Meteorologist Mark’s 5-Day Wx Concerns

Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Discussion

There’s just not much to talk about these days. Just be aware that we have some scattered frost possible tonight. Take care of tender vegetation that is sprouting.

Next week looks unsettled but, at this time, nothing looks too concerning. Let’s hope it stays that way.

Drought Monitor (New!)

I had planned on only showing this map on Thursdays, but I’ve decided to include the map each day, especially as we get into the warmer months, when drought may become more prevalent for different areas of the country. These maps are updated on Tuesdays but released to the public on Thursdays.

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