WEATHER BLOG: Surreal Day
Hi, everyone, and welcome to my weather blog.
What a surreal day Wednesday was for us in Studio A. Don and I arrived Tuesday night (to spend the night), so as to be able to be on the air at 4:30 a.m. (Sleeping in the audio booth with feet propped up on the desk was wonderful said no one ever.) But the threat of a glaze over and giant travel problems existed. So we decided to err on the side of common sense.
On air we are in a windowless room. We see the storm only on TVs watching what you do. You, though, have windows to look at it from. So when we leave and get our first glimpse of reality…WOW what a shocker that was! Driving home all I could think was, “Man, did we luck out!” And did we ever.
When the afternoon “thaw” hit, the second rain started…a rain of melting ice and ice itself. The sound alone was surreal.
Thursday and Friday CALM and no problems. Sun and some clouds with temps in the mid 30s.
Now about the weekend…on Saturday there may be some flurries. Sunday’s forecast is, “Chilly with plenty of clouds, perhaps some snow, or snow mixed with rain.”
Does not sound like “snowmagedden” to me.
I don’t want to downplay the event Sunday, but I also don’t want to stress on it either. Nor at this time should you. The current modeling does not merge two lows together into a mega storm. If this trend continues we will be livin’ large in the land of pleasant living. Stay tuned!
Have a great and a safe day, ya’ll!
