Rain, T-Storm Chances On The Way

While we’ve enjoyed some pleasant, sun filled weather over the past couple of afternoons, we still could use a little more rain for our lawns, fields, and gardens to keep things green and from the looks of our current forecast for the next few days, there will be at least a couple of opportunities to […]

By January 21st, we’ll be up to 34 minutes. There’s your daily dose of watercooler talk. Still looks like a freezing drizzle/drizzle on late Wednesday night into Thursday….then rain […]

Ho, Ho, Snow!

Yeah, Santa won’t have any difficulty getting here next week. Infact, he may be buried in snow upon landing on roofs, looking at how things are going… Two things to talk about: two storms, each with a chance to bring us accumulating snow and to impact travel. 1) Monday-Tuesday.

June 15, 2010 0 Comments

Storms are popping ahead of a cold front moving through.  We’ve had reports of funnels west of Rochester this afternoon, but no warnings, and no tornadoes, and nothing more than some gullywashers and lightning.

More Fog Tonight

January 18, 2010 0 Comments

There shouldn’t be any surprise to this forecast for tonight: more fog, more fog, more fog, with nearly the whole area once again under a Dense Fog Advisory (thru noon Tuesday).  Be careful driving. There will be icy spots looming on roadways, bridges, etc. On our minds: a messy/slippery late Wednesday into Thursday with some freezing rain/sleet […]
