Ohio Valley part of storm fades
Oct. 21, 2019 4 P.M.
Since late last week I’ve been hearing all these horror stories about today’s weather – heavy rain, flash flooding, possible severe storms, strong winds, etc.
Well, Monday has arrived and only (mostly) one part of the forecast will be correct. We have had strong winds – gusts in the mid 30’s. Although we were led to believe they’d be about 10 mph stronger.
Periods of rain are likely through about 9 P.M. though total rainfall should be about a quarter-inch or less. A little lightning will be possible around 8 P.M. Winds will still remain gusty- gusts possible of 30-35 mph late afternoon but diminishing this evening.
This situation brought back a story about a former WAVE weathercaster from waaaay back. He had predicted the next day to be sunny, windy and warm. Instead, we had a cloudy, cool, rainy and windy day.
His next broadcast began this way…”See, I told you it was going to be windy today!”
