As we continue to remain in dry conditions around the area. All of Rowan County is now under abnormally dry conditions with regards to Drought. This is the beginning of what could lead to Stage 1 Drought conditions around the county if we do not get some much needed rainfall soon.
It's no secret we are in need of rainfall in Rowan County. We have certainly been dry for sometime now and are starting to really see the affects of the lack of rainfall.
We are under an Air Quality Alert until p.m. this evening around the county. Did you know the office that issues the warning is The North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality in Raleigh NC.
It's that time of year again where we transition from Summer to Fall. One of the annual trips Rowan County residents like to make is their trip to the mountains of North Carolina to see the fall colors at their peak.
Good Wednesday afternoon everyone. Hurricane Dorian is beginning to move through the Carolina coastline. Let's take a look at the latest track of the storm and then I will give you details on what to expect at the coast and right here in Rowan County.

Happy Labor Day everyone! All eyes continue to be on Hurricane Dorian, the potential track and impacts if any that we will see here in Rowan County from the storm. The 11am update just came out so lets take a look at the latest track by the National Hurricane Center.
Good Sunday morning. Hurricane Dorian has now become a Category 5 storm. This is the 4th straight year a Hurricane has become a Category 5 storm in the Atlantic.
As we enjoy Labor Day weekend here in the Carolina's a major hurricane is moving across the Atlantic nearing the Florida peninsula. Dorian has been a big part of the conversation over the past few days.
As I mentioned in my afternoon social media post about this storm yesterday the track has been adjusted showing a northward turn after making landfall in Florida. The question remains where is Dorian going to go, if and when could we see impacts here in Rowan County.
