I really enjoyed meeting so many of you at Friday at the Crossroads yesterday evening! I love meeting all my fellow weather and space nerds. It was also a blast seeing all the kids come by to talk weather and space. My rocket launchers were very popular! 🙂
It was also encouraging to have so many of you ask about the MeteorologistMarkPro subscription site that is coming soon! I enjoyed sharing some of my ideas about that with you all and I got some really good feedback, too! A big thanks to all who stopped by. You all made a rough week end on a very good note!
On Wednesday evening at 7:00 p.m., several of us will be at Roane State Community College for an evening of stargazing! We’ll have all sorts of telescopes available, and I’ll do my best to let you know what you’re seeing. There will be a meteor shower, too, so that will be fun. Come out and join us for some stargazing fun! This is all weather-dependent, of course. I’ll keep an eye on that!

Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Concerns
Almanac for Yesterday
It’s like a little parade of disturbances. The one with the greatest chance that I’ve been tracking has been greatly reduced in “chances for development.” That is good news, but all three of these bear watching in the coming days. The more crowded it gets out there, the greater the chance that one of them will slip on over to our coastlines. I’ll keep you posted!
Sun & Moon
Planting by the Moon
7th – 10th Best for killing weeds, briars, poison ivy, and other plant pests. Clear wood lots and fencerows.
11th – 12th Excellent for sowing grains, winter wheat, oats, and rye. Plant flowers. Good days for planting aboveground crops.
13th – 14th Plant seedbeds. Plant peas, beans, tomatoes, peppers, and other aboveground crops in southern Florida, California, and Texas. Extra good for leafy vegetables.
15th – 17th Cut winter wood, do clearing and plowing, but no planting.
On This Day in Wx History
1930- One of the most notorious heat waves is underway in Middle Tennessee. Nashville’s 104 degrees is the second of four consecutive days with highs greater than 100.
