Very Nice Day Ahead (Big Changes Coming)

Highs on Thursday (today) will run all the way up to the middle 60's.  Winds could gust to 30 mph. Changes begin overnight as strong storms are possible after midnight. Windy again tonight with gusts to 35 mph. Showers and Thunderstorms for Friday with highs in the upper 50's. More rain on Friday night with a low around 40°..then for Saturday, rain..possibly mixing with and then changing to snow with the snow continuing on Saturday night.

*Latest, Local Forecast*

I've had a couple of requests about doing video forecasts.  I'll be investigating what it will take to accomplish that. If anyone has any suggestions, pass them along to me!

Severe Weather Awareness Week continues in Tennessee.  Today's topic is Flash Flooding. There is a phrase that says "Turn Around, Don't Drown". Did you know that Flooding and Flash Flooding are the number one weather-related killer?  I didn't either.  Most flood deaths occur at night and when people become trapped in automobiles that stall in areas that are flooded.  So, "Turn Around, Don't Drown"...

In my weather spotters class, they told us in TN that Tornadoes are our #1 killer. Why? Cheap construction such as mobile homes and many tornadoes come through at night when we are unprepared. Another reason to get a weather alert radio.

Just going to let you know I would use adobe premier I think it is. I have used it in the past to do a video like forecast. I will have to find the link to the one I did to give you a idea.
