7/29 - 7pm - Comings and Goings

There are only 9 days left until I go down to Mississippi State University. It's extremely exciting, but at the same time I'll miss being in Louisville. In any case, I'm happy to be at one of the best places in the nation for meteorology!

Meteorologist Tom Wills officially retires from WAVE TV on Friday after 40 years of service. In honor of his career, the Louisville Bats will be hosting a "Tom Wills Night" during their game against the Toledo Mud Hens starting at 7:05pm tomorrow. It looks like there may be some storms in the area during the game tomorrow, but it should be a great time either way! Tom Wills' replacement will be announced on Friday morning during WAVE 3 Sunrise.

Kentucky's new Mesonet system (a network of automated weather reporting stations) is slowly coming online. This is great for Kentucky because it will allow for greater monitoring of micro-scale weather phenomena and should give residents in rural areas better access to current conditions in the region.
