You've probably heard by now that the national drought will likely impact food prices for the next few months, mainly because of the damage to our nation's corn crops. I found an interesting website through NASA, and on the site you can see where crop struggles are the worst:
While that is going on, I'm hearing thunder outside out studios! We are getting some much needed rain, but it just isn't widespread enough to put much of a dent into our drought! It may help some of your back yards though! As of 3:45PM, the storms are pretty strong and we've had a report of a tree on a car in Spartanburg. We'll be monitoring those storms closely through the afternoon. Fox Carolina Studios was hit by lightning at 2:30 today when that fast-developing t-storm popped over the east side of Greenville.
Thursday will be a lot like today, then Friday we should get some more widespread rain coverage, along with some cooler temps!
