    Just got out of the water, CB was a mad house already. Maybe we'll get lucky and this storm will blow some of the people back into quarantine.

    Yeah north Carolina is getting this all wrong. First it was unethical/borderline illegal to open beaches and close all public parking.

    Now opening limited parking via lots vs individual street parking spots seems poorly thought out.

    I'm seriously questioning the ability of a lot of the leadership in this country.

    Vote NCJohn in 2020!

    Southend was a zoo this morning by 7:00. Got wet at 5:30 and there was a line of ants heading to the water as soon as I got out.

    Special Tropical Weather Outlook
    NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
    210 PM EDT Fri May 15 2020

    For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

    Special Tropical Weather Outlook issued to discuss the potential
    for tropical or subtropical development near the northwest Bahamas.

    1. Satellite data and surface observations indicate that the trough of
    low pressure located over the Straits of Florida has generally
    changed little today. This system continues to produce
    a large area of disorganized shower activity and gusty winds
    across the Florida Keys, portions of southeast Florida, and
    the northwestern Bahamas. Gradual development of this system is
    still expected, and it will likely become a tropical or subtropical
    storm on Saturday when it is located near the northwestern Bahamas.
    Later in the weekend and early next week, the system is expected to
    move generally northeastward over the western Atlantic.

    Regardless of development, the disturbance will continue to bring
    heavy rainfall and wind gusts to tropical-storm-force across
    portions of the Florida Keys, southeast Florida and the Bahamas
    through Saturday. In addition, hazardous marine conditions are
    expected along the Florida east coast and in the Bahamas where Gale
    Warnings are in effect. Dangerous surf conditions and rip currents
    are possible along portions of the southeast U.S. coast this
    weekend and early next week. See products from your local weather
    office and High Seas Forecasts for more details. An Air Force
    Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the
    disturbance tomorrow morning, if necessary. The next Special
    Tropical Weather Outlook on this system will be issued by 9 PM EDT
    tonight, or earlier, if necessary.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...high...80 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.

    High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service can be
    found under AWIPS header NFDHSFAT1, WMO header FZNT01 KWBC, and
    available on the Web at ocean.weather.gov/shtml/NFDHSFAT1.shtml.

    Here’s my suggestion, if you don’t like what you are seeing at the beach,store,restaurant or whatever then stop turn around and either go home or someplace else. We all the opportunity to make educated choices. :)

    I respect your opinion :) and I don't want to hijack the thread and turn it into another Covid related thread bc ultimately I believe we are all human and doing the best we can in these crazy times. My post was only meant to be a comment about crowds but admittedly got off on a tangent so please ignore it.

    Especially when we should be getting excited about a potential early season tropical system!
    C'mon Arthur!
