I am en route to the Space Coast this morning! For those of you who haven’t heard, I was one of only 20 members of the media granted permission to view the GOES-S satellite at Kennedy Space Center. The satellite is set to launch in March. I’ll be sharing much more about this incredible experience! Many of you have heard of GOES-16? That satellite covers eastern North America. The satellite I’m going to see will be GOES-17 and will cover western North America.
Now, as for your forecast on the plateau…you can expect another round of light snow. A winter weather advisory has been issued for 1-2 inches of snow for tonight and Tuesday morning. I think this will be another light event, but it only takes a little bit of snow to make roads slick.
After this snow, expect the coldest temperatures we’ve seen yet! We should see many locations dip below zero by Wednesday morning, and close to zero Thursday morning. A warming trend is expected for the weekend, with highs in the 50s! But, don’t get used to it because temps will plunge again by the end of the weekend.
You all have a great day and I’ll be sending greetings from the Space Coast soon!
