A chance for snow flurries
MM’s Wx Vlog
Today’s Afternoon Wx Map
A system produces light precip to our south today and another system produces precip to our northwest. The two may combine to produce some snow flurries on the plateau late tonight and Wednesday morning.
Local Seven-Day Forecast
Tuesday: Mostly sunny. Clouds increase later, with snow flurries late tonight.
Wednesday: Chance for morning snow flurries. Little to no impact expected. Clouds decrease by afternoon.
Thursday: Partly to mostly cloudy and mild. Breezy.
Friday: Mostly cloudy, with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Breezy. Storms may be on the stronger side.
Saturday: Rain & storms likely. Some storms could be strong. Windy.
Sunday: Mostly cloudy. Cooler.
Monday: Mostly sunny. Warmer.
MM’s Wx Concerns
Snow flurries are possible tonight and Wednesday morning. Right now it doesn’t look like there will be any impacts.
Another strong storm system could bring heavy rainfall and the threat of strong storms from Friday to Saturday. Strong southerly winds could also prompt wind advisories. I’ll keep a close eye on all of this. The Storm Prediction Center plans to begin highlighting threat areas for Friday and Saturday in tomorrow morning’s thunderstorms outlooks. I’ll keep ya posted!
Today is almost identical to the weather we had on this day last year, complete with a tiny bit of precip like what we may get late tonight with snow flurries.

On This Day in Wx History
1989 – A storm moving out of the Central Rocky Mountain Region spread snow across Kansas and Oklahoma into Arkansas and Tennessee. Snowfall totals ranged up to 7.5 inches at Winfield, Kansas. Freezing rain on trees and power lines cut off electricity to 24,000 homes in northeastern Arkansas, and 40,000 homes in the Nashville, Tennessee area were without electricity for several hours.
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. A hands-on activity will make the lesson come to life! Sign up at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeJd9uESXEQKxIxF07Hk0BxcDaCsCpxWHVceM-YqtZzww7y7Q/viewform
