Meteorologist Mark’s Severe Wx Concern

Threats

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

On This Day in Wx History

2005 – Severe thunderstorms produced a deadly tornado near Evansville, Indiana during the early morning hours of November 6. There were 23 fatalities from the tornado, with 19 of the deaths occurring in the Eastbrook Mobile Home Park, located just to the southeast of the city (Associated Press). It was Indiana’s deadliest tornado since the Super Outbreak on April 3, 1974.

I was in grad school at Western Kentucky University during this and drove up there in the days following. It was an absolute disaster zone and I will never forget what I saw.

Almanac

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High: 100° at Chino, California & Ramona, Arizona 

Low: 15° at Peter Sinks, Utah

Tropical Outlook

The forecast path of Eta takes the storm to southern Florida/Florida Keys by Sunday afternoon/night. The path is then forecast to curve westward and into the southern Gulf of Mexico. The storm is expected to remain a tropical storm, but there are indications it could become a cat 1 hurricane in the Gulf. Some of the models suggest we could see some rain from it by this time next week but that is very uncertain. I’ll keep a close eye on it.

Today’s National Wx Hazards

Some snowflakes are flying for some of the mountains of the western US, along with a serious wildfire danger in Nevada, western Utah, and northwestern Arizona. Meanwhile, the eastern US is quite.

Tomorrow’s National Wx Hazards

A winter storm will bring heavy snows to the mountains of the western US. The eastern US remains quiet. You’ll notice Tropical Storm Eta in the Caribbean.

 8 – 14 Day Outlook (Nov 13-19)

Heat continues in the eastern US, while cold air dominates the west. Perhaps the cold air will slide east for Thanksgiving? If this temperature outlook verifies, record heat will be possible east of the Mississippi River during this period.

Weather Shots

The national drought map is created each Tuesday but released to the public on Thursdays. This is the latest drought map. Notice how horrific the drought is out west. Yikes.

NASA Nerdology 

During the first week of November in 1928, Amelia Earhart visited NACA’s (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, NASA’s predecessor) Langley Research Center. On her tour, she had part of her coat sucked into the facility’s 11 Inch High Speed Tunnel!

You all have a great day!
