Almanac for Yesterday
On This Day in Wx History
1954- High temperature at Crossville hits 86 degrees, setting a new record for October.
Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes
High: 103° at Death Valley, California
Low: 10° at Peter Sinks, Utah
It’s not much but it’s the only thing worth watching at the moment. The yellow-shaded region now only has a 10% chance for development, as it moves northwestward this week. Development, if any, would be slow to occur this week.

The Bigfoot Festival is coming! As many of you know, I am the director of that festival. As we plan for the thousands who will come into town for this unique festival, the excitement is building! As many as 20,000 people are expected…maybe more! The festival is a charity event to benefit the United Fund of Cumberland County. The more people who show up, the more money we raise for our local nonprofits! Many of those nonprofits offer services that we’ll all likely need at some point in our lives. Mark those calendars for October 16th and plan to be at the Cumberland County Fairgrounds. Gates open at 9:00 a.m. For MUCH more information, please see https://ucbigfoot.com/!

The new kids newsletter is out! It’s free to preview, too! Just go to https://meteorologistmarkpro.com/ and select the “Newsletter for Kids” link. Let me know what you think! Feedback just helps me get better or even encourages me to continue expanding!
As many of you know, I teach in Adult Education. We not only help folks earn their GEDs, we also help people who have been out of school a while and need to brush up on courses they had in high school. This can give you the confidence and skills you need to thrive in college or whatever else your path may be. If you or anyone you know could benefit from our services, just let me know! And, of course, it can remain completely confidential. You just might end up with Meteorologist Mark as a teacher!
If not me, then I can assure you any of our teachers would be a wonderful source of help and encouragement!
