Friday October 12

Michael is now off the coast and The National Hurricane Center has identified it as Post Tropical Cyclone. It is moving to the ENE at 29 mph, so it is racing away. But the wind speed is back up to 65 mph. The is helping to pull in wind behind it and that is part of what we feel today. The other part is an Autumn air mass marking the arrival of Fall for many. It will be cooler today and chilly this weekend.

We will have some rain Saturday morning and the first snow flakes in the high mountains (short drive away). Who wants to make a road trip?  Full report below

High Temperatures Today

Normally I would suggest tomorrow morning would be cold, but cloud racing in will bring in some rain Saturday morning. It wil be a morning event. Watch the blue for a patch of snow in WV. This is most likely between Snowshoe and Timberline
