No major threats in sight.
The blog may be lacking some things over the next few days. I’m not sure how busy NASA will have us, or how much time I will have to devote to the blog.
Look for the threat of rain showers to be hanging over our heads today. That threat will persist right on through the weekend. Precip may even end as some snow showers sometime Sunday.
The first February tornado on record for the state of Nebraska hit on this day in 2012. The EF-0 was on the ground for about six minutes and traveled three miles. Patches of snow were still on the ground! The twister did no damage, as it stayed over open range land.

One year ago today
It was a wet day this time last year! By the time the day was through, 1.09 inches of rain had fallen. The high was 53 degrees and the low was 47, so all the precip was liquid. Winds were gusty from the south through noon, but then calmed considerably as light, steady rain settled in.
Sky viewing conditions tonight: POOR
Moon phase: Waning Crescent, 31% illumination
It’s a big day for me! The NASA events begin this morning and today promises to be busy. Tomorrow will be even busier, though! I’ll keep you all posted!
