Thursday winter storm potential, then a milder pattern

This is going to be an active week of weather with 2 storms heading our way. The first one tonight into Tuesday will be mainly rain for the piedmont but some snow for the mountains. Storm #2 on Wednesday night into Thursday will bring snow for most of the area including the Charlotte area. The real question is will it be just flurries or will there be accumulations? Here’s my video briefing on the situation this morning and like most of this winter the guidance has been very unreliable with this storm as well.


Here’s a look at the storm tracks and snowfall potential from HPC(Hydro Meteorological Prediction Center).

Ready for Spring? Here’s the good news!

The good news if you are ready for Spring all signs point to a major pattern shift to milder weather after this weekend. The NAO(North Atlantic Oscillation) and AO(Arctic Oscillation) both go from their very negative territory this winter to positive. This along with the long range models all point to milder air starting late this weekend into next week.

www.wxbrad.com the new home for my blog

With the success of the blog and the need to add new features like a request page, weather data, pictures and so much more. I decided to finally host the site on my own server and use WordPress as my content management system.  While my blogs will be updated frequently I’m still building out the other pages, so I ask for your patience.  I hope to have all of the climate data for Charlotte and the Carolinas hosted on the site so it can be a one stop shopping place for Carolina weather information. I’m currently working on a logo and some other design features so this is really just the beginning. If there is something you would like to see or contribute to the site please drop me an email or tweet about it.

Thanks for stopping by,
