Meteorologist Mark’s 5-Day Wx Concerns
Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Discussion
The weather pattern continues to look cooler and more stable once we get to tomorrow. That will keep severe weather chances at bay for at least a week, maybe two weeks. This pattern could bring bouts of scattered frost, with the first chance for that coming Friday morning. Since the Dogwoods are in bloom, we would call that Dogwood winter.

The drought monitor is updated each Thursday.
The Ingenuity helicopter on Mars was set to fly today, after being delayed from flying Sunday. However, now a system update is taking place and they can’t fly until that is finished. It could take several days. A friend of mine from the NASA Socials created this for the occasion (ha!).
