RE: ECU game weather
It might be better to use local news stations to gauge the weather. I find them better than other weather monitoring sites.

Rain. Potential for lots of rain with the remnants of Harvey in play for the mid-atlantic. With the late start, maybe we have a chance that it will have blown through by game time?

(Also mentions a cold start to Sept)

Yep. 50-50 flip of the coin at this point as to whether this game is played in clear or wet weather. Definitely something to keep an eye on as the week progresses. I plan to carry my rain gear for sure.

Actually had a weather guy explain it to me years ago. Yes, there's a pretty good chance that local weather reports will be the best. I confess, I had assumed the opposite. The short version is that these folks have training to sift through the noise, plus they're on the ground where they're making the prediction. We joke about just looking out the window, but that's the point. They CAN just look out the window. The Weather Channel people can't, at least the ones back in the studio, and absent a calamity they're all back in the studio. But the flip side is that the local folks don't have the clout not to report what they're getting from NWS when they think it's off. So, listen to those last little comments from the local folks, especially when it qualifies what they just talked about for 5 minutes. I had assumed this was just filling the time. Turns out, this is when a lot of them are telling you what they really think, and my observation has been that these qualifications tend to be pretty accurate.

Not that it matters much when the argument is over how close you're going to get to getting a year's worth of rain over a few days.

Good info. I'll keep that in mind when I listen to the local weather guys.

NWS has it as a 50% chance of showers and thunderstorms. That's more or less the norm for summer in eastern NC.

Looks like we'll have yellow out not a white out at the game, as in Gordon's fisherman yellow. #raingear

I mean wet ball and field plays right into our hands. I'm going to the game so I would prefer dry conditions, but again I believe the odds are in our favor if it's a wet one!

What the locals are saying are popup showers and thunderstorms. I agree with you that if we stand a chance of it being clear, it's because of the later start. Probably be a good idea to prepare to get at least a little wet.
