Meteorologist Mark’s Severe Wx Concern

Threats

Widespread hazardous weather is not expected for the next seven days.

On This Day in Wx History

1977 – A slow moving storm produced five to nine inch rains across northern Georgia, causing the Toccoa Dam to burst. As the earthen dam collapsed, the waters rushed through the Toccoa Falls Bible College, killing three persons in the dorms. Thirty-eight persons perished at a trailer park along the stream.

Almanac

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High: 100° at Winterhaven, California 

Low: -2° at Estcourt Station, Maine

Tropical Outlook

It still looks like we will have a tropical storm to track by this weekend. Where that storm eventually goes is up for debate, but as you can see by the forecast track, it’s worth keeping a very close eye on. I’ll keep you posted!

Today’s National Wx Hazards

A few snowflakes are flying in the Northwest, but it’s a quiet day overall.

Tomorrow’s National Wx Hazards

A storm system across the western US will bring mountain snows and valley rains to that region. There will also be a serious wildfire danger developing across Nevada and portions of western Utah and Arizona, as dry and warm winds kick up south of that system.

 8 – 14 Day Outlook (Nov 12-18)

Guidance now shows the warmth in the eastern US intensifying during this period. The cold air out west just can’t seem to slide east….but it will with time. Also, these outlooks are now showing moisture increasing in the east.

Alabama farmer, Will Gilmer (@gilmerdairy), says, “I couldn’t resist stopping to take this photo when I was feeding cows earlier this morning.” We sure are glad he did! Gilmer added that he hopes we have a blessed day. We’re certainly started off blessed with this picture!

NASA Nerdology 

Orbiting more than 200 miles above Earth, the planet we call home, the crew aboard the International Space Station snapped this image of the Earth’s limb, or horizon, with the Sun’s glint beaming off the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay on Nov. 1, 2020. What a view!

You all have a great day!
