On This Day in Wx History
2011 – New York City received one inch of snow, the earliest they had received that much snow since records began. It was also only the fourth times since the Civil War snow had fallen in New York City in October. The storm also left over three million people without power, including 62% of the customers of Connecticut Light and Power.
Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes
High: 93° at Avon Park, Florida
Low: -2° at Kremmling & Walden, Colorado
Zeta remains a tropical storm this morning, with winds of 60 mph and higher gusts. The storm is near Asheville, North Carolina this morning. The storm will bring winds of over 70 mph to the higher elevations of the mountains today. A remarkable storm, indeed.
While Zeta races off to the northeast, we already have another area to monitor in the Caribbean in the coming days. That system would likely move into Central America and not be a threat to the US. If that becomes a named storm, it will be Eta and will make 2020 the most active season on record.
Today’s National Wx Hazards
The remnants of Zeta will continue to combine with a storm system to produce heavy rainfall across parts of the eastern US, Ohio Valley, and even back around southwest Missouri. Meanwhile, snowflakes are flying across the Northeast and snowflakes may accumulate across North Dakota and Minnesota today. Quiet the variety of weather for this November day!
Tomorrow’s National Wx Hazards
Finally, a quiet day with no widespread hazardous weather expected.
8 – 14 Day Outlook
While much of the country looks to be warm and dry in this period of time (Nov 5 – 11), guidance is now suggesting a cooler and wetter pattern evolving for the Pacific Northwest and northern plains.
This was the scene in New Orleans, as the eye of Hurricane Zeta passed over. The late evening sun made the sky glow orange-red. This photo was taken in the Garden District of New Orleans by Dylan Federico (@DylanFedericoWX).
It was during this week in October of 1969 that NASA announced that Boeing was awarded a contract to design and build the Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV). Their motorized “Moon buggy” made it possible for the Apollo 15, 16, and 17 astronauts to extend the range of their lunar exploration activities! Also, I want one….
