Good evening, all! Welcome to the Tri Cities Weather Blog! Tonight’s blog will start with info about a weather song, and then I’ll follow with the forecast.
During Bible Buddies, I played a song called “Round and Round,” sung by Nick Walker from The Weather Channel, also known as The Weather Dude. It’s one of my favorite songs on his “Don’t Get Scared, Just Get Prepared” CD. The song tells about how most of the time, air goes up (updraft) and down (downdraft) in a thunderstorm. But occasionally the bad storms (severe thunderstorms, aka supercell storms) have wind that goes around and around. Some, but not all storms that do that produce tornadoes, which are rotating columns of air that come from a thunderstorm and touch the ground and are very dangerous!
Make sure to check out http://www.wxdude.com for info on Nick Walker’s CD, when you can see him on The Weather Channel, and all sorts of other things, including study guides about his songs (click Weather Songs)! You’ll be able to read the lyrics and let browse around his site to help you learn about severe weather safety.
On to the forecast, and I’ll do it in quick format today. There is low pressure near Florida that will be moving northeast, and a cold front that will pass just north of here on Friday. That will bring increased clouds, but there’s not really enough moisture to cause too much in the way of rainfall. However, there is a chance through tomorrow night. Here’s the forecast, have a great Friday!
Tonight-Partly cloudy, perhaps light rain in the NC mountains. Low 38.
Friday-Partly sunny, again an outside chance of rain during the day. High 68.
Friday night-Cloudy, maybe a passing rain shower. Low 43.
Saturday-Partly to mostly sunny, high 73.
Easter Sunday-Mostly sunny, high 75.
