Hot Tuesday...

>> Tuesday, June 02, 2009

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

A hot and steamy day today around the Carolinas with highs in the low 90s and a muggier airmass than what we saw yesterday. Some folks could even see mid 90s. The air quality is also deteriorating, and today is a Code Orange day in the Triad and Charlotte regions.

There is a small chance of a late day shower in the Piedmont, but the chance of rain today in any one spot is very small.

Tomorrow will still be fairly hot with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s and a chance of some isolated PM showers or storms.

We will see much better shower and storm chances Thursday as a front drops in here from the north. Highs will back down into the upper 70s to lower 80s as well. That front should be to our south Friday, but we will continue to have a chance of rain with highs in the 70s.

The weekend forecast is tricky. I have gone ahead and put in the chance of some scattered mainly afternoon showers and storms Saturday and Sunday, but how great that rain chance is remains a question.

As those of you that have read my blog know, I am a big sports fan. And there are few things in sports better than the Stanley Cup Playoffs. I have been a Red Wings fan for many years, so I am obviously enjoying the playoffs greatly again this year.... the Wings are up two games to none on the Penguins.

For people who like sports, but haven't necessarily been exposed a great deal to hockey, it is really sports in its purest form. You don't have a lot of the egos in play, guys give it every ounce of effort on every shift, and the amount of toughness and teamwork required for a hockey team to be elite is astounding. It really is a fluid, fast-moving, hard-hitting, beautiful game when played at a high level.

I encourage you to watch Game 3 tonight if you enjoy spots....

Enjoy the day, but stay cool!

I've been convinced in the past to watch hockey, but mostly when the Hurricanes are in the playoffs. I just can't get in to a sport where there's just not much scoring. It's like soccer, LOTS of action but no scoring. Maybe make the goal bigger????:)I saw too that NBC chose not to pick up some finals games next week....instead choosing to pick up it's regular scheduled programing? Ouch.

Scoring is fun, but to me, I love a good 1-0 or 2-1 hockey game...the intensity is really ratcheted up in those types of games.

Not sure about NBC's fact, I thought which network had which games of the finals (NBC or Versus) was determined in advance. However, I believe the ratings have been higher this year than previous years.

Matt, I wouldn't worry, the Wings never lose in the finals, they are unbelievabley good in the playoffs, so I see repeat champs in your future.
