MM’s Severe Wx Concerns 

I’ll keep you posted throughout the day on whatever you need to know about! Make sure you follow the blog by finding that “Follow” button in the lower right corner of your screen. Other ways to stay in touch and informed can be found at the end of this post.

The Storm Prediction Center continues to highlight our area in the ENHANCED RISK for severe storms. This is level 3 of 5. They have not upgraded anyone to MODERATE RISK, due to the lower confidence in isolated supercells that I talked about last night. Let’s hope that holds true and that we only have to worry about a line of strong to severe storms coming later this evening. Those lines are bad enough but at lest they move through quickly.

MM’s Winter Wx Concerns  

Confidence is increasing that we’ll see some light accumulations of snow on elevated surfaces!

Remember the Fur Babies

Temps will be taking a dive by tonight! With temps being so mild this month, make sure you double check the shelter of your outdoor pets and make sure it stays dry through today’s rains. It’s going to be a shock to drop to around 20 degrees by Sunday night!

On This Day in Wx History

1949 – A six day blizzard began over the Northern Rockies and the Great Plains. The storm produced the most adverse weather conditions in the history of the west.
