Hurricane models still show alot of rain up here while the other models don't.

Curious to see who will be right

So I read that Michael maintained Cat 3 strength over central GA. That's pretty strong for being so far inland. I wonder how far inland a system maintained Cat 3 or greater strength? Has a Cat 5 ever moved inland and sustained that level for some time?? Interesting topic.

Storms tend to weaken pretty quickly after making landfall. Michael actually weakened at a pretty typical rate, but since we aren't accustomed to storms being so strong to begin with (this was the strongest landfalling hurricane in the lower 48 since Andrew in 1992) we also aren't accustomed to storms being so strong so far inland.

Western North Carolina and Virginia have Flood Warnings all over. There will be much attention on the coastal damage, but inland flooding may very well become one of the other major stories with this storm.

Michael seems to have gotten ahead of the front... seems like a slightly more northerly course, which could spell a bit more wind and rain for metro area?

The rain here is torrential. And it's moving in fast which means it will likely move out just as quickly.

Some of the pictures from Panama City & Mexico Beach, FL are devastating. Rivaling the damage that Andrew caused to Homestead, FL in 1992.

The odd thing was that my mom and I were saying the same thing.
