Drought Intensifies, Richard May Bring Rain Relief
I may not be able to control the weather but today I went out in search for rain. We all know First Coast as of right now has the only LIVE doppler radar in town as shown on television. Well I went to the National Weather Service to make sure their doppler radar was having the same problem picking up any drops of rain since September. Sure enough they agreed, no matter what radar you have been looking at we have picked up more bats, insects, and smoke from forest fires than rain. On Wednesday there were a few sprinkles in Pierce County, Georgia but that is the best we have been able to do. I spoke to Steve Letro the Meteorologist In Charge and we discussed why we should all be concerned about being this dry so early in the season. We are already now offically in our DROUGHT SEASON or what I call the dry season and if you are already running a deficit of 15 inches in some areas it likely will only get worse, especially when you are heading into a LA NINA winter. Check back over the weekend and on tonight's newscasts and I will have more on this developing weather story and phenomenon. Yes, fire season looks bad!
