It continues to look like we will have Tropical Storm Eta by the end of the weekend in the Caribbean. It also continues to look like it will move into Central America, far from the US mainland.
Today’s National Wx Hazards
There’s nothing spooky about this Halloween weather forecast! All is pretty darn quiet across the country today.
Tomorrow’s National Wx Hazards
A strong cold front will bring a variety of precip to the eastern US, though much of that will stay light and non-hazardous. The only exception could be some accumulating snowfall around the Great Lakes region.
8 – 14 Day Outlook
Warm and dry in the eastern US, and cooler and wetter across much of the western US. That seems to be the evolving pattern for the second week of November. Our area looks very warm and very dry.
Talk about scary and beautiful at the same time! This was a satellite view of Super Typhoon Goni yesterday over the Pacific. The storm rapidly intensifies into the most powerful storm on Earth, with winds of 180 mph and gusts to over 200 mph. The storm is expected to weaken before hitting the Philippines tomorrow. Never the less, the storm is expected to be devastating.
