Storms and Rumors Of Storms

It has been dry lately but it appears that several storms will impact our area over the next two weeks.

Last night I discussed that temperatures would return to winter like conditions over the next few days.  Reviewing the latest data suggests to me that areas of low pressure will begin to spread moisture into these colder temperatures by early next week.  Showers are expected to develop across eastern North Carolina on Saturday and that should help alleviate the dangerous fire conditions we've seen at the end of the week.  By late Sunday another storm system should develop just to our south.  Rain  will spread into southeastern North Carolina by late Sunday night.  Colder air will be moving into the area at the same time and that could lead to a changeover from rain to snow, especially in northern sections by early Monday.  We'll continue to monitor this storm and others over the next two to three weeks as it looks like winter will once again visit our area.

    Tornado season has begun across the SE USA. Feb-Apr are traditional months for tornadoes in NC. The biggest outbreaks in NC/SC history were on March 28, 1984 and February 19, 1884. I am preparing a case study of the 1984 tornadoes as part of my ongoing research for the NWS. Currently I am trying to calculate the forward speed of that storm that developed in far eastern Alabama and moved across SC and eastern NC between 150 pm and 1030 pm. I know that clocks stopped in Bennettsville, SC at 702 pm. I would really like to know the exact time that the tornado hit parts of Greenville (contact me hugehail at yahoo). Were there any clocks that stopped at a certain time? Any information would be greatly appreciated. My current thought is that the storm raced at 63 mph across SC. No wonder people didnt have much time to react. By the time the 1st crack of thunder is heard, the storm is almost on top of you. This is about as fast as tornadoes move. Plains tornadoes usually move 20 to 40 mph.
