MM’s Wx Concerns
Light wintry precip is possible Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Right now it doesn’t look like there will be any impacts. I’ll keep an eye on that, though. If temps get cooler than expected, or there’s more moisture than expected, there could be some minor impacts.
Another strong storm system could bring the threat of severe storms on Saturday. I’ll keep a close eye on that .

The next MM Kids class will be Tuesday, December 14, at 4:00 pm at TCAT. Suggested age range is 8 yrs and up.
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.
