Clouds will mar otherwise warm weekend

Posted March 12, 2010

— Clocks will roll forward one hour this Sunday to mark the start of Daylight Saving Time. Meanwhile, a cold front will be rolling into the area, creating a damp, cloudy weekend.

"Tonight we will be watching a cold front that will approach the area late. It  could bring a round of showers and perhaps some storms," said WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner.

Saturday could see some showers in the morning and possibly a storm in the afternoon, but it will be warm, with highs will be in the upper 60s to 70 degrees.

"Some drier air is scooting into the region (Saturday night), so the overnight lows will be cooler than what we have seen over the past few nights," Gardner said. "Now despite the drier air coming in, our weather will still remain unsettled for the coming days."

The chance for rain returns on Sunday and temperatures drop into the 50s. The partly cloudy and seasonable pattern appears to hold into the work week.

    Well, here's part of MY problem.

    The headline says, "Clouds will mar otherwise warm weekend."
    The 2nd line in the story says, "Meanwhile, a cold front will be rolling into the area, creating a damp, cloudy weekend."

    So, it will either be a warm weekend, according to the headline, or a damp, cloudy weekend caused by a cold front, according to the story.

    And I'm not supposed to be confused by this? Okay, maybe I should check weather underground on the internet for the real scoop.

    Muggy Saturday, Damp Sunday.

    I don't get it. If you don't like how WRAL reports things, why continue to watch/listen/read?

    I am thrilled that the weather has finally warmed up!

    I like clouds. They will not "mar" my weekend.

    WRAL weather is just weather. It's been happening awhile now. You can look it up if you have a book. There's no need to dream up headlines that imply weather is the enemy. If you get more than 3 days of anything you complain. We need rain. We need sun. We need heat and we need cold. It's called "Nature." I'll never forget driving past WRAL on Western Bvld. in a downpour listening to Greg telling us "today is another bright and sunny day." Typical.
