Gotta run.. Current map. Looks like problems in the Carolinas near the coast. And we have a Hurricane Force gust report now

Light rain reaching Columbia now
Tornadoes still going on in NC.
I see a nasty fetch from the Atlantic feeding into NC just north of Wilmington

Hope you all are staying safe!

Somebody is making things up. Look for WCIV on Google and follow the live feed.

As of 1000 Eastern today, total rainfall in the Charleston Harbor station was under 6”. TOTAL.

Where's the rest of the hurricane? This is a half-a-cane. Pummeling land only.

The local Charleston weather dude, who actually has a clue about how coast hurricanes perform, says it's because it's pulling dry air in from both sides. He was right about Matthew, Florence, and now Dorian. https://abcnews4.com/watch

BTW, he's been extraordinarily correct about this storm while the gloom and doom crew continues to spout drama while being completely wrong. The eastern edge of a hurricane is the worst. The western edge is what is over Charleston. But you can't sell advertising that way.

Tornado on ground further inland in NC. Those bands are whipping in.

Flooding reports close to coast. 12" deep I saw 1 report.

Center of Hurricane is less than 70 miles off the coast.

2pm Update:

Hurricane Dorian Intermediate Advisory Number 49A
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL052019
200 PM EDT Thu Sep 05 2019

...EYE OF DORIAN JUST OFFSHORE OF CAPE ROMAIN SOUTH CAROLINA...


SUMMARY OF 200 PM EDT...1800 UTC...INFORMATION
----------------------------------------------
LOCATION...32.8N 78.9W
ABOUT 60 MI...95 KM S OF MYRTLE BEACH SOUTH CAROLINA
ABOUT 115 MI...185 KM SSW OF WILMINGTON NORTH CAROLINA
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...110 MPH...175 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT...NNE OR 25 DEGREES AT 8 MPH...13 KM/H
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...958 MB...28.29 INCHES


DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 200 PM EDT (1800 UTC), the center of Hurricane Dorian was located
near latitude 32.8 North, longitude 78.9 West. Dorian is moving
toward the north-northeast near 8 mph (13 km/h). A turn toward the
northeast is anticipated by tonight, and a northeastward motion at a
faster forward speed is forecast on Friday. On the forecast track,
the center of Dorian will continue to move close to the coast of
South Carolina this afternoon, and then move near or over the coast
of North Carolina tonight and Friday. The center should move to the
southeast of extreme southeastern New England Friday night and
Saturday morning, and approach Nova Scotia later on Saturday.

Reports from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate
that maximum sustained winds are near 110 mph (175 km/h) with higher
gusts. Slow weakening is expected during the next few days.
However, Dorian is expected to remain a powerful hurricane as the
center moves near the coasts of South and North Carolina.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km) from
the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 195
miles (315 km). The Weatherflow station at Winyah Bay, South
Carolina, recently reported sustained winds of 77 mph (124 km/h) and
a wind gust of 85 mph (137 km/h). A buoy operated by the Coastal
Ocean Research and Monitoring Program 15 miles northeast of the
entrance to Charleston Harbor recently reported a wind gust of
92 mph (148 km/h).

The minimum central pressure based on Hurricane Hunter aircraft and
buoy data is 958 mb (28.29 inches). NOAA buoy 41004 reported a
minimum pressure of 959.4 mb (28.33 inches) as the eye passed over
it.

I'd like to point out and remind everyone... Even though the center is 60 miles off shore and Hurricane force winds extend 60 miles from center. No station on land is reporting Hurricane force sustained winds. Either they are on the north side of the Cyclone OR just a few spots here and there.

Case in point..... For the worst winds you ALWAYS need to be near the center of the storm. If you aren't then don't worry about "the worst" of the winds when you hear about a hurricane. Not to say you cant get gusts or a Tornado, but don't have anxiety thinking the max winds are coming to get you. You have to be really close to the center.
