On snowy days, like today, I get up around 4 a.m. to do weather closings. Yeah, someone has to do these things in radio and TV. And, luckily, my boss goes in to work about the same time and can gauge the road conditions for me. He drives a Camaro so if he can make it in (which is ALWAYS), I can make it in.
We're already off to a chilly and snowy start it seems. Here in the tristate we have already been treated to our first dose of winter weather. We are experiencing abnormally low temperatures and we've even had our first bout with sleet and snow. But what can we expect for the rest of the 2014-2015 winter season? Check out this video from the National Weather Service. It explains.
UGH!! I realize it's November and we're getting closer and closer to the official start of winter. But this is ridiculous. The National Weather Service says we're about to get a very harsh preview. Yep! Bitter cold temperatures are expected to arrive later this week AND there's a chance of some snow. Here's the latest forecast and a preview of just how cold our "highs" are going to be.
Brrrrrrr! I don't know about you guys, but I am NOT ready for this. We knew there was a chance it was going to be cold this weekend, but the National Weather Service says we are going to dip below the freezing mark. Yep! There's even a chance we'll see a Hard Freeze Warning in effect for the weekend! #ThisSucks!
We interrupt this perfect Fall weather to take a peek at the coming winter. Not the colors of the fuzzy caterpillars or the inside of the persimmon seed, but the long range forecast released by the NOAA Climate Prediction Center:
If you're already missing summer in Kentucky, then this isn't going to help. And if, like me, you're a much bigger fan of autumn, well, just picture all the greenery in shades of red, orange, yellow, and gold.
The approach of Fall means the beginning of the tristate's second severe weather season. And, according to the National Weather Service, we may get a sneak preview this afternoon. Parts of the WBKR listening area have been placed under a slight risk of severe weather.
Did you happen this "story" in your Facebook feed in the last week? After the winter we had last, it didn't seem that far-fetched. However, this winter forecast prediction story is fake. It's from the satirical and entertainment website Empire News.
Living in this area of the country, we all know that at any given point, a storm can get goin'. With storm season here, tornadoes are a major threat. Kenergy Corp. wants to remind you that the "First 72 Is On You".
