Evangeline Isabella East was born early Tuesday morning. She was 10 pounds and 22 inches long! Mom and baby are doing pretty well, and we are now getting settled in back at home.

I appreciate all of your prayers, thoughts, and kind words. They mean a ton to me.

I will be taking some time off of work for the next couple of weeks. However, I will be checking in here on the blog from time to time. So keep checking the blog if you like...I will post some items on my mind from time to time.

Also, keep tabs on the severe weather potential later tomorrow and tomorrow night. News 14 Carolina will keep you completely up to date.

God bless....


Change to colder weather...

>> Monday, April 06, 2009

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

We have a cold front sliding through our region this morning, and that front will continue to bring the chance of showers and some thunderstorms. A few storms could be strong to severe, especially the closer you get to the coast this morning.

This afternoon will be very breezy with winds out of the west gusting to 30 or 40mph. Highs will be in the mid 60s for most. Lows tonight will drop down into the mid to upper 30s in many spots.

Tomorrow will be quite chilly with highs in the upper 40s to near 50 and a blustery westerly wind.

Up in the mountains, upslope snows will kick in by this evening and last through tomorrow. Many spots will pick up accumulating snow, with some locations possibly picking up 4 to even 8 inches or more in isolated spots!

Here in the Piedmont, I think a light freeze is likely tomorrow night into Wednesday morning with lows in the upper 20s to lower 30s. So, growers will need to take precautions to protect their plants tomorrow night.

Milder weather will push back in later in the work week with highs back toward the 70s by Thursday.

Good Friday will likely feature some showers, but right now Easter Sunday look dry. It will be cool for sunrise services Sunday morning with morning lows likely well down into the 40s.


Quick Sunday morning hit...

Fantastic day will unfold today with highs in the 70s and some increasing clouds.

Our next system will sweep through late tonight into tomorrow morning. I expect we will see a band of showers and thunderstorms roll through during that time frame.

Our atmosphere it obviously quite stable right now, however we will have a nice southerly flow in here all day and evening, and dewpoints should at least be well up into the 50s by later tonight.

Both the NAM and GFS spit out some pretty decent instability values as the system approaches, enough so that I would certainly expect some thunderstorms around. And I will say that I cannot rule out a couple of strong to severe storms later tonight into tomorrow morning. We will watch it closely.

Much colder air will flow in here tomorrow, and we will enter the period of frost and freeze concerns beginning Tuesday morning. Hopefully wind will help us out some that morning, but that might not be the case by Wednesday morning. More on this later....

Time for cinnamon rolls and church.....
