Tuesday night: Bitter cold air.
We have some flurries flying around out there this morning! I’m not looking for much of any accumulation. Some of us will see a dusting and that’s exactly what I had at my house this morning!
Thankfully, those gusty winds of last night have subsided! It will remain breezy today and that will make it feel much colder outside. These clouds will be slow to move out but we may see a peak of sun this afternoon/evening.
This cold air will be with us for the first half of this week. Tuesday night looks to be the coldest night of the week.
By Thursday, our next storm system arrives and that will set us on a very active weather pattern through the weekend. I’m not seeing much of a chance of wintry precip but we may be dealing with storms by Saturday. I’ll keep an eye on it.
There are some concerns for severe storms in the Deep South for Saturday. We have a very powerful and dynamic storm system that will be moving through our part of the country this weekend. I think the worst of the storms will stay south of Tennessee, but it’s worth keeping an eye on. Hard to believe we are talking about storms when it’s 31 degrees with snow flurries right now! This is liable to be a winter of wild weather, folks.
On this day in 1896 a major snowstorm hit the northern Plains. It was a Thanksgiving Day blizzard for North Dakota. the strong winds ushered in one of the coldest November cold waves in that state’s history. Over in Pokegama Dam, Michigan, the temperature dipped to 45 degrees below zero! Yikes!
On this day in 1988 an outbreak of severe weather led to five tornadoes across Mississippi. The storms caused millions of dollars in damages. Keep in mind that November is the peak of the secondary severe weather season that occurs in the fall in the South. They’re liable to see severe weather this coming weekend.
This Time Last Year
One year ago today we had a high of 54 degrees and a morning low of 30 degrees. There was no precipitation. The highest wind gust was 16 mph.
For TAP employees……
I will be holding a training session for how to use weatherTAP in the on Thursday, November 29th, at 1:30 in the large WebDev conference room on the third floor. This training is mainly for new employees that want to learn how to track severe weather with our RadarLab HD+ product. However, if you are not a new employee and would like to earn how to use RadarLab HD+, then you are invited as well. This training session should last about 30 minutes.
