North Carolina Strawberry Festival, Chadbourn, NC

My daughters are home for this year's festival.  It is hard to believe it is time already for the parade.  My students have been talking all week about going to the parade and all the excitement they are expecting.  Not real sure what they are inferring, and not sure I want to know.  I am going to the parade, and hope they have a nice time.  Ok, that is all I am going to say about that.  I feel sure they will experience some educationally enriching events...

The weather this year is much cooler than average.  Last year, it was too hot.  I just read the weather forecast I subscribe to from WECT-TV.

It has been a few years since we have had rain on the parade, but unless George Elliott is way off, we will be fine for the parade.  Just carry your wind-breaker, baseball cap, and an umbrella.

I will post photos later today.

<blockquote>Greetings from George Elliott at WECT-TV! Here's my outlook...

We need the rain, and although it looks like a weekend event, we'll have to take what we get. Showers will increase across the area today and especially tonight, and most likely linger into the first part of Sunday. Some spots could see an easy half inch, with isolated higher amounts if an isolated t'shower passes overhead.

A complex storm system to the west will transfer energy along the Carolina coast tonight through Sunday, and this will develop a potent offshore low pressure area. In the process, showery weather will spread across the area, and winds will pick up Sunday into Monday as the storm system offshore intensifies and high pressure from the Northeast builds down the eastern seaboard.

Precipitation should end as the storm system moves (but stalls) east of us by late Sunday into early next week. Eventually, the storm center to our east will weaken and will move farther out to sea.

Mostly cloudy with patchy showers developing today; high lower 70's. Northerly wind becoming easterly 4-16 mph.

Cloudy with showers likely tonight; low around 60. Easterly wind 4-16 mph.
