An email has already gone out to our 4:00 PM producer. She will make the decision, but I said I wouldn’t object to our leading with weather even though it’s partly cloudy and the radar is currently clear.
It’s a critical weather night. Tens of thousands of people will be out (hopefully) watching fireworks. I’m worried about natural fireworks!
So far the day has gone ‘as predicted.’ The rest of today’s forecast calls for scattered late afternoon and evening showers and thunder.
The storms should be done by 9:30 when most towns launch their fireworks. Unfortunately, ‘should’ is not necessarily ‘will.’
I can’t change the weather. My job is to give a heads up. That’s why forecasting from the sofa while in pajamas is what I do.
