Moving into the middle of spring we see the weather beginning to change into the summer pattern of afternoon showers. We have learned that when the prediction for rain is less than 50% for the day, rain is unlikely, or spotty and short lived at worst.
Also want to remind everyone that in North Carolina take it easy on the 4-lanes, especially on NC 28 and US19 near Bryson City and Andrews. Saw a large group pulled over the other day on 28. Easy pickings for troopers. Wide open roads with 55 or 60 mph limit is tempting to add a little extra, but you take your chances.
