Joaquin continues to hit the central Bahamas very hard and will likely cause some catastrophic damage to some of those islands. You’ll also hear about incredible rainfall amounts across the Carolina’s. This isn’t part of Joaquin, but a rather a train […]

    Heavy rain Wednesday, but drier tomorrow and Friday

    There’s a lot of weather to write about this morning and I have to smile thinking about how difficult it was to do this blog during days and days of sunshine. Just a reminder, manually shut off your irrigation system, you can always flip it back on if it gets dry again. This morning we […]

    Nearly perfect first weekend of fall, but we do need rain

    I have a morning routine when it comes to the computer models. Depending on the time of year, I look at certain long range maps first, and then look at the more immediate forecast. The exception to this rule is if there is a snowstorm, then it’s right to the maps which will help me […]

    Cooler pattern, but still a profound lack of rain

    How many ways can I talk about dry air, sunshine and pleasant temperatures? That’s my challenge this morning. In reality, there isn’t much to say about the weather this week. We will experience plenty of sunshine, mixed at times with some clouds and a cooling trend during the latter half of the week will take […]

    Summer in September comes to an end after today

    The dry and very warm weather continues for one more day with temperatures reaching into the 80s. This September continues to on the extreme side of warm. While you might be enjoying the long summer, if we were in this pattern during June or July, we’d be sizzling in the upper 90s to century mark. […]
