SATURDAY MORNING WEATHER REPORT

I'm the JLT weatherman.

My trophy wife Kay is not about to get up at 4am to decide whether to cancel or not cancel tours on days of uncertain weather. Uncertain weather, it seems more often than not, is the middle name of this odd and spectacular meteorological ecotone formed by the confluence of the Great Blue Wall and the grand inland sea of Lake Jocassee. On this fine Saturday morning I am awakened by lightning at 3:45. Will it clear by tour time? I am the only one around to answer that question. Our guests for the day will need to know by 7am if today’s tours will go. Oh well, it’s only 6:45. That leaves me a full 15 minutes to second guess one of the most dynamic ecosystems in the temperate latitudes! Plenty of time. :)

SATURDAY EVENING WEATHER REPORT: As the quote “change is the only constant” is often used to describe Jocassee, so might be “the only thing  predictable is the unpredictable”. That would fit today’s late morning and afternoon. By 10am the sky was a cloudless Carolina blue, and now, towards the late afternoon, scattered clouds dot the sky as light winds gently blow.  A lovely sunset is the forecast.
