And Saturday, the weekend . . . still mostly sunny, and Highs will probably be in the lower 70's with Lows hopping up into the mid to upper 40's - probably mid 40's - but as both the GFS and ECMWF models have suggestions of a (rather potent) storm system developing in the West/Midwest, I wonder if some of that moisture might edge out ahead of it. This does remind me that November is typically our secondary severe weather season in the Southeast region, so while you are setting your clocks back, it might also be a good idea to change the batteries in your
- not a bad idea to change them in smoke detectors and such too. I normally forget these things, but I read the reminders from NWS/EMA sources and kinda' pass it on as friendly advice. Just by the way, if you don't have a weather radio, you can get these things for about $30 at most grocery stores. And that's less money than most people pay monthly for their TV or internet for something that lasts many, many years. The batteries are just in case the power goes out. I love the Midland models like I provided the link to (also the kind most grocery stores sell), because they now take regular AA batteries, fairly cheap and easier to put in than those square batteries we had in the old days . . . heh.
Oh well, enjoy the nice week . . . even the little bit of rain early in the week probably will barely be enough to notice, for a lot of people. HPC is showing just trace rainfall totals, a quarter-inch at very most for the whole period, and I agree with that.Google +Twitter
As I was writing this, Alabama's football team pulled off an INCREDIBLE comeback to beat LSU with only about a minute to spare. I'm not a huge sports fan, but in the spirit of state pride - ROLL TIDE! :)
P.S. Also should mention that, mainly on Wednesday, it looks like there
is a threat for the area affected by Tropical Cyclone Sandy in the
East/Northeast U.S. to get another (much weaker, of course) nor'easter
storm. This is very minor compared to Sandy, but obviously it is also
very unwelcome news for folks who live there. So anybody you know up
that way, just tell them to get ready for round two . . . even though
Sandy was a rare, historic thing . . . this is just a regular
nor'easter. Dan Satterfield, who did some great work in weather in these
parts for many years but is now bestowing his gifts on the fine folks
in Maryland, has posted a blog about this
