Unsettled weather across the Upper Midwest and Northeast, but hazardous weather is not expected.

 On This Day

On this day in 1927, an outbreak of tornadoes from Oklahoma to Indiana caused 81 deaths and 25 million dollars damage. A tornado (possibly two tornadoes) cut an eight-mile long path across St. Louis Missouri, to Granite City Illinois, killing 79 persons. The damage path at times was a mile and a quarter in width. The storm followed a similar path to tornadoes which struck in 1871, 1896, and 1959.

Long Range Outlook 

Dry weather prevails over much of the country next week, with warm temperatures for the western US and cool temperatures for the eastern US.

NASA Nerdology

NASA and SpaceX now are targeting 1:40 a.m. CDT Saturday, Oct. 31, for the launch of the agency’s SpaceX Crew-1 mission with astronauts to the International Space Station. What a treat from NASA!

Astronauts Michael HopkinsVictor Glover, and Shannon Walker of NASA and Soichi Noguchi of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) will be carried to the station on the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft on a Falcon 9 rocket from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The launch will be the first time an international crew will fly aboard a NASA-certified, commercially-owned and operated American rocket and spacecraft from American soil.

Following the launch, the Crew-1 astronauts are scheduled to arrive at the space station for a six-month science mission aboard the orbiting laboratory.

You all have a great day!
