Meteorologist Mark’s 5-Day Wx Concerns
Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Discussion
One of the many “winters” of spring are upon us! Dogwood winter is indeed here. I’d protect any tender vegetation you may have tonight, just to be safe. The pattern we are in continues to feature cooler days and a more stable atmosphere. This means that severe weather remains out of sight.
Almanac for Yesterday

Today’s National Weather Hazards
Severe thunderstorms are possible across central Texas today, with large to very large hail being the main threat with any storm. Heavy snow is expected across the mountains of southern Vermont. Heavy snow is also expected across southeast Wyoming, western Nebraska and northern Colorado. Lighter amounts of snow will fall elsewhere across the Rockies. A wildfire danger expands across much of New Mexico and eastern Arizona, thanks to low humidity and gusty winds.
Tomorrow’s National Weather Hazards
Flooding rainfall is expected across Louisiana and southern Mississippi on Friday. That threat also includes the Mobile, Alabama area. Elsewhere, accumulating snowfall continues for parts of the Rockies and Front Range.
