Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Concerns

Just be aware that rain showers could start out as a light wintry mix of freezing rain and snow after midnight Wednesday. This could last into the very early morning hours of Thursday. This should be a very narrow window of wintry opportunity, and this should be out of here and be just plain rain by sunrise Thursday. Just be aware of this if you know you’ll be out and about from midnight to 6:00 am Thursday. I’ll keep a close watch on this for ya.

Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Discussion

This active pattern we’re in will bring another disturbance into our region by Wednesday night. That precip could move in before temps are able to rise above freezing. Any precip that falls into that subfreezing air will likely fall as some light freezing rain/snow mix. Be aware of this if you must be out late Wednesday night (after midnight) into the very early hours of Thursday. Right now it looks like the window of opportunity for wintry weather will be narrow, as temps should quickly warm above freezing. Hopefully, if this occurs it will occur while many of us are asleep and be over with before many of us head to work Thursday morning.

A big pattern change will come by the end of the weekend. That could lead to some heavy rain and thunderstorms for Monday. Believe it or not, there are even signals that parts of Tennessee may deal with some severe weather from that system. I’ll certainly be keeping a close eye on that.

Even more snow can be found across the Four Corners region, as well as across extreme northern Idaho and northwest Montana. Dangerous fire weather conditions will develop across coastal southern California.

Tomorrow’s National Wx Hazards

You’ll notice our neck of the woods highlighted in mixed wintry precip. That’s for the overnight hours, as discussed earlier in this blog. Elsewhere, snowflakes will accumulate from West Virginia to Vermont, as well as along the US/Canada border of the Great Lakes region.

 Weather Shots

Yesterday’s sunset was just incredible. We’ve been so blessed with good sunsets here lately! I’m glad I was able to grab the camera before it all ended.

NASA Nerdology 

This is Meteorite ALHA81005, the first rock found on Earth to be identified as a meteorite from the Moon. It was found in Antarctica on this day in 1982.

You all have a great day!
