Clear Today With A Chance For Rain Tomorrow!

Well, it has been a nice start to the work week so far don't you think? Well, we have another nice day today before we talk about more possible rain showers tomorrow! But before we get into that! I did add another link to my newest weather page. As well as this weather Blog. Yes, it is my Follow Us On Twitter link. All you have to do is click on the link and there you are. I have had Twitter for a long time however I was having problems for some time and could not get it going for some odd reason? But now it is back working and going strong! With my Twitter you can check out some of what goes on when I'M not doing the weather forecast or the Blog post! There may be some weather stuff on there sometime however mostly just my spare time stuff! lol. I know some of my Blogger friends are already following! And thank you for that! ;]

And now back to your local forecast! Check out this map I have posted for you all below. Yes, this is your Quick Cast Blog Cast.You can see by the map above that today is looking like a nice Summer day with highs in the upper 80s and Partly cloudy to Mostly sunny skies through out the day! To make it better the winds will be light again today between 10 and 15 mph! Lows still mild in the lower 60s possible and we hold off on the rain chances until closer to Tomorrow.

Now at this time it is only around a 40% chance at some scattered showers across the area. As you already know I will have more updates on this chance of rain coming up soon. No severe thunderstorms are expected at this time which is great news for all of us! I know a lot of you would rather take a winter storm over a severe thunderstorm any day. I know I sure would!! Man Now I'M thinking about Winter weather tracking! lol. I have to remember it is still Summer and try not to get ahead of myself! LOL :) I just love Winter that much! Just like our use to be meteorologist Mike Prangley! Who is Truly missed! That man sure knows his weather that is for sure! I don't think anyone knows as much as he does Weather - wise that is!

And last but not least I wanted to have a quick little post about something everyone has been talking about! Well, some anyway! lol. Yes the STS-127. This shuttle has been delayed many times already do to bad weather conditions. It is now expected to launch on Wednesday July 15th at 6:03pm EDT. Here is a picture as well as a little info on this ready to go shuttle below..........Liftoff of space shuttle Endeavour on the STS-127 mission has been rescheduled for Wednesday, July 15 at 6:03 p.m. EDT.Monday's attempt was canceled due to poor weather conditions within the launch area at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Anvil clouds and storm cells containing lightning flared up toward the end of the countdown, violating stringent launch safety rules."Technically, we've been really clean the last two days with our vehicle," Launch Integration Manager Mike Moses said of Endeavour's launch attempts on Sunday and Monday. "It's just been the weather scenario that got us."The outlook is better on Wednesday, with only a 40 percent chance of weather conditions prohibiting liftoff.

The 16-day mission will feature five spacewalks and complete construction of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's Kibo laboratory. Astronauts will attach a platform to the outside of the Japanese module that will allow experiments to be exposed to space.

The STS-127 crew members are Commander Mark Polansky, Pilot Doug Hurley and Mission Specialists Dave Wolf, Christopher Cassidy, Tom Marshburn, Tim Kopra and Canadian Space Agency astronaut Julie Payette. Kopra will join the space station crew and replace Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata. Wakata will return to Earth on Endeavour to conclude a three-month stay at the station.

Good luck to all these men and women on there mission in space this week. God bless them and pray they come back home safe and sound! Good luck everyone. Bloggers have a wonderful day.......... I will check back soon....................

I liked Mike alot, but I think Chad has him beat hands down. Just a difference of opinion.

Anonymous said...

OMG !!! How can you say that MR CHAD has Mike beat ??? Can you not hear what he says every day and night on the weather? MMMM lets see.. OH YA since day 1 that he has been there we were supposed to get a "hurricane" and "tornado" figure of speech. And where the hell is he when the weather is bad?? We can hear him but we cant see him!!! A real weather man ..aka MIKE.. would be there "coaching us through the storms.. but noooo MR CHAD.. is on a mic somewhere .. probably in HIS safe spot while some one else is in front of the tv.. What a man !!! He has not been right on the weather yet.. NOT ONCE !!!! HE says .."Looks like storms out tonight" I walk out and it is sunny as hell. No rain for a week!! But I guess if you call for rain every day you are bound to get it right sooner or later .. Better then MIKE>>> not even in his little pinky finger.. I think they were desperate as hell to fill the position to drag his ass to Lafayette.. Send him back to school.. and where ever they got him from, He is the SHAQ of Weather Men.. [ by the way.. not a compliment.. shaq cant do shit either unless he has a GREAT team behind him, doing all the hard work.} Then he blames his mistakes on not being trained? WTF !!! Thought he went to COLLEGE !!!! Cant blame others your whole life .. What if he misses a tornado is he going to tell people .." Sorry wasnt trained on how to spot them and read the map?" GIVE ME A BREAK !!! YA WHAT A HERO YOU GOT THERE MRS ANONYMOUS !!! We know who you are !!!!!!!! BY THE WAY PICK A SIDE WILL YA !!! He talks to us like we are kids , but maybe that is because he sees the maps in crayons... I dont know.. Just my opinion !!!!

Looks like the rain tomorrow may be out of our area around 3 or 4ish.

Colts are coming to town and need some good weather! :)

Gee Jeep32, get a life. You sound like one unhappy camper. I guess you don't remember last winter when Mike kept predicting all that snow we never got. Both Mike and Chad do their best. They miss it some times, but usually get it right. Chill out. We're only taking weather here.

Jeep go find another blog to cry on. We here are real weather fans.

Not trying to start anything here however I have to agree with Jeep32. I really don't think Chad is any good at what he does. Mike had been there for many many years and always had a warm feeling that everyone could feel whenever he came on TV to give the weather. Chad on the other hand is no good at meteorology. I won't say he is a bad guy mostly because I don't know him however I will say he "Sucks" at what he does. He is just not smart enough to do meteorology.

And one more thing! Does anyone use there name anymore??? That is real tough posting Anonymous all the time lol. And to the one above who posted "who is Mrs anonymous we all know, Creep32? opps Jeep32" That is so childish!! What are you 50 going on 15??

Grow up!!

I was not cryin on here thank you. I was giving my opinion to some one elses opinion. I guess if I do not agree with ANONYMOUS , I can not post an opinion. Well Sorry I say what I think. And I feel if you want to compliment CHAD go to his blog and do it! Leave him off of this one !! For he will not let Justin on his blog so why should he be on Justins. In case you were all wondering why Justin does not post on WLFI anymore. [ Of course I am sure Chad or Anonymous will come up with an very good off the wall explaination ] I do however want to apologize to Justin for the "FOUL LANGUAGE" . I have been a follower of his blog since day one., I have read the comments and you can pretty much tell who is who , even if they try to hide .Any way Justin knows his stuff and is pretty much 100% right. He stays up all night during storms and keeps us up to date. He is very dedicated to the blog and to his bloggers . And this isnt even his job. He doesnt even get paid. And then the next day I have read comments of people praising CHAD !! Come on.. !! If you dont appreciate what Justin does and still want to HAIL CHAD !! Then go to Chads blog and stay there. That is what I have to say about that. I respect you Justin and your hard work and
dedication !! THANK YOU !!!!

and for the creep32 comment.. LOL give me a break !! shouldnt you have parental control on your computer? That comment was grade school !! LOL..

I am done with this issue.. Didnt know that a difference in opinion would get the "kids" so upset.
