Thanks Alpha. Hadn’t seen those. I wonder what review-before-broadcast procedures have been put in place.01/28/2014 at 7:56 AM #38786FergusWolfParticipant
Alpha, that was special…01/28/2014 at 8:56 AM #38790LRMKeymaster
Geez, that was one of the greatest moments in NC State history.01/28/2014 at 10:53 AM #3879301/28/2014 at 10:59 AM #38794
Link to forecast map.
I see now I’m going to have to work on my forum posting skills.01/28/2014 at 11:04 AM #38796pakfanistanParticipant
I thought maybe you could embed the tweet. No such luck.01/28/2014 at 11:07 AM #38798bill.onthebeachParticipant
Who needs Greg Fishel… (although I did meet him one time and he’s a great guy… )
The Old ‘Bacca Farmer looks up at the sky and says…
No snow .. down here…
and unless something major changes… ain’t going to happen….
for now…. the cold air from the west is stronger than the moist air from the south….
it’s all about 30 miles offshore….#NCSU-North Carolina's #1 FOOTBALL school!01/28/2014 at 11:22 AM #38799
They are saying the snow should start in the Triangle around 4-7pm. It looks like it going to be a big mess for the coastal plain with all the ice.01/28/2014 at 12:31 PM #38812BJD95Keymaster
They keep delaying the start time for the snow. Definitely could have had school with an early release, damn it.01/28/2014 at 2:01 PM #38823TheAliasTrollParticipant
Blizzard on the way. In your face, Al Gore. In your face.01/28/2014 at 2:37 PM #38825BJD95Keymaster
Not to go all PoFlaWa, but isn’t climate change supposed to mean more extremes – ie, more numerous and more intense storms?
But hey man, like George Carlin says…I’m an entropy fan!01/28/2014 at 3:24 PM #38826pakfanistanParticipant
That’s liberal propaganda promoted by ecoterrorists.01/29/2014 at 1:34 PM #38852SqlWolfParticipant
That’s liberal propaganda promoted by ecoterrorists.
I’m no ecoterrorist. I like driving my gasoline sucking SUV and surfing the internet on coal fired electrons. However, if we want to understand and manage climate risks, it’s more practically relevant to understand the likelihood of the hazard than to ask whether any particular disaster was caused by global warming. This is taken from comments made by Noah Diffenbach, a professor of Environmental Earth System Science at Stanford. He along with other colleagues modeled climate systems that quantified the risks of damaging weather as a result of a rise in global average temperatures. This research does not point to specific storms or even potential patterns of weather events, rather it measures the statistical probability of economically damaging weather events over time as global temperatures rise. Based on this kind of science, I am inclined to believe that we can expect more intense storms (hurricanes, tornadoes) or weather consequences such as drought or floods that impact our national economy. These are not predictions of specific snowstorms like this one we’ve been chatting about. Remember, climate is a long term understanding of large systems and weather is a short term event affecting your locale.
