Tonight's #MoonRise
7 years ago today:
13 years ago today:
Yesterday I was stopped on Leetown Rd at Box Factory Rd between Middleway and Summit Point watching the storm as it moved out of Berkeley into Jefferson. I snapped the attached photo looking due north at 614pm about 10 minutes prior to it moving into Ranson.
The passage of a strong cold front will cause wind gusts of 40-60 mph across the region. High Wind Warnings and Wind Advisories are in effect and could lead to downed limbs, trees and power outages.
Hail outside of Moorefield WV. Spotter ID HD 007.
Are you aware of any problem with the Local Forecast pages not loading on Computers?? Been trying to access local forecast for Annapolis (KNAK) and I get an error message. I get Text Product and other pages OK.
I live in HdG and filmed an hour’s worth of a fata morgana on the bay off Concord Point. I have a lot of footage and was wondering if anyone would be interested in seeing what I filmed. I wonder, too, whether any one else reported this phenomenon. I also would like to know the best resource for looking up the profile for the area. I’m very interested in the data.
Nothing about Staunton, VA.? As a spotter who lives in Rockbridge, the next county to Augusta,I really wanted to know what the rain rate and rain total was over Staunton last night. US National Weather Service Baltimore/Washington
Whoever is preparing the high and low forecasts for Roseland, VA, ZipCode 22967 needs to do much better. For example, the forecasted highs for this week are in the mid 70's, but the actual highs will be in the upper 90's and increasing to triple digits later this week and into next week. Someone needs to go back to weather school.
