Meteorologist Mark’s 5-Day Wx Concerns

Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Discussion

The next significant storm system will hold off until Monday. That system will likely produce several rounds of severe weather for the plains, but it looks like it will really lose its steam as it pushes this far east. Never the less, I’ll keep an eye on it and make sure we don’t have any storm worries. Right now confidence is high that we will not be dealing with widespread severe weather from this system.

The rest of next week looks unsettled. We may have some more storms to dodge Wednesday and those may be stronger than the ones we get Monday. That’s many, many days away and I have plenty of time to watch that and keep you updated.

On This Day in Wx History

There’s a lot of unsettled weather across the country, but the most impactful weather will be found in the form of accumulating snowfall across portions of Wyoming, Colorado, and Utah. Farther south, a wildfire dange can be found across portions of New Mexico.

The pattern becomes more active, with flooding concerns stretching across portions of the southern plains to Western Kentucky.

 Weather Shots

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to talk to three classes of fourth graders at Burks Elementary School in Monterey about severe weather. At the end of the day, about 70 fourth graders were ready for whatever Ma Nature throws their way! Great kids, great teachers, and an incredible experience!

NASA Nerdology 

During this week in 2006, the MRO arrived at Mars and began searching for signs of water. The spacecraft uses extreme close-up photography to look for evidence of shorelines of ancient seas and lakes.

You all have a great day and keep lookin’ up!
