Threats

Meteorologist Mark’s Snow Scale

Confidence is now high that we will see little to no wintry accumulation with the mid-week system.

On This Day in Wx History

1924 – The temperature at Helena, Montana plunged 79 degrees in 24 hours, and 88 degrees in 34 hours! The mercury plummeted from 63 above to 25 below zero. At Fairfield, Montana the temperature plunged 84 degrees in just 12 hours, from 63 at noon to 21 below zero at midnight. Dang! That’s a shock to the system!

More snowfall can be found across northwest Minnesota, the northern Great Lakes region, and across northern New England. A rain/snow mix affects an area stretching from Tennessee to New England.

Tomorrow’s National Wx Hazards

An ice event threatens western North Carolina and southwest Virginia, while accumulating snowfall affects portions of the central and southern plains, as well as the northern Rockies.
