Meteorologist Mark’s Severe Wx Concern

Threats

Widespread frost/light freeze conditions are likely Friday night. This will end the growing season for many of us on the plateau and throughout the Upper Cumberlands.

Scattered frost is possible again Saturday night.

Hay Wx Forecast

The Hay Wx Forecast will resume when spring hay cutting begins. I hope you have enjoyed this section and I look forward to forecasting hay weather again next spring! I have plans for making the hay weather forecast better than ever next year!

On This Day in Wx History

1880 – A violent, early-season blizzard raked Minnesota and the Dakotas. Winds gusted to 70 mph at Yankton, South Dakota. Snow drifts 10 to 15 feet high were reported in northwest Iowa and southeast South Dakota. Saint Paul, Minnesota, reported a barometric pressure of 28.65 inches on the 16th. Railroads were blocked by drifts of snow which remained throughout the severe winter to follow. Gales did extensive damage to ships on the Great Lakes. 

Almanac

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High: 108° at Winterhaven, California 

Low: 17° at Climax, Colorado

Tropical Outlook

The tropics are trying to become a bit more active, but none of these areas of concern look to menacing at this time. There are indications that a system will form in the Caribbean in about a week or so. That is an area to always keep a close eye on this time of year. The tropics usually try to get a bit more active toward the end of October (final hoorah?). I’ll keep you posted!

Today’s National Wx Hazards

Lots of unsettled weather can be found in the eastern US, as a strong cold front moves through, but hazardous weather is not expected. Notice the snowflakes flying across the UP of Michigan and the northern plains!

Tomorrow’s National Wx Hazards

Snowflakes fly across the northern US, where some of that snow will actually accumulate! Notice the snowflakes in New England, too. Tis the season!

 8 – 14 Day Outlook

Colder weather dives into the central US, while warmer weather tries to hold on to the eastern and western US. Clouds and showers may accompany that cooler weather for many.

Remember this from October 13, 2012? This was when Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner became the first person to break the sound barrier while free-falling! Watch his record-breaking fall:

You all have a great day!
