LACK OF RAIN IN THE REGION COULD CONTINUE
Over the past few weeks, precipitation in the listening area has decreased if not dropped off entirely. Jim Kramper, Warning Coordination Meteorologist at the National Weather Service Office in St. Louis, told WGEL that these dry conditions could stick around for a while.
Kramper said that most of the region is about an inch and a half below normal. At this time, there is no clear indicator of what’s going to happen over the next few months. The Climate Prediction Center has stated that at this time, the region has equal chances of seeing above normal, below normal, or normal precipitation, as well as temperatures. Stay tuned to WGEL 101.7 for all of your latest weather information.
There is a slight chance of rain today and tomorrow, but the chance is only 20-30%.

CITIZENS AND ORGANIZATIONS GATHER A SECOND TIME TO DISCUSS FIREWORKS
A group of citizens and representatives from various community organizations and the City of Greenville met for a second time Tuesday night to discuss the possibility of bringing a 4th of July fireworks celebration back to Greenville in 2014.
John Goldsmith initiated this effort as a Greenville citizen sad to see the fireworks cancelled this year and hopeful to see them re-instituted. Goldsmith said they had a very successful second meeting. They are looking to get more involvement from local civic organizations. He added that between now and their next meeting, they will become a more firmly defined organization.
The group will meet again to resume discussions on Tuesday, September 24th at 7:30 p.m. in the Bradford Community Building. All interested community members are encouraged to attend.
