Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Thoughts (New!)

A heavier snow band developed across the north end of Cumberland County and southern Fentress county, giving some of us more snow than others. The forecast is for one half inch or less, but some of us are going to have at least an inch. These southern systems are always worth keeping a close eye on but this one is a bit of an odd one. It brought snow to areas of the southern plains and Deep South that haven’t seen snow in years.

Wx Threats for the Next 7 Days

Look for some light snow across the area today, with accumulation possible for many of us. Those accumulations should stay under one inch, though isolated areas will see more. Be careful if you’re out and about.

Flooding rains are expected on the coastal regions of the Pacific Northwest, as a powerful storm system moves in. That system will also bring heavy snows to the mountains of that region.

 Weather Shots

I took this picture this morning, as the snow was really coming down. A heavier snow band has set up across the north end of the county, giving us quite a beautiful snow! I’m at one inch at 9:00 a.m.

NASA Nerdology 

In January of 1968, Surveyor 7 launched enroute to the lunar highlands. This was the final mission of the Surveyor Program in which robotic spacecraft gathered data about the lunar surface for the Apollo missions. Seen here is Surveyor 3, visited by Apollo 12 Commander Pete Conrad.
