Thursday Evening...

>> Thursday, January 24, 2008

Well, the overhaul of the blog is mostly complete. I will be making some further improvements here and there, and I want to know what you feel free to chime in!

On the right side column, you will fine some various weather images you might find useful. Below that are some links I often use in the forecasting process. Also in that ride-side column, you can see the latest videos I have composed....useful in case of insomnia.

Tonight is a cold one with lows dipping into the upper teens in many spots. So, bundle up in the morning, and be sure and bundle the kids up too!

Friday will be cold with many spots only in the upper 30s for highs in spite of a sunny sky.

Another storm system will cruise by this weekend, but I am just mentioning some clouds Friday night into Saturday and leaving the weekend forecast dry.

Temperatures will moderate through the weekend with some 50s gradually returning for highs. Our next cold front will swing through Tuesday. That system could wind up producing severe weather in the Tennessee Valley and Lower Mississippi Valley Monday into Tuesday, and I have mentioned some chance for storms here Tuesday. We shall see....

Further down the line, another system will approach Friday. The European model has, for several runs in a row, indicated the potential for some ice in western North Carolina with that system, and it looks like the GFS is gradually getting on-board as well.

Plenty of time to watch that one, and it is obviously still a long way off.

Hey mr. East. I have never responded to any of you blogs but read them frequently -- yes i'm a weather geek. I really like the way you have set up your blogger page. I am especially excited about the links you posted. By the way I am currently in college for Nursing, but Love the weather and have always wanted to be a meteorologist, however I have heard it is almost impossible to find a good job as one, is that true?

Thanks for stopping by and reading!

Yeah, my eventual goal is to make this a nice one-stop shop for lots of good Carolinas weather information.

To answer your question about meteorology, it really all depends on what branch of the field of meteorology you head in to. Like most professions, you will not make a lot of money at your first job, but the longer you stay in it, the more earning potential you have.

I love my job, and I couldn't imagine doing anything else. I am blessed to have a job I love doing, and I am very thankful for that opportunity.

If you have any specific questions, feel free to shoot them my way....
