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!

CHRIS CHRISTIE

LIVINGSTON, NJ (AP) -- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is going back to his old high school gym today. It's for a political workout. Christie is officially entering a crowded Republican field for the presidential nomination. He'll be the 14th candidate to announce, with at least two more expected to join. Chistie will make his announcement at Livingston High School, where he once won a presidential election. But that was for class president.

PRE-CIVIL WAR BASEBALL CARD

NEW YORK (AP) -- It's worth a lot more than your old baseball cards. A card from the 1860s is going up for auction in a month. The pre-Civil War Brooklyn Atlantics team card has been in the same family for over 150 years. The seller is Florence Sasso, of Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Her great-great-uncle, Archibald McMahon, was an outfielder for the squad. He's pictured in the photo with eight teammates. Heritage Auctions estimates it could go for $50,000.

CALIFORNIA CHEERLEADERS

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- Pro cheerleaders are professionals. That's the gist of legislation passed by California lawmakers. The measure makes it clear that cheerleaders are employees of sports teams. It would require the teams to pay their cheerleaders at least the minimum wage. Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez says many teams treat their cheerleaders like glorified volunteers. The San Diego Democrat adds that cheerleaders deserve the same level of respect and dignity as other team employees. The bill now goes to Gov. Jerry Brown for his signature.

GREEK YOGURT-SCHOOLS

BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- School kids will have a yogurt option beginning this fall. Chobani says its Greek yogurt has been tapped by the feds as a meat substitute for school lunches. The U.S. Department of Agriculture selected Chobani after a successfull pilot program. Greek yogurt is a thicker style yogurt that has twice the protein of traditional yogurts and uses hormone-free milk.
