Meteorologist Mark’s Severe Wx Concern

Threats

There will be a chance for some thunderstorms both tomorrow night and Wednesday. Severe storms are not expected.

Another storm system may move into the area this weekend. It is too soon to know if severe storms will be associated with that system, but current indications are that storms should stay below severe limits. I’ll keep an eye on it.

On This Day in Wx History

1913 – The freshwater fury , a rapidly deepening cyclone, caused unpredicted gales on the Great Lakes. Eight large ore carriers on Lake Erie sank, drowning 270 sailors. Cleveland, Ohio reported 17.4 inches of snow in 24 hours, and a total of 22.2 inches, both are all-time records for that location. During the storm, winds at Cleveland averaged 50 mph, with gusts to 79 mph. The storm produced wind gusts to 80 mph at Buffalo, New York, and buried Pickens, West Virginia under three feet of snow from the 9th-11th. 

Almanac

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High: 94° at Rio Grande Village, Texas 

Low: -4° at Neihart, Montana

Tropical Outlook

It continues to look like Tropical Storm Eta will become quite comfortable just hanging out in the eastern Gulf this week. The storm is expected to become a low-end hurricane today and will likely remain at that strength through Wednesday. With this forecast path, the storm will bring heavy rainfall and gusty winds for much of Florida this entire week.

And now we have not one but two areas to watch. The National Hurricane Center is now highlighting another system in the Caribbean that will have to be watched very closely. Hopefully this storm doesn’t hit the same areas of Central America that Eta did. The red-shaded area in the Atlantic will move toward Europe.

Today’s National Wx Hazards

Lots of wintry precip is falling today across the northern plains, Pacific Northwest, and even the mountains of the Southwest. A wintry day for those folks! Meanwhile, the weather map looks more summer-like in the Gulf, with Tropical Storm Eta threatening Florida with heavy rain and gusty winds.

Tomorrow’s National Wx Hazards

What a variety! Wintry weather threatens the Upper Midwest and Pacific Northwest, while a Tropical Storm/hurricane spins in the eastern Gulf.

 8 – 14 Day Outlook (Nov 16-22)

Next week is looking very warm and very dry for much of the country. Only the Pacific Northwest is looking cool and wet.

NASA Nerdology 

Though Robert Goddard is mostly known for his contributions space travel, his early work also included military uses. In November of 1918, Goddard demoed his idea for a rocket-propelled weapon to the US Armed Service.

You all have a great day!
