Remnants of Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey devestated most of Eastern Texas over the last week. Now the remnants of it will be effecting our weather for the next couple of days. First I want to show you the forecast rain totals over the next 3 days by the Weather Prediction Center or WPC:

Notice, that central North Carolina is where the heaviest precipitation will likely be in our area. Also, based on all of the updated models I don’t see this changing too much tonight or tomorrow. This next graphic is forecast Radar Reflectivity for 3am Saturday morning. Looking like some strong storms will be possible along with heavy rain for Eastern Virginia and North Carolina.

I also wanted to show you the latest on Hurricane Irma, which is strengthening very quickly in the Eastern Atlantic. There is basically ZERO wind shear in front of Irma right now to hinder her strengthening as evidenced by this graphic:

And the Euro Ensembles are showing the possibility of a VERY BLEAK situation on the East Coast. But we’re still 10 days out so plenty can and likely will change! I hope all of you enjoyed my very first local forecast!
