I am in Benton Illinois running in and out of occasional moderate to Heavy Rain. I'm going to go a little further south and anticipate hitting more. They definitely look like they're getting their fair share here

Hi folks. I am here at Family Arena and I have two tickets to Thunderhead and the person I was going to go with is not going. They are a rush tribute band. If any of you guys want to go let me know as soon as possible. I'm going to go in, in 10 minute. Ticket is free
I still have problems with zr stuff. All the parameters for advisory vs warning are linked to intensity of precip. We all know that antecedent and current temperature can play a huge role in severity when it comes to travel.

Latest discussion pretty much confirms what I thought. This will make landfall as a category 5 with at least 165 mi an hour sustained. You can only hope it hits the most lightly populated areas. It's still going to be at least a strong 4 the whole time it's over the island though. That's going to play hell on homes and infrastructure.
Latest recon VDM indicates Maria's pressure has fallen to about 916mb...still deepening!
I really don't see any way she's not going to be at least a moderate 5 when she hits Puerto Rico. What's to stop her? She's less than 12 hours from landfall and everything is pointing towards strengthening still. At 4 p.m. she was at 165 maximum sustained at 920mb. She has to be at least 170 mile an hour storm now

Just looking at some of the point forecasts along the Puerto Rico Coast. They have sustained winds in excess of 145 with gusts into the 185 range for some places. Then that's if Maria is just a 4 when she gets there.
gonefishin: Okay. I know these storms are no laughing matter, and I don't know if anyone has posted this, AND I know it's from the Weather Channel, which in and of itself causes it to lose some credibility, but this is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

MakeitRain: The 12z NAM wants to develop a line of storms through the metro around 1-2pm this afternoon. However, the HRRR is not picking up on this piece. I would not rule out the chance of severe weather as we head into the afternoon.

snowday_lover: I was thinking this was to start late tomorrow night...are we thinking earlier? I'm in Ironton, so I'm not holding my breath for much per the maps that have been drawn up. I'm thinking a little bit of sleet and frz drizzle. Is that correct? It's a balmy 18
