system? Must admit, today's experience has changed my skepticism about "old wives tales". — Anne Stahel
Question: With this latest massive Midwest snowstorm and the classic "comma shape" of this huge low pressure system, I've often wondered on what exactly is going on at the center of circulation? Can it affect how you feel physically just from a low pressure standpoint and not the weather it generates all round it? — T. Sykes
Question: What time is Happy Hour at the Iso Bar? — George Newport
Question: I was interested in the fact that Sandy had the winds of a Category 1 storm, but the central pressure when it hit NY was that of a cat 4, yet the comparison was never made or mentioned, that I can remember. Do you think that this would have helped to drive home the potential of the storm to those who were only listening to Category 1; or does one not really have anything to do with the other. — Jes
Question: I have weather call. Will I get a reminder when I need to renew it? — Alice
