Got your attention ......Well it may happen (even if it isn't named) as a major storm will form off the SE coast during the next 24-36 hrs and entrain a tropical wave down off Panama. If the tropical system consolidates, it is more likely to dumbell around the eastern side of the coastal storm...... while if it remains unorganized...................it's tropical heat energy is likely to be entrained in the coastal with a worst case scenario of 30 ft seas and hurricane force wind gusts to batter the Carolinas as it creeps Northward. Either way, don't plan any beach outings in Florida this week..................it's gonna be January like....

Storm is entraining heat energy from tropics as feared and question now is how much feedback will occur? 3o ft seas and hurricane force wind gusts from NC to DE now VERY POSSIBLE as winds already 60 mph with 19 ft seas just offshore.....................By the way, Charleston, SC saw it's earliest recorded SNOW this morning as temps hovered in the 30's all day.

This is from the Virginian Pilot Newspaper....................
The wind and rain pounded the Outer Banks all night, then it just stopped.
Not long after daybreak Wednesday, emergency workers and a few sightseers were taking in what the two-day coastal weather system had left behind.
A state trooper guarded the north foot of the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge, turning back motorists from Hatteras Island. In at least two spots, high water and sand blocked N.C 12, the only route south.
Visitors were evacuated from rental houses on Hatteras Island. In Rodanthe, where water on the road was 1-1/2 feet deep, occupants from 13 of Midgett Realty's rental houses were evacuated, said Anthony Fletcher, general manager for rentals. Other real estate companies also helped visitors to houses in safer areas or to temporary shelter at a fire station.
Travel to and from Hatteras Island was expected to remain restricted until overwash and piled-up sand on N.C. 12 is cleared, Dare County Emergency Management Director Sandy Sanderson said.
Power outages were reported throughout the Outer Banks. A transmission line that went down on Colington Island was expected to keep power out on Hatteras Island until Wednesday evening. A state of emergency was declared on Ocracoke Island so that officials could limit access for the cleanup, and the main power was out. Streets were flooded in Elizabeth City.
The highest gust reported was about 115 mph, recorded sometime during the night at Dare County Regional Airport, said airport line technician Carrie Broad- dus. The weather service reported a gust of 82 mph at about 6:30 a.m. on the Alligator River bridge between Dare and Tyrrell counties

Cool pics! I'm sure glad we don't get noreasters down here! With 115mph winds that sure is going to cause a bunch of damage. Seems like a lot of the roads were flooded and sand had built up on them. Now that has to be a mess! _________________ Chris
