Once again, we are fortunate enough to have another luminary from the meteorology world join us today. This time, it’s David Still from ABC24 in Memphis that has graced us with his presence. Without further interruption, here is what Mr. Still had to say about himself, and his forecast for Memphis!
Ever since Hurricane Hugo ripped through my hometown of Charlotte, NC when I was a kid I was pretty much hooked on the weather. It took a while for me to finally figure out exactly what I wanted to do so it took an extra round of school. I have a meteorology Post-Baccalaureate degree from the University of North Carolina at Asheville and a degree from Appalachian State University. Although I love the mountains if I could live anywhere it would definitely be on the coast of North or South Carolina. When I’m not at work I hit the gym pretty religiously. Depending on the season I like to fish and hunt. Lately, I’ve been trying to figure out if I have a green thumb.
And now on to the forecast:
Friday Night: We’ll look for mostly cloudy skies as a weak system from the Northern Plains scoots through Missouri. Luckily we stay dry and not as cold, low 25.
Saturday: Expect decreasing clouds during the day Saturday. A weak southerly flow becomes established across the Midsouth for the weekend helping the cold situation to an extent. Area snowmen will melt a bit during in the afternoon, but staying pretty chilly, partly sunny, high 42.
Saturday night: Partly cloudy skies combined with a light south wind keep the mercury closer to what we expect for late January, low 30.
Sunday: Clouds roll back into the Midsouth in advance of our next potential winter weather maker. Mostly cloudy, high 43.
Old Man Winter remains grumpy…the rest of next week will stay pretty cold and active. The good news for us!…he will focus his efforts more into Middle Tennessee, areas south towards Georgia, and east into the Carolinas by Wednesday.
Thank you Mr. David Still once again for adding your input here at Victoria-Weather. Again, you can see him weekday mornings and and during the midday news on ABC24 in Memphis.
