Rainy, Stormy Saturday...

The well advertised heavy rain event seems to be on track as computer guidance has been consistent on the timing for the past 3 days. NWS has issued a Flash Flood Watch for us beginning tomorrow morning.   The best rain chances should be between 10 AM through 5 PM with the highest occurring from 11-3 PM.  100% chance for rain does not mean it will rain 100% of the time.  There will be several dry hours, especially in the early morning, that could allow you to get out and do some errands.   It'll be one of those days to pay attention to the FOX 8 Weather App. so you or your children are not caught out on the roads when the heavy storms arrive.   We could touch 70+ early on Saturday with much colder air flowing in behind the surface low.  Sunday will struggle to get out of the 40s with Monday & Tuesday getting back into the 50s with all day sunshine.  We'll have to deal with another southern track low for later next week.   I have noticed 15 to 20 degree below zero air building again along Alaska's north slope.   No sign that that kind of chill is heading southward anytime soon.  Long range...there could be yet another major southern track low coming for Christmas week.  Way too soon to project where the snow might fall for Santa's journey into the lower 48.  Stay Tuned!

Frank Sinatra once sang..."regrets, I have a few, but then again too few to mention."     After being at the Elton John concert last night, I can truly say one of my "bucket list" items has been crossed off.   Sir Elton was every bit as advertised, even at age 71.  Sure he moves much slower, but his voice is still strong and man can he plan the piano!   The Smoothie King Center was packed and Sir Elton and his band had us rockin' for 2  1/2 hours.  I was exhausted just watching them.  What a night!  What a show!  Bravo Elton!  Thanks for the memories.
