Some Quick Notes...

>> Wednesday, November 21, 2007

  • Some showers will spread in overnight tonight. Then, I expect some scattered showers and possibly a few storms for our Thanksgiving.
  • A couple of storms could be locally strong to severe. We will watch it.
  • Much colder weather flows into the region Thanksgiving night. Snow showers will kick in up in the mountains Thursday night into Friday. Accumulations will generally be fairly light. In the Piedmont, highs will struggle to make it out of the 40s Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
  • Dry Friday and most of Saturday before more rain chances arrive Saturday night into Sunday. That rain could begin as a little sleet Saturday night, but that will not be a big deal.
  • Yet another system will move through Monday and Monday night, bringing us shower and thunderstorm chances.

Everyone have a great Thanksgiving! God bless....


Wednesday Post and Video

Today is the busiest travel day of the year, so I wanted to get a quick update online for you this morning. A storm system will move through the eastern U.S. over the next 36 hours causing a wide array of weather.

Showers and storms will break out in the Lower Mississippi Valley, Tennessee Valley, and Deep South this afternoon and push eastward into the southern Appalachians tonight. Up in the colder part of the storm system, snow will break out in parts of Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, northern Indiana, Wisconsin, and Michigan today and tonight. The heaviest snow will probably fall roughly from Chicago to Detroit this evening and tonight. So, if your travel plans take you to the states mentioned above, you can expect some travel delays.

Around here, we will see some showers and storms tomorrow as the cold front sweeps through. A few storms could be strong to severe, especially tomorrow afternoon from roughly I-85 eastward.

Behind the front, it gets much colder around here with highs probably only in the 40s in many spots Friday through Sunday.

The details are still unclear, but another storm system will develop and bring some rain back in here later Saturday into Sunday. If the precip gets in here early enough Saturday, it could begin as a bit of sleet, but that will not be a big deal. Finally, another storm system pulls through later Monday and Monday night bringing the chance for rain and storms. Active weather ahead....

Please note I had some software issues with composing the video this morning, so it will probably be a little difficult to see. I apologize for that.

Everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and safe travels if you are doing so!


Thanksgiving Week...

>> Sunday, November 18, 2007

Lots of folks will be doing some traveling as this week unfolds, and there will likely be a pretty significant storm system affecting the country mid-week.

As it stands now, it looks like an area of low pressure will form along a frontal boundary Wednesday evening near the Ozarks. From there, the low will lift northeast and probably spread some decent snows in parts of the Plains and Midwest.

For our area, we stay warm and dry through Wednesday with highs in the 70s and lots of sun. The cold front will swing through here Thanksgiving Day, and it is looking more and more likely that some thunderstorms could be involved in addition to some shower chances. We will watch that.

Behind the front, cooler weather returns Friday through the rest of the holiday weekend. It appears a weak system could form on the frontal boundary that will be off to our south later in the weekend. That could spread a little rain in here next weekend, but that system does not look like a major one right now.

Be sure and check out the video...I take you through each day this holiday week and discuss possible travel disruptions.
