While our attention has been riveted on several major stories: Libya, New Zealand and Wisconsin, it's important to remember that millions of our viewers in the South are about to be in the path of an angry and churning weather system. It is actually shaped like a trailing tornado cloud...an intense tail of a moving front bringing severe weather to several places, and the Weather Channel is ready for what the storms may bring.
And we watched as the Shuttle Discovery launched today, one last time for the spacecraft that took John Glenn back into space. During takeoff, the fuel burned off could fill two average size swimming pools every minute. It never ceases to be a magnificent sight.
We hope you can join us tonight.
