The initial threats of severe weather for today have diminished.

On Christmas Day meteorologists predicted heavy rains that could produce strong winds hitting the Augusta area today as a cold front moved through the region.

However, meteorologist Dan Miller, of the National Weather Service in Columbia, said this morning the threat diminished overnight as the front shifted its threat to the eastern Carolinas.

As of 7:30 a.m. Augusta’s Bush Field had already recorded slightly more than one inch of rain. Miller said another quarter inch is possible before 10 a.m. when the threat is expected to move outside the Augusta area.

A few light showers and winds are possible later this afternoon and evening but the activity is not expected to be severe, he said.

Question Now is

Will the CORP OF ENGINEERS continue a reduced water release to save water and fill up our water supply?

Or increase the flow to appease the EPA & River Crowd?

Boy, they missed that one bad!!!

They play to much with their "models". Talk about the weather and can do nothing about it. Meteorologist or media personality? Both can read downloaded someone else "model predictions". Another antique of local TV we can do without. We can make our own models with our Ipads.
