Fantastic Wednesday weather unfolding...I love the crisp, cool mornings. We are not too far away from really wishing for those types of mornings again as we are in the grips of summer.

I don't know how other meteorologists and forecasts are, but I like to set personal little challenges out there for myself when it comes to forecasting. I like to be a bit of a maverick, try and find some little aspect of the upcoming forecast that others are not mentioning, and then ride that idea until forced not to. Sometimes I come up with a big wiff. Other times, I hit it. This morning was one of those times....we did indeed hit the upper 30s....I think it was mentioned here in this space last Wednesday and in every forecast I put out since then. I hate tooting my own horn, but I think the blog readers know I openly discuss when my forecast lands in a big, smoking heap.

*Some upgrades on taking place today on all of our weather computers across all markets today. For me, it actually means a very easy day of work. No on-air shift for me today, just simply some housecleaning items, and addressing any issues that arise with the upgrades. So far, all is going well, and we are on schedule to get all of the systems back up this afternoon.

*So, with that said, I have not made out a formal forecast today since I am not on-air this afternoon. However, the weather will be fantastic through Friday. Highs tomorrow will be well up into the 70s with lower 80s by Friday for most.

Our next front is still on tap to move through later Saturday and Saturday night. At this point, I think the best chance of showers and storms will be from later Saturday afternoon through Saturday evening. It looks close in terms of getting all of Saturday's round of the Wachovia in.
