News release: (Afternoon 112613)

    Good Afternoon:

    The storm continues to strengthen and after a brief conversation with the NWS I have the following update. The briefing from this morning is still valid with two extensions of interest for us: They have extended through 9:00am tomorrow morning the slight risk of severe storms and we can expect sustained winds near 20mph with gust to just over 30mph possible through 10:00am and then both very gradually tapering through Thursday morning.

    Please remember we will still have winds throughout the day on Thursday with wind chill values after dark in the 25 degree range by midnight.

    Please stay weather aware and if you are driving to work in the morning use caution and watch for downed limbs and small trees on the road ways.

News release: (Morning 112613)

    Good Morning to All:

    I have attached the NWS Weather Advisory I just received. This storm is already producing Ice, Sleet and Snow in the Mountains of our state. The briefing is very clear about our possible weather conditions. I do not to clarify some points so you will have the necessary information to make sound travel decisions if they involve travel tonight.

    The main part of this Nor'easter like storm will impact us from about 7:00pm tonight through 7:00am tomorrow morning. That is when we will have the greatest threat for high wind gust, heavy rain and a possible tornado, yes I said tornado or storms that produce winds in excess of 60mph gust or straight line winds. It is possible there will be power outages in some areas of the County and there definitely could be limbs and small trees laying on our road ways. Please use caution when traveling this evening or early tomorrow morning. Please remember to take precautions to ensure the safety of your pets and domestic animals during these events. Please ensure all of these four legged friends have adequate identification tags on them should they become separated from your care.

    First Responders, please take all necessary appropriate driving precautions during this time period. There will be some periods of rain on Wednesday and temperatures will begin to drop as the front passes. Cold Temperatures and even colder wind chills will be seen Wednesday evening and throughout the remainder of the week. As is always the case with Nor'easters some flooding of roads could take place along the water's edge anywhere in the County.

    Travel with caution and keep an ear to your weather radios and First Responders please report all power outages and road hazards as appropriate through normal channels.

    I will provide more updates as they become available.

    Thank You for your service to the citizens of Beaufort County.
