Sunshine returns....very windy today!

Above it today's edition of the Carolina Weather Video.

We have seen some gusty showers move through the region early this morning. However, in the Charlotte and Triad zones, the airmass never got unstable enough to support severe weather. Some severe storms are possible this morning near the coast, but sunshine is returning in the western and central Piedmont this morning.

It will be a very windy day with gusts of wind out of the west to 30 or 40mph at times. With fairly wet ground conditions, that could bring down some trees, and some sporadic power outages are therefore possible. Temps will be very pleasant with highs in the lower 70s for most.

Tomorrow still looks terrific with sunshine and highs in the lower 70s.

Clouds will increase Sunday with our next chance of rain and storms Sunday night into Monday morning.

Behind that system, a significant blast of cold air will overtake much of the eastern US. For our area, we might not get out of the 40s for highs Tuesday, and we will likely have some frost and freeze issues Tuesday through Thursday mornings. We will then see another chance of showers and maybe some storms Thursday night into Friday.

Everyone enjoy your weekend!


Unsettled today and tonight....freeze next week??

Above is today's edition of the Carolina Weather Video.

Showers and storms storms are spreading through South Carolina into the southern Piedmont this morning. We also have a frontal boundary draped right through the region. To the north of the front, temps are in the mid 5os with lows of fog. To the south of the front, temps are in the low to mid 60s with less fog.

That boundary will meander around the region today, and we will continue to have the chance of showers and some embedded thunderstorms. I can't rule out the possibility that one or two storms produce some small hail or gusty winds today and this evening. However, through this evening, the big severe weather threat will be to our west.

Today will probably be a big severe weather day for portions of Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, and northern Florida. Tornadoes, high winds, and large hail are all possible this those regions today and this evening.

For our area, it is still possible we could see some strong to severe storms late tonight. However, it will greatly depend on whether or not we can see some unstable air surge in here from the south. There is a pretty good chance that showers and storms near the Gulf coast could cut off the transport of moist, unstable air into the Carolinas. However, that is still a question mark at this point.

Sunshine returns tomorrow along with very breezy conditions and highs in the lower 70s. Saturday still looks picture-perfect with sunshine and highs in the low 70s.

Our next chance of showers and storms is still set for Sunday night.

It looks like we will see a very significant blast of cold air engulf much of the eastern US next week. There is a pretty good chance we will see frost and freeze issues Tuesday and/or Wednesday morning.

Whenever folks ask me about putting plants in the ground, I always recommend they hold off until after Easter...and sure enough, in the week leading up to Easter, we may very well have frost and freeze issues.

I am in the weather office this morning, so that means no labor for my wife as of right now. So we continue to patiently await our new arrival!


Showers this morning....severe weather ahead?

>> Wednesday, April 01, 2009

Above is today's edition of the Carolina Weather Video.

A cold front is dropping into our region this morning, and some shower chances will continue to accompany the front, especially this morning. A few rumbles of thunder are also possible, but I don't expect severe weather today. Highs will be in the 60s.

A brief Carolina wedge will set up later tonight into tomorrow. So expect a cloudy Thursday with chances for rain developing with time tomorrow. Highs will likely be in the upper 50s to lower 60s in the Piedmont.

A powerful storm system will really begin strengthening in Arkansas tomorrow. I expect a significant outbreak of severe weather in the Lower Mississippi Valley, Tennessee Valley, and Deep South tomorrow afternoon and evening.

Here in the Carolinas, that wedge boundary will retreat northward as a warm front tomorrow evening and night. As the storm system nears, the chance of severe weather will spread in from the west.

So, at this juncture, severe weather is a possibility, especially later tomorrow night into Friday morning. We will keep you updated on News 14 Carolina.

Saturday will be great with lots of sun and highs in the upper 60s to near 70. But clouds will in Sunday, and some showers will be possible as soon as later Sunday afternoon. Showers and storms look likely Sunday night into Monday, and again, severe weather might wind up being an issue.

Baby watch labor as of yet. Obviously, it could be any moment, or it might not be until next week. We will see!


Active storm track continues...

Above is today's edition of the Carolina Weather Video.

Clouds are rolling into the region today with highs in the 60s in advance of our next storm system. We remain in a very active storm track, and we will see three separate system roll through between now and Monday.

Rain chances will arrive after midnight tonight and be with us through at least tomorrow morning. A few rumbles of thunder are possible, but the severe weather threat tonight and tomorrow looks quite low.

For Thursday, a pop up shower or storm can't be ruled out, but overall a fairly quiet day around here looks on tap. Meanwhile, a big outbreak of severe weather looks possible later Thursday into Thursday evening in the Deep South and Tennessee Valley.

By later Thursday night into Friday morning, those shower and storm chances will roll in here. We will have to monitor for severe weather chances.

Saturday looks fantastic with lots of sun and highs in the lower 70s. We will probably be able to squeeze in a mainly dry Sunday before another round of showers and storms moves through Monday.

Still no baby as of this morning. However, my wife says the contractions are beginning to kick into gear, and she felt horrible all day yesterday. So, it is possible that we are getting close. We will see!


Beautiful Monday...

We remain on baby watch in the East household this morning. My wife' due date was yesterday, but no labor as of yet. So, I am at work this morning as per a usual Monday morning!

After the very breezy conditions yesterday, we will get to enjoy some nice weather today with lots of sunshine and highs mainly in the mid 60s. Get out and enjoy!

However, we remain in a very active storm track, and we will have three separate storm systems will through over the next seven days. Clouds will roll in tomorrow with highs in the 60s, then our next shot of rain begins later tomorrow night and lasts into Wednesday.

Thursday looks like a primarily dry day, but our next system then looks to roll in Thursday night and Friday. That one might produce some thunderstorms, so we will watch it closely.

Saturday looks like a fantastic day with lots of sun and highs in the 70s, but Sunday night into Monday, another chance of rain and storms will arrive.
