In typical fashion, the local weather gurus have absolutely NO IDEA what Tropical Storm Fay is going to do, or what effect it will have on us here in central North Carolina.

“Our next weather-maker is likely to be Fay” after drier days early this week, WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said. “Will it stall to the south, stall over us or swing over the mountains?”

A high-pressure area building into the South from north will determine what areas of the state receive rain and how much they get. Different models have the remnants of Fay moving through western North Carolina or stalling south of the state.

“The track of this storm is quiet uncertain, depending on what happens with this high-pressure system,” Gardner said. “The track looks kind of wacky.”
