Sunshine and Seasonably Chilly Thursday

A very quiet weather pattern is expected across eastern North Carolina for the next few days. We should see plenty of sunshine Thursday as temperatures reach the seasonable lower 50s. An area of low pressure will move to our north late Thursday producing snow across the northern Middle Atlantic states and New England. The low will drag a cold front through our area early Friday and could produce a few showers. Clearing skies and chilly conditions will develop for the weekend with highs in the lower 40s.

    OSOC: Pretty much, yeah that is a good way to explain it. I mean everything is a theory at this point because we have not kept records long enough over a large area to know whether or not what we are experiencing is cyclic or caused by something else. I just get frustrated when people do the stupid GW claim b/c it snows. My argument to that is - well yesterday the stock market was down, OMG we are going into another recession...well no, if you look at the trend, the market is going up. Basically, short term variability is not necessarily an affect of the long term trend. I think Al Gore's passion at first was legit, but once money got involved it became a business and that really hurt the science. I do believe in climate change, but as to what is causing that, I am not convinced either way. Aside from that, the push to make our society a cleaner, healthier, and self-sustaining one (on an energy/pollution level) is not bad whether it is the cause or not.

    Well, Really? I have seen a cooler summer last summer over a colder winter last year. Now we have a cooler winter and fall. My point is we have cyclic weather changes that are influened by El Nino, La Nino, and lots of varibles. I respect you thoughts on that as we are not fools that went along with the global warming scenerio. I know its bad when politics get in the way of science. That was the part that lost most of us when Al Gore took it in his reign to make money on it...and he did. Laura says its getting colder and warmer, however, looking at Mr Utility 12 month costs...winters are the big cost to us now. I caught the floods, however, most countries have gone through floods through history...just depends on the new technoloy of weather science, something we didn't have 100 years ago. I think from my experience and research, weather is cyclic due to complicated models based on too many varibles to predict annual events. Is that what you think as well?

    OSOC: Climate not weather...there is a difference.

    It seems like the winters are getting colder while the summers are getting much hotter.

    It is so amazing how our government and governer and the STATE can WAISTE so much money on such stupid things and how they just blow so much money. The more they blow the more they get. It alt to be the more you can save they better off we could be and then if we need money(the state) we alt to be able to get it. We alt to be rewared for what we can save. maybe then we could get out of some of this debt we are in. If we where SMART we would NOT be doing a fair trade with CHINA. (NOT SUCH A GREAT DEAL) if you are asking me. You kinda get what you pay for!!!!! we should be able to get more BRINE for the roads with no problem.

    Part of "Global Warming" is worldwide climate change. More frequently harsh winters in places that aren't accustomed to them is actually more evidence to support it. Check out the historic floods in China, Pakistan and Australia. It's certainly not cold everywhere. (Plus, this was the hottest summer on record in NC.) Did you notice we had no real spring or fall this year. Get used to that. Hotter summers and colder winters are what our climate changes will most likely be.

    Well someone please tell those global warming people we are freezing since early December? If you want to make a convicing arguement, at least have the data to support it....
