    I am @AccuFrank on Twitter, which is the most reliable way to get alerted when I post new stuff. There's also this Facebook fan page thingie, which is not particularly reliable for that but it's good for posting little things where 140 characters won't do them justice.

    • A big soaking is on the way!

      A soaking rain next few days, just what we need!

      Frank Strait - December 03, 2016, 11:53:40 AM EST

      A storm moving into Texas this weekend will slowly drift through the South this coming week and tap into some tropical moisture. This will bring a lot of places a good soaking again, which is just what the doctor ordered! There will be some severe weather to deal with, however.

    • Another good soaking is on the way to a large part of the South!

      More rain coming for the next week, colder next weekend

      Frank Strait - December 02, 2016, 10:20:47 AM EST

      A slow-moving storm system will bring another soaking rain to a lot of the South Friday through early next week. After that, a front will bring one more chance for rain late next week followed by the first real cold spell of the season next weekend. The following week might be fun for some winter weather lovers.

      Active weather pattern next seven to 10 days, hooray!

      Frank Strait - November 30, 2016, 9:02:57 AM EST

      It looks as though three storm systems will affect the South over the next week or so, which will produce some more desperately needed rainfall and lessen the wildfire risk. Unfortunately, with the rain will come more severe storm and tornado potential.

      More needed rain is on the way!

      Frank Strait - November 29, 2016, 5:10:54 PM EST

      The front moving through the Southeast is just the first in a potential series of rainmakers, and thank God for that!

    • Frank Strait

      Dry through this weekend, then some rain chances next week

      Frank Strait - November 29, 2016, 5:09:02 PM EST

      We stay dry through this weekend, so at least there will be good weather for the holiday weekend.

    • GFS model rainfall forecast next week

      After Wednesday, dry for another week

      Frank Strait - November 29, 2016, 5:06:42 PM EST

      Most of the Southeast will stay entirely dry for another week, but a storm currently over the southern Plains states will send some rain into parts of the Southeast.

    • Frank Strait

      East Coast rain tonight; no more rain until the end of the week

      Frank Strait - November 13, 2016, 2:00:00 PM EST

      Some decent rain and even rumbles of thunder will affect areas along the East Coast tonight into tomorrow. But, the areas where the drought is most severe will stay bone-dry. A front moving through later this week and this weekend has a chance to bring many areas some rain but it may not be much. We're watching a feature in the Pacific for development and there remains concern for an Atlantic development this weekend.

    • Frank Strait

      Most places stay dry until later next week

      Frank Strait - November 12, 2016, 1:15:00 PM EST

      A weak storms system will take shape over the Carolinas and Georgia tonight and head north, bringing some welcome rain to some, but not enough to put any dent in the drought where it's been extremely dry. Most places will remain dry until a front arrives later next week or next weekend. That feature may not cause a lot of rain, either. We still are concerned about one more tropical development in the Caribbean.
