Meteorologist Mark’s Vlog in a Flash

Thursday: Partly to mostly cloudy. A chance for an overnight shower.
Friday: Partly cloudy and much cooler. Frost likely overnight.
Saturday: Morning frost, followed by lots of sunshine. More scattered frost possible overnight.

Meteorologist Mark’s Severe Wx Concern
A stable airmass will prevent severe t-storms from developing.
Widespread frost and light freeze conditions are likely area-wide Friday night and Saturday morning. Scattered frost will be possible again Saturday night, as well.
Hay Wx Forecast
Aside from a slight chance for a shower Thursday night, the Hay Day Outlook is looking good! I may have to put a shower or two on Monday or Tuesday, but the extended outlook beyond Sunday is very iffy right now.
On This Day in Wx History
1984 – Dense fog contributed to a 118 vehicle accident on I-94, just south of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It was the seventh day of an eight day stretch of dense fog. At the time of the accident the visibility was reportedly close to zero.
Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes
High: 108° at Brawley, California
Low: 15° at Grand Lake, Colorado
That disturbance in the Atlantic is still holding on! Sometimes these little systems can be very persistent. I’ll keep an eye on it.
Today’s National Wx Hazards
Unsettled weather can be found across the northern tier of the US, but hazardous weather is not expected. A wildfire danger can be found across northern California, eastern Colorado, and parts of New Mexico and western Texas.
Tomorrow’s National Wx Hazards
Lots of unsettled weather can be found in the eastern US, associated with a cold front, but hazardous weather is not expected.
8 – 14 Day Outlook
Cooler and drier weather can be found across much of the US in this period. Our area is looking very pleasant.
The official winter weather forecast is out! Well, not really (ha). Seriously, I’ll have my winter forecast prediction by the end of this month. Stay tuned!
This is a picture of some of Saturn’s moons and rings. The large circular object in the center of the image is Titan, the largest moon of Saturn and one of the most intriguing objects in the entire Solar System. The dark spot in the center is the main solid part of the moon. The bright surrounding ring is atmospheric haze above Titan, gas that is scattering sunlight to a camera operating onboard the robotic Cassini spacecraft. Cutting horizontally across the image are the rings of Saturn, seen nearly edge on. At the lower right of Titan is Enceladus, a small moon of Saturn. Since the image was taken pointing nearly at the Sun, the surfaces of Titan and Endeladus appear in silhouette, and the rings of Saturn appear similar to a photographic negative. Now if you look really really closely at Enceladus, you can see a hint of icy jets shooting out toward the bottom of the image. It is these jets that inspired future proposals to land on Enceladus, burrow into the ice, and search for signs of life.
