Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Concerns

Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Discussion

A very active pattern continues for our area, but it does not look to bring either significant wintry weather or severe thunderstorms to our area. It had looked like we might have a shot at severe storms on Monday, but I think it’s just going to be a good old fashioned winter rain event. Some of that rain could be quite heavy. I wouldn’t be surprised to see 2-3 inch rain amount across the plateau from that system. If that rain moves in early enough on Sunday it could be a wintry mix, but my confidence is so low in that happening that it’s hardly worth mentioning.

We could use some rain, as we are now more than two inches below normal for the month of January.

There are some indications that the precip we see next Wednesday could be on the more wintry side. It’s a Gulf Low situation, so it’s worth keeping an eye on. Of course, that is nearly a week away and many things could, and likely will, change with that. I’ll keep you posted.

Joe Biden may be our new president, but I’m pretty sure this Cardinal rules the world (at least in his mind! ha). That beautiful blue sky yesterday sure did provide a beautiful backdrop for some nice pictures!

“Behold, doth I see two new moons?” – Voyager 2

In January 1986, Uranus moons, Cordelia and Ophelia, were discovered through images taken by Voyager 2. Uranus has 27 known moons, 25 of which are named for Shakespeare characters. How cool is that?

You all have a great day!
