Strong Storms Tonight - 03/28/14

Sitting here with a few minutes to spare, so I thought I'd update the severe threat on the blog...

A line of storms has formed west of middle Tennessee and will move through this evening.  The good news?  After analyzing data and watching radar/satellite loops, it appears this won't be too much of a threat for us overnight.  The bulk of severe weather (winds 60mph+ and quarter size hail+) will stay south.  We're left with heavy downpours, gusty winds around 40 mph and small hail.

Showers and a few strong thunderstorms will push through overnight and linger into Saturday morning.  Slowly but surely, rain will push out Saturday afternoon and the clouds will clear.

Do you have plans for Sunday?  Great!  Sunday is looking b-e-a-utiful!  Plenty of sunshine and highs in the low 60s.  I think a bike ride around Percy Warner Park may be in order.  Enjoy the weekend!

ESCALATOR-PANTS

SOMERVILLE, Mass. (AP) -- It's awfully cold in the Boston area to go without pants. Transit officials say a commuter riding the "T" lost his trousers to an escalator. A spokesman for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority tells the Boston Herald the man's pants got caught in the escalator. The commuter wasn't hurt, but he was left standing in his shorts while his trousers were stuck at the bottom of the escalator. Transit officials are urging commuters to be mindful of loose clothing.

DOG BREEDS-NYC

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Big Apple is giving little Frenchies some love. The French bulldog is now the most popular breed in New York City. The American Kennel Club says the flat-faced, bat-eared little dogs move past the bulldog to the top spot. The AKC says the rest of the top five in NYC are Labrador retrievers, German shepherds and golden retrievers. Nationally, Labs stay number-one for a record 24th year.

COCA-COLA BOTTLE

ATLANTA (AP) -- It's the real thing -- but is it real art? The curvy Coca-Cola bottle is being celebrated by an Atlanta art museum. The High Museum is opening an exhibit tomorrow to mark the 100th anniversary of the iconic Coke bottle. Visitors will be able to see original designs, a prototype of the 1915 bottle and the work of artists who have been inspired by the now-classic bottle. "The Coca-Cola Bottle: An American Icon at 100" runs through October 4.

NEW BABY ORCA

SEATTLE (AP) -- Scientists are seeing the splash of little whale fins. A third baby orca has been spotted off the coast of Washington state. Brad Hanson, a biologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, says the baby killer whale looks great and is very active. It's the third baby born to whale pods in recent months in the area. But the experts warn the orca population is still dangerously low.
