If you are like me. You are not a fan of the 90º weather we've been experiencing over the past few days. The good news is we are about 30 hours away from a cool down. The bad news is that cool down is going to bring a huge amount of rainfall with it over the next seven days.
This weekend has some great events going on around the county. I wanted take a moment to give you the forecast specifically for the Rowan Arts & Ag Farm to Table event going on at Patterson Farm tomorrow. By letting you know you tickets are still available.
With highs expected to be in the 90's around the #RoCo this weekend. I wanted to provide you with the necessary information to keep you cool and safe during this upcomng heatwave.
Let's start with the most imprtant safety facor of all!
If you have been driving around the county recently. I am sure you have either hit a pothole or swerved to avoid one. Potholes are always an issue in the Spring. i wanted to take a few moments to explain to you why that is.
We have had the benefit of some dry weather over the past few days. A weak cold front will move through the area later this afternoon and evening that will bring just ahead of it the chance for thunderstorms. I believe some of these storms will be strong.
Rain chances have been building in the forecast for Saturday. As we are now around 36 hours away from this event starting in the county I wanted to give you a very brief update.
As we prepare for our 4th straight day of rainfall in the county. We are also preparing for possible severe weather later this evening. I will provide details on the potential impacts as I go through this post with you. Let's start with the arrival of the rainfall in the county.
As we begin another week we will see the return of rain to the county. Things looks great outside as of 8:45am. We will see that change as we move through the day. Clouds will increase throughout the day and evening. A high of around 68º
Myself along with other forecasters and meteorologist have been keeping you aware of the severe weather threat for several days now. Today is the day to stay weather aware as we will see our first severe storms of the season. The main threat will be damaging winds and localized flooding.
Rowan County’s farms are rich in history, and we are blessed with dedicated preservationists who take pride in restoring our treasured structures and saving our sprawling landscapes.
