Our mild spell ends as things become a bit wintry

How many times have we talked about how mild and pleasant this fall season has been, especially during this unusually mild November? Probably ten times on this blog alone and about 100 times on the air! A major shift is occurring right now, however, that will not only bring an end to the mild weather for good, but it looks […]

Over the past month and […]

After a brief respite from summer-like heat and humidity this week, we’re looking at some changes as we approach the final weekend in July. High pressure from Canada has been responsible for providing us with this refreshing cool, and less humid air for a few days with temperatures once again dropping off to 70s for highs and 50s […]

A warm and very humid start to the weekend

Our break from heat and heavy humidity is over and now the Deep South-style weather we experienced last weekend and early this week is returning in time for this weekend.

Warmer, more unsettled days ahead in an active weather pattern

After a blustery, raw start to the week, things have momentarily brightened up and gotten much more pleasant for us thanks to an area of high pressure. This at least gives us a break from clouds and showers for a day in what is shaping up to be a long-term “active” weather pattern, one that […]

Just when it seems like perhaps we’ve turned the corner and now the worst of winter might be behind us, we find ourselves looking up at yet another blast of Arctic air for our weekend. While temperatures for Friday seems relatively close to what we would call “typical” or “seasonable” for this time of the year, […]
