Almanac for Yesterday
MM’s Severe Wx Concerns
Strong and gusty winds today could lead to sporadic power outages across the plateau, especially to areas vulnerable to such outages. Driving high-profile vehicles could also be difficult.
Right now, the main threat timeframe looks to be from noon to midnight. I’ll try to get more specific with that as we get closer to the event.
Keep this in mind when making plans for Saturday. I’ll have more info on this event as we get closer to Saturday.
MM severe weather safety tips can be found at the link below. Look that over today, before storms arrive tomorrow.
MM’s Winter Wx Concerns
Snow showers are possible on Sunday. right now, a warm ground and limited frozen precip should keep impacts low. I’ll monitor this closely in the coming days. Keep this in mind if you make Sunday plans.
