Meteorologist Mark’s Severe Wx Concern

Accumulating snowfall may occur Monday night on the plateau. It’s too early to say just how much may accumulate, if any, so stay tuned!
On This Day in Wx History
1925- F3 tornado touches down near Charlotte (Dickson County). Two farms, six miles apart, lost buildings. Timber is downed between the two farms. On the first farm, a two story log home is blown apart. Logs were driven into the ground 100 yards away. Damage is estimated at $10,000. Dickson County is located just west of Nashville.
Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

Low: -12° at Peter Sinks, Utah
Here it is Thanksgiving and the National Hurricane Center STILL has two areas to watch in the Atlantic. Thankfully, neither area has much of a chance of developing into a named storm and neither would ever be a threat to the US.
Today’s National Wx Hazards
A strong cold front will bring unsettled weather to the Gulf Coast and eastern seaboard, with freezing rain falling across Maine and New Hampshire. Elsewhere, snowflakes are flying on the US/Canada border, as well as across parts of the northern Rockies and the Four Corners region.
Tomorrow’s National Wx Hazards
Severe thunderstorms will threaten parts of the Texas and Louisiana coastline, while snowflakes fly in the colder air of New Mexico and Arizona. More snowflakes will be flying in the Cascades of Washington state.
This AMAZING lightning shot is from all the way down under…from Australia! Thunderstorms there this week have been putting on quite the show. Jason H (@OreboundImages) snapped this photo and captured this amazing display of one of Nature’s deadlier forces. He tweeted, “Some incredible lightning again tonight as a series of vigorous thunderstorms moved through the region just after sunset, bringing heavy rain and some fairly strong winds.”
NASA’s Galileo spacecraft captured this image of Europa in the final days of November of 1999. This 12-frame mosaic view of the moon’s Jupiter-facing hemisphere shows the many lines crisscrossing its surface. Powerful tides may have created these icy fractures.
