Yeah...Im seeing T-Storms and Heavy T-Storms on weather.com

I hope the game is not delayed at all. I have work at 5

I'm more concerned with my drive from SC. I'll sit in a monsoon to watch the Panthers, but I don't trust those fugers on a wet 85 south.

Well, they just said we might get lucky and the heavier weather later in the evening...hope I make it off I-85 onto I-40 before all that happens; 40 is no picnic certainly but I'll take it over 85 leaving Charlotte.

Not having food or shelter for your family or watching a family member suffer in Hospice is a hardship....watching highly paid guys running around in uniforms lose a game isn't one. For the sake of entertainment value and to give us all a nice warm glow, I hope the Panthers are successful and win. I for one try to keep this in perspective...win or lose life will go on.

Very true post. But the older I get I am starting to realize that people typically are without food or shelter for a reason. My mom runs an organization for homeless people... Some of them are the most worthless individuals (and ungrateful) I've eer met in my life. Lazy

Looking at the radar and how fast its moving it may be here for the game.

 

Looks like a monster storm

Click on the little future button at the bottom.

 

Looking like it'll start raining in the AM in Charlotte, transitioning to heavy T-storms around 12:30-1:30.

 

My only question is whether we get a lightning delay if it's terrible.

 

Edit: NWS forecast updated 1 hour ago

 

Showers and possibly a thunderstorm, mainly before 4pm, then showers and thunderstorms after 4pm. Patchy fog between 8am and 11am. High near 74. South southwest wind 16 to 18 mph, with gusts as high as 31 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.

Could be. I am really not interested in standing out there with a 6 foot long metal monopod in a thunderstorm.

TIming is key I suppose; everything is tightening up forecast wise. It's kinda funny how just a couple hours could make the difference between light rain and the JAX game like conditions.

 

Just don't get zapped out there Zod, somebody has to continue taking photos of topcats.
