Meteorologist Mark’s Severe Wx Concern

Threats

Accumulating snowfall is looking likely for Monday night across the plateau. At this time, accumulations of around one inch seem reasonable. If moisture moves out a little quicker, we’ll see closer to one-half inch. If moisture lingers longer, we could see up to a couple of inches. Again, snowfall of around one inch seems like the most reasonable expectation at this time. I’ll keep you posted

On This Day in Wx History

1988 – Thunderstorms spawned five tornadoes in North Carolina during the early morning hours. A powerful tornado ripped through one of the most densely populated areas of Raleigh, destroying hundreds of homes and damaging thousands more. The tornado killed four persons along its 83-mile track, and injured 154 others. Total damage was estimated at more than 77 million dollars.

Almanac

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High: 92° at Falcon Lake, Texas 

Low: -18° at Peter Sinks, Utah

Tropical Outlook

The National Hurricane Center continues to monitor two areas in the Atlantic for possible tropical development. The good news is that both areas only have a slight chance for development, and both areas will stay away from the US.

Today’s National Wx Hazards

Severe thunderstorms will threaten the coastlines of Texas and Louisiana, while snowflakes accumulate farther north across eastern New Mexico. Snow flakes will also be flying across portions of the northern Rockies, as well as across parts of New England.

Tomorrow’s National Wx Hazards

A rain and snow mix will be found across the Ohio and Tennessee valleys by Sunday night.
