Thursday, April 16, 2009

First off, I want to remind everyone to take a moment to remember those lost in the shootings on campus at Virginia Tech 2 years ago today. They will never be forgotten. Long live Virginia Tech!

A beautiful sunny morning right now here in Snowville. A few light clouds, but seeing mostly sunny skies attm. Satellite loop shows clouds thinning right now, but with a convective temperature of 50°, we may see some puffy cumulus clouds start forming when we reach that point...which will probably be sometime around 10:30 this morning. With high pressure building in from the north, we will stay dry today with lots of sunshine. An interesting setup as the mountains will likely see warmer temperatures than southside today, with a surge of warm air along the spine of the Blue Ridge at 850mb at 0z. Temperatures should be able to reach the mid 60s today...and the NRV should hit 64 later today. Winds will be light and from the northeast.

High pressure settles over the area for Friday, bringing us mostly sunny skies once again. A few clouds may try to work their way in later in the afternoon/evening, but for the most part, a nice day is in store for the region. Temperatures should reach the upper 60s...possibly hitting the low 70s in Dublin...forecasting a high of 72 for them on Friday. With the high almost directly overhead, we shouldn't experience any winds.

The very slow moving system that's been over the western half of the country since 2 days ago will still be located over the Southern Plains as we go into Saturday. This is good since most of Texas and Oklahoma are in a drought situation. With the exception of a few clouds, we should stay dry and sunny through the day. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 70s with 74 forecast for the airport in Dublin with light winds from the west.
