Good Wednesday Afternoon!
I hope you are having a great day & I'm glad you have joined me for my first official weather blog from The Buck Weather Center here on 98.7 The Buck! This is something new we are doing and I hope you will continue to join me on this journey as I help keep you informed with not only your latest weather updates, but also some informative and fun weather information.
So I'll keep this first blog pretty simple as I share a couple of definitions so you can better understand as well as going over a look at your forecast for the remainder of the week and into the weekend.
Hazardous Weather Outlook (HWO) - a weather statement issued to provide information of potential severe weather events within the next seven days. The outlook may include information about potential severe thunderstorms, heavy rain or flooding, winter weather, extreme temperatures, and so on.
Let's take a look at the forecast:
Today/Tonight - For the rest of this afternoon into tonight, it looks as if we still have a chance of seeing some isolated showers and storms. The main threat with these storms will be cloud to ground lightning but keep in mind locally heavy rainfall cannot be ruled out. Today's high temps will top around 89-90 and tonights lows will be around the low 70s.
Thursday/Thursday Night - We will start off with some patchy morning fog and as the day goes on we will see some scatter showers and storms. Rain & storm chances will hang around 80-90% for our area. Thursday highs will be in the lower 80s and the lows will be in the upper 60s. Same story for Thursday night as we will continue to see the chance for showers & storms.
Friday/Friday Night - Rain & storm chances will continue to hang around with them being around 70-80%. Other than seeing that we will have mostly cloudy skies and highs will hang around the lower 80s. Friday night lows will be in the upper 60s, along with a 60% chance of more showers & storms for parts of the area.
Saturday/Saturday Night - I feel like I'm a broken record saying we will continue to see a 60% chance of seeing scattered showers & storms for Saturday. Saturday high temps will hang around the lower 80s yet again. Saturday night, yet again, 60% chance of showers & storms, low temps will continue to hang around the upper 60s.
Sunday/Sunday Night - It looks like we will end the weekend about like how we start it by having a 50% chance of showers and storms, other than that it will be partly sunny and highs will be in the low 80s. Sunday night rain chances decrease down to 30% and lows will be a bit cooler in the mid 60s.
Of course I will put my disclaimer, stating that the forecast is subject to change and when it does, I will do my best to update that here in my blog.
I hope this turns out to be a helpful, informative, & also a good thing! Be sure to let me know what you would like to see in my blogs by sending me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org! I'd love to get your feedback!
