Here's how we did. A slight shift north allowed some warmer temperatures to keep our snow totals down. Unfortunately for you snow lovers we may not see much more snow for the rest of the season. We warm up into the 40's and 50's towards the end of next weekend and we're only 2 weeks out from the beginning of astronomical spring.

**WINTER STORM WARNING IN EFFECT THROUGH 7AM TOMORROW FOR THE ENTIRE AREA**

Models are in good alignment. We’re looking at around 6”-8”, with the bulk of the snow coming late evening tonight into early morning. Expect multiple school closings and delays tomorrow. One thing working in our favor is the higher March sun angle. Highs tomorrow will reach the upper 30’s to around 40° so paved surfaces will melt fairy quickly. Black ice could be an issue tomorrow night though as the snow that melts during the day will refreeze. Stay safe folks.

Well, since the storm moved out so quick, we actually have a pretty decent shot to see tonight's Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse. It'll be brutally cold out there with temperatures dropping through the teens so bundle up tight. Here's when to expect the different phases:

Penumbral Eclipse begins - 9:36:29 pm
Partial Eclipse begins - 10:33:54 pm
Full Eclipse begins - 11:41:17 pm
Maximum Eclipse - 12:12:14 am
Full Eclipse ends - 12:43:15 am
Partial Eclipse ends - 1:50:39 am
Penumbral Eclipse ends - 2:48:02 am

We’re at the tail end of the system. Temperatures will begin to plummet all day until we reach a Monday morning low of around 8°. Let’s really hope most of the precip that fell evaporates before we get down below freezing or black ice will be an issue tonight. Thankfully the entire system tracked north enough to keep us out of the worst icing. We warm back above freezing on Wednesday, as we’ll start on the warm side of another weather system. But we almost immediately dip back below freezing towards the end of the week with more snow chances.

01/18/2019

Who’s ready for a crippling ice storm followed by a flash freeze? Sunday’s high will be in the low 50’s...followed by a Monday morning low in the single digits. We’re talking a nearly 40° temperature drop once the front pushes through. Whatever sloppy precipitation we see will solidify, encasing everything in ice by Sunday night/ Monday morning. I’m sure we’ll see a slew of power outages so prepare accordingly.

*Side note* Situations like this with so many different variables in the type of precipitation expected are incredibly difficult to predict. Some locations may see a crippling ice storm, some may have a smoother transition with more rain mixing in, others could stay more snow. Look at the entire picture as a whole. We’re looking at a flat out mess. Period.

At the Kennedy Space Center media site to witness the launch of SpaceX CRS-16 resupply mission to the ISS!!! I’m as close as humans are allowed. Launching at 1:16pm. And we get to witness the booster landing 8 minutes later!!!

12/05/2018

I’m about to head back to NASA to witness my 5th rocket launch in person. Why is this important? As you all see firsthand, mankind is destroying itself, slowly but surely. NASA’s main goal is to further the betterment of humans, way into the distant future. I know of no other companies or organizations who work so tirelessly to make that happen. Even something we’re starting to take for granted like a basic ISS resupply mission, is all part of that plan. Mankind needs more positivity in working towards our survival and NASA is the one organization that brings that to light. I’ve met hundreds of NASA scientists over the years and the projects and science they do are awe inspiring. Every single one of them puts their heart and soul into every project, every science experiment, every mission. I am beyond blessed to have been selected to work with these people to get the word out about how important their jobs are, to show the world how cool science is and can be, and to show you all firsthand a behind the scenes experience of the inner workings of NASA and SpaceX. I’ve cried more this week than I have in the last 10 years. I can’t even believe I’ve been able to be part of something so special. The people at NASA are so amazing and work so hard for humankind. Every one of them is a hero. All the way down to the cashier in the gift shop or the janitor cleaning the restroom. Thank you NASA!!! Now let’s go to the ISS!!! 🚀😎🚀😎🚀😎🚀😎🚀

I’m so excited to announce that I’ve been selected to attend a special NASA launch event for the SpaceX CRS-16 Falcon 9 and Dragon launch December 4th at Cape Canaveral, Florida! I’ll be up close and personal at a mere 2 miles during launch and get a full tour of the facility. More details coming soon...I’m psyched!!! 🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀

11am EDT Florence update

There has been a change in the forecast track for Florence. As models evolve, we now see a strengthening of an upper level ridge pushing down from the Great Lakes that will nudge the very slow tracking storm westward and southward, likely just before landfall. Some models depict the storm to just hover off the coast for days, keeping populated coastal areas in the eyewall for a prolonged period of time. This new track scenario opens the door for tremendous storm surge to push farther south into South Carolina. The storm is now expected to get incredibly close to Myrtle Beach, though likely as a weakening category 1 hurricane.

Exact details aside, the storms wind field is growing with every eyewall replacement cycle, and even if the eye doesn’t directly cross your path, a prolonged period of hurricane force winds will envelop a large area of the coastline. A large swath of rainfall up to 2 feet is expected with localized heavier amounts. Storm surge on top of that equals total devastation at the coast. Inland areas will also see catastrophic flooding so you’re not out of the woods if you reside further inland.

Plenty of uncertainty still exists once the storm gets close to the coastline. Models for the last day or so bring the storm right up to around Wilmington, North Carolina, then it stalls for 24-36 hours before slowly drifting WSW towards Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. As it sits up against the shallow coastline, it will upwell cooler waters from below the ocean surface up to the surface. This will aid in weakening Florence, though it could be a slow process.

Everyone needs to heed all warnings and evacuation orders on this one, or you could be stranded for weeks. Emergency services will not be able to help you or get to you. All citizens near the NC/SC coastline GET OUT NOW WHILE YOU STILL CAN.

It’s important to note that it doesn’t matter at this point what category the storm is as it hits. It already has a wall of water trapped with it and that wall is coming in with the storm. No matter what we’re looking at feet of rain for many locations. As per the National Weather Service, this could be the “storm of a lifetime” for the Carolina coast.

Dire situation for the Carolinas...

Hurricane watches and storm surge watches have been issued from Edisto Beach, South Carolina up to the North Carolina/Virginia border. We’re looking at 12 foot+ surge for parts of coastal North Carolina on top of 15”-20” of rain with localized amounts greater than 3 feet.

The storm currently has maximum sustained winds of 130mph and is a category 4 with a central pressure of 950mb. Florence has undergone an eyewall replacement cycle and continues to struggle a bit to get further organized today, although some additional strengthening is likely over the next 24-36 hours.

Florence is expected to slow down as it approaches land. It’s slower speed and large eye coupled with relatively shallow water depth will induce upwelling of cooler waters to the surface, thus slightly weakening the storm before landfall. However, it will be a very gradual weakening and Florence has an expansive wind field, so it really doesn’t matter at this point if it weakens to a category 3. The core winds will die down fairly quickly after landfall, but the main concern at that point will be the tremendous amount of moisture the storm is carrying with it.

This is not a storm to be taken lightly and will likely go down in history as one of the worst storms to hit the US. Please keep the Carolinas in your thoughts and prayers. Utter destruction is imminent.
