Hurricane Epsilon continues to spin out to sea, while an area of disturbed weather in the Caribbean now gains our full attention. That system is expected to become Tropical Storm Zeta by the end of the weekend. The storm could threaten parts of the Gulf Coast early next week. When we get Zeta, we will tie the record-breaking 2005 season for most number of named storms in a single season.
Today’s National Wx Hazards
Accumulating snowfall can be found across the northern plains today, with some areas breaking October snowfall records (if they haven’t already!).
Tomorrow’s National Wx Hazards
More snow for the northern plains!
