Some Fun Trivia…Easter Forecast

It’s hard to believe that so far this month that we haven’t hit 50 degrees one time and after looking at the long range trends, we may stay that way through the remainder of the month.  I was curious to know when the last time we went through March without at least a 50 degree […]

Myth proved wrong.

Just like bodies of water and rough terrain, many people believe tornadoes won’t hit large cities.  Well once again last Friday this myth was proved wrong as a preliminary estimate EF-2 tornado went right through the heart of Atlanta, one of the largest metropolitan areas in the country.  The tornado packing winds up to 130 […]

Fun article and Winter Weather Update…

Here we go, I bet you all didn’t see this one coming…now if you think back to November 2007, NOAA claimed that even though it was a La Nina winter that temperatures would still be above average and the warming trend continue.  Well, it looks like Mother Nature had a different plan, check out this […]

High pressure is moving into the area and that means pretty good weather for the area. Temps will be a little cooler than normal with highs in the 30s but there should be partly to mostly sunny skies so it will feel fairly nice. The next chance of messy weather will come on Monday and […]
