Almanac

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High: 109° at Palm Springs, California 

Low: at Daniel, Wyoming

Tropical Outlook

It looks like we’re about to have another named storm out in the Atlantic. It’s unclear how/if this will affect the US in the coming week. Another area to monitor in the Caribbean could eventually swing into the Gulf and cause the Gulf Coast some problems, but there is a high amount of uncertainty with that forecast. An active hurricane season may end on a busy note!

Today’s National Wx Hazards

A strong cold front will cause unsettled weather in the eastern US today, while snowflakes fly across the Upper Midwest and northern plains behind this front.

Tomorrow’s National Wx Hazards

Accumulating snowfall is possible across the northern plains. A wildfire danger can be found across eastern New Mexico. All in all, widespread hazardous weather is not expected across the nation.

 8 – 14 Day Outlook

Very unseasonably cold weather is expected for the northern plains in this period. A trough in the eastern US may lead to increased rainfall and that rain will be chilly! With this type of pattern, snow may be falling across the northern plains in this timeframe.

Weather Shots

I shot this photo yesterday evening, as a cold front was approaching the plateau from the west.

NASA Nerdology 

I shared this on Facebook last evening but it’s worthy of a share here. An AMAZING shot of the International Space Station transiting the moon during daylight! Andrew McCarthy (@AJamesMcCarthy) writes, “Yesterday morning (Wednesday) I captured an incredibly brief and rare event, the ISS transiting the 4% illuminated moon during the daytime.” What an amazing shot!!!

You all have a great day!
