If  you recall, we had a major out break of severe weather and tornadoes on November 29th last year.  This was the Tuesday right after Thanksgiving.  A total of 6 tornadoes were confirmed in the aftermath of the rough weather that swept across the WCBI-TV coverage area.  We were on the air from about 4:30 p.m. until 1:37 am during the duration of the event making sure all of you stayed safe and informed.

The quiet and tornado free weather pattern we’re locked into right now appears as though it will last through the end of the month and into the start of December.  The only chance of any rain whatsoever during the next week or so appears to be Thursday, November 30th. Even that is a bit of a stretch.  The Storm Prediction Center is not expecting any widespread severe weather for the next 7 days.
