Spring is here!

I'm back from vacation and my batteries are recharged. I'll post some pics from the trip a little later (I'm still trying to unpack).

I did want to make everyone aware of the threat of thunderstorms for Sunday. I just sat down and took a look at the Storm Prediction Center's website and noticed that Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Indiana are highlighted with a "Slight Risk" area.

The above graphic is the Day 3 Outlook from SPC. It covers the time period 7am Sunday - 7am Monday. The current forecast discussion from the meteorologists at SPC state that the main threat from thunderstorms will be large hail and damaging wind.

By the way, welcome to spring! Meteorological spring begins March 1.

If you are out and about this weekend, it might be a good idea to pick-up a new battery for your NOAA weather radio. If you don't have one, it would be a perfect time to purchase one.
