Watching an interesting weekend storm system
I will issue a special update this evening at around 8:00 to update you on the winter weather for the weekend.
Noon Forecast (new!)
MM’s Wx Vlog
Thursday: Mostly cloudy, with sprinkles possible in the afternoon. Flurries possible after dark.
Friday: Partly to mostly cloudy.
Saturday: Rain developing by afternoon. Rain is expected to gradually change to snow overnight into early Sunday.
Sunday: Rain changing to snow.
Monday: Partly sunny.
Tuesday: Mostly sunny and breezy.
MM’s Winter Wx Concerns
A few flurries are possible in the early evening. A few of you may see some of these flakes land on surfaces and stick around. I don’t expect any impacts to travel.
Guidance is beginning to strongly suggest that snow will accumulate on Sunday. Amounts are highly questionable at this time but I think we can expect at least one to two inches. Just prepare for high impacts to travel for Sunday. While the precip moves out Sunday night, travel is liable to be hazardous into Monday if we get accumulating snowfall on Sunday. More data will come in today and hopefully clear up the situation even more. At this time, Saturday looks alright with mostly rain falling across the area. The changeover to snow should occur after dark, especially after midnight. Stay tuned.
On This Day in Wx History
1886 – A great blizzard struck the state of Kansas without warning. The storm claimed 50 to 100 lives, and eighty percent of the cattle in the state.
Almanac for Yesterday
The next MM kids class will likely hold off until February. Class is FREE. If you would like to be added to the email list for class notifications, just send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
An adults class will also be offered this month at TCAT to discuss the recent severe weather. That class was scheduled for Jan 4 but it is being rescheduled. Stay tuned for that new date! The class is free but any donation goes toward my monthly class for kids at TCAT.
Keep in mind there is a monthly newsletter for kids for FREE at https://meteorologistmarkpro.com/newsletter-for-kids/! Starting this month, there will be two newsletters for the kids each month, with one being primarily focused on space and the other on weather.
Weekly newsletter subscription proceeds go toward supporting my education outreach, primarily including the monthly class for kids that I teach at TCAT and the materials we use in those classes for our hands-on learning projects. You get to support encouraging kids to dream, while getting an awesome weekly newsletter that is sure to teach you something interesting about our weather! Let me know if you have any questions or would like to support my classes!
