Meteorologist Mark’s Severe Wx Concern

Threats

Hazardous weather is not expected over the next week to ten days.

On This Day in Wx History

On this morning in 1981, Crossville recorded a morning low of 25 degrees. That tied the record low for this date.

Almanac

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High: 100° at Falcon Lake, Texas 

Low: -11° at Hinsdale, Montana

Tropical Outlook

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!

 8 – 14 Day Outlook

The pattern continues to look dry in the 8-14 day outlook, but temps are looking milder for much of the country. This is for Halloween and the first week of November.

Weather Shots

Kyle Brittain (@KyleTWN) snapped this beautiful picture of a snowflake in Calgary, Canada yesterday morning. Kyle noted that the snowflakes that were falling were nearly a quarter inch in diameter!

NASA Nerdology 

NASA has confirmed that the mission to land on Asteroid Bennu has been successful! The probe landed for several seconds, collected some dust and pebbles, and has now stowed away the sample for a safe return trip to Earth. The sample will arrive back here in 2023.

You all have a great day! Wish me luck, as I run the Oak Barrel half marathon in Lynchburg, TN this morning!
