I remarked to someone yesterday that the rains that were supposed to arrive on Saturday never did so. A quick check of news outlets this morning showed that neighboring counties did get quite a bit of rain, high winds, and at least one report of a tornado.
Today is going to be much the same type of day. This afternoon’s forecast includes thunderstorms, high winds, and the possibility of tornadoes. The rain has already started this morning in my town of Hickory, North Carolina. The rain is quite torrential and the winds are starting to pick up as well.
Reports I have read and seen say that the worst part of the storms will come around mid-afternoon. And so unlike yesterday, I’ll be paying a bit more attention to the skies and weather today. I wasn’t aware of the high winds and possible tornadoes until this morning. Otherwise, I would have said yesterday was a pretty mild day.
It is that time of year,,,and diligent those of us in the South must be.
