A Stormy Week

Severe thunderstorms and a few tornadoes hit eastern North Carolina this week.

It has been a stormy week across eastern North Carolina.  Very warm and humid air moved into the area early in the week as a stationary front remained across southeastern Virginia into western North Carolina.  Several weak upper level disturbances moved along the frontal system causing several rounds of showers and thunderstorms.  Some of the storms became severe, especially during the afternoon and evenings.  As many as 6 tornadoes hit the eastern portion of the state on Tuesday and at least one on Thursday.  Several funnel clouds were also reported during Thursday afternoon.  Weather conditions should be a bit quieter on Friday and Saturday but a cold front could produce a few strong storms later Saturday as a cold front pushes through the area.  After all,  May is considered an active month for severe weather.  Behind the front we should see cooler and drier air for Mother's Day.  Highs should stay in the upper 70s with partly cloudy skies.

    Well you got to show off your weather equipment again! Why do people that just want to watch regular TV, be forced to hear the same old weather report over and over? Enough is enough. You alway over react anyway. Can't wait to see the hurricane reports with you fools standing out in the rain, acting like the wind is really blowing hard when the weeds behind you are lightly waving in the breeze. People that want to have full time weather can watch the weather channel, go on the computer, or listen to the radio. All the stations around here do the same thing!
