Main threats

Just be aware that the wind advisory has been extended through noon. Winds could gust to 35 mph at times. Be prepared for possible sporadic power outages.

Summary

This morning’s gusty winds should began to relax during the afternoon. Cold air will also start moving in, leaving us with temps in the 30s by sundown. Skies will gradually clear out.

Thanksgiving is looking really good! I think that good weather will hold through Black Friday, too, although skies may be cloudier.

By Saturday, more wind and rain is expected, with more wind advisories possible. It still looks like the severe weather will stay to our west and south. Rainfall amounts will likely be around one inch for much of the plateau with this system.

Sunday looks cloudy and cooler, before another system drops in Sunday night. With temps in the upper 20s/lower 30s, we may see some light snow with that system by Monday morning. Right now it doesn’t look like a big deal, but I’ll certainly keep an eye on it. If the system tracks farther north, we’ll be left with just cloudy skies and flurries.

Records

Folks in New York City got quite the scare on this day in 1883. The brilliant red glow of the sunset prompted numerous calls to the New York fire department, which deployed numerous fire engines across the city, thinking there was an enormous fire breaking out. The red glow of the sunset was made more spectacular because of red ash in the atmosphere from the Krakatoa volcano eruption in Indonesia the previous August.

The red ash caused the sky to glow red well beyond the sunset, causing even more people to think the city was indeed burning.

NASA Knowledge

Yale astronomers have taken a new close-up image of a comet that is known as 2l/Borisov. The comet was first spotted this summer and is hurling toward Earth. Don’t worry, though, the closest it will come is 190 million miles away.

Scientists think the comet was ejected into interstellar space as a consequence of a near-collision with a planet in its original solar system.

The image below was taken with a spectrometer in Hawaii. The image on the right compares the comet’s size with Earth. Sure makes ya feel small, right?

News

The big news today is the historic storm system that came ashore the coast of Oregon last night. That’s about as close to a hurricane as those folks can get! What a storm.

A large portion of the rest of the country is dealing with high winds and/or heavy snow. It’s not the best of weeks for Thanksgiving travelers.
