Quiet weather until Friday...

>> Wednesday, March 05, 2008

An active area of showers and storms moved through the area yesterday afternoon and evening. Quite a few reports of wind damage came in from across the region, as you can see from the map above.

The mountains really received a tremendous amount of rain. Here is some video from my friends up at SkiNC of the Watauga River yesterday.

All is quiet today with lots of sun, and we will see a good deal of sun again tomorrow. Highs will be in the 60s both days.

Our next system will arrive Friday. There is still some uncertainty with exactly how that system will unfold, but there is the potential for another nice dose of rain for the Carolinas.

I also can't rule out a few flurries on the back side of the system later Saturday, but outside of the mountains, that does not look like a big deal right now.

Looks like the wave train of storm systems will remain active through mid-month, so we will have several storm system to watch over the next couple of weeks.

Glad to have you back in the saddle just in time for a bronc'in bull of a storm last night.
Interesting mention of possible flurries Sat....if the GFS and European are right, this is a possibility. My money is on the NAM which has the system a couple hundred miles west.
Just got over the flu, too. Nasty stuff. I caught mine in the waiting room of a hospital of all places - at least, I think that is where it happened. A LOT of people in there hacking, coughing, and sneezing.
From now on, I plan to check in with the receptionist, give them my cell number, and tell them to call me when ready. Sitting in a room with sick people is, well, sick!
