Wet Times Ahead

The weather pattern is becoming very wet after enduring a long dry spell.

The weather pattern is becoming increasingly moist across eastern North Carolina.  A stationary frontal system combined with a deep moist easterly flow off the Atlantic Ocean is setting the stage for a prolonged period of damp weather in our area.  Western North Carolina has already been seeing the clouds and showers.  They will move slowly east over the next 24 hours reaching eastern North Carolina by Saturday afternoon and night.  A developing area of low pressure just east of the Bahamas will begin to move north and northwest by early next week.  The easterly winds ahead of the system will pump abundant moisture into the area late Sunday into the first half of next week.  It is too early to tell how much rain will fall but rather cloud and damp conditions could linger into the middle of next week.  The clouds and showers will hold high temperatures to near 80° into the first half of next week.

    This isn't about the blog, but the general email link wouldn't work for me. I really dislike the new First Alert weather site. It doesn't have the info that the old site did (ie. wind,temperature,national maps,ability to get info for other parts of the country), and is not as user friendly.
