The buzz has been around for a few days and while I have been talking about it there are a few words of caution. We are just now getting closer to a time where some specifics are starting to come into clearer focus. There are still some serious doubts about the track and location but there’s no denying that the pattern is very conducive for a winter storm in the Southeast to the Mid-Atlantic. Read more
One of the biggest snowstorms in Charlotte history started on this date 9 years ago. In an amazing day of snow that saw the city come to a stand still at noon time when everyone left work and school at the same time. We saw 2 waves of snow on during the day and another at night into the 27th. We even saw thunders now several times.
March 1st is just a few days away and with it the beginning of Meteorological Spring. Which runs from December 1st through February 28th. It certainly looks like mother nature has different plans for the eastern half of the country in particular the Southeast. Read more

Thursday night into Friday morning a perfect set-up for freezing rain will develop for parts of the western Carolinas. An area of cold dry high pressure will “wedge” itself up against the mountains starting Thursday evening.

Tomorrow at around 2:24pm EST an asteroid named 2012 DA14 will come very close to the Earth. So close it will actually pass within he ring of geosynchronous satellites that circle the Earth. At it’s closest approach tomorrow afternoon it will only be 17,200 miles away. There is a small chance it could take out a weather or GPS satellites as it flies by. All agencies are trying to avoid this but there is still a small chances that could happen.
