Enjoy this beautiful day before big changes arrive
MM’s Wx Vlog
Today’s Afternoon Wx Map
High pressure centered in the Gulf of Mexico is firmly in control of the Southeast today, bringing unseasonably warm temps to the area.
Local Seven-Day Forecast
Friday: Mostly sunny. Unseasonably warm.
Saturday: Partly to mostly cloudy. Continued mild.
Sunday: A windy day, with scattered showers developing by afternoon. Mild. Rain likely overnight.
Monday: Mainly morning rain showers. Cooler. Breezy.
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy, with a chance of mainly afternoon showers. Windy.
Wednesday: Rain & possible thunder.
MM’s Wx Concerns
An approaching storm system will bring very gusty winds to the area Sunday and Sunday night. These winds could gust to 30 + mph, which could be enough to lead to sporadic power outages. Winds of this nature can also make driving difficult in high-profile vehicles. Make sure outdoor holiday decorations are secure, as well as any outdoor furniture and trash cans.
NOTE: Our record high will likely be broken today.

The next MM Kids class will be Tuesday, December 14, at 4:00 pm at TCAT. Suggested age range is 8 yrs and up. (Note: the date was changed from the 7th to the 14th).
This hour-long class focuses on weather folklore. We’ll discuss what works and what doesn’t and why. We’ll also discuss just how complex our planet’s atmosphere is and what that means for folklore. A hands-on activity will make the lesson come to life! Sign up at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeJd9uESXEQKxIxF07Hk0BxcDaCsCpxWHVceM-YqtZzww7y7Q/viewform
