On This Day in Wx History

1896 – The temperature at Kipp, Montana, rose 30 degrees in just seven minutes, and 80 degrees in a matter of a few hours. A thirty-inch snow cover was melted in half a day.

Almanac

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High: 86° at Boca Rotan, North Palm Beach, & Immokalee, Florida  

Low: -30° at Peter Sinks, Utah

Today’s National Wx Hazards

Accumulating snowfall can be found across the Ohio Valley, stretching into the southern Appalachians. More accumulating snowfall can be found all along the Front Range of the Rockies.

Tomorrow’s National Wx Hazards

Another wintry system spins up across the southern plains, producing mixed precip for many and accumulating snowfall for some. That snow will have the best chance of accumulating across western Kansas and Oklahoma, as well as across eastern Colorado. More snow can be found across New England.

 Weather Shots

The 2020 hurricane season officially ended at midnight last night. That doesn’t mean there won’t be any more storms, as Ma Nature sometimes ignores our deadlines (ha). I would go as far as to say that the season is over….for the most part. Here are the numbers. What a historic season it has been!

And with that, the sun set on another hurricane season yesterday. Bon voyage, Hurricane Season 2020!

NASA Nerdology 

This is Eros, the first-known near-Earth asteroid (NEA) accidentally discovered by Gustav Witt in 1898. A century later, it became the first asteroid to be orbited by a spacecraft!
