MM’s Winter Wx Concerns
A strong cold front will combine with just enough moisture to produce a chance for some light snow on Friday.
On This Day in Wx History
1832- The Sparta Recorder and Law Journal reports that a cold snap drops temperatures to -18 degrees at Sparta, -26 degrees at McMinnville, and -18 degrees at Nashville. (The official all-time record low at Nashville is -17.)
1989 – Snow and high winds created blizzard-like conditions in northwestern Vermont. Winds at Saint Albins gusted to 88 mph. In Alaska, the town of Cold Foot (located north of Fairbanks) reported a morning low of 75 degrees below zero.
Almanac for Yesterday

An adults class will also be offered next month at TCAT to discuss the severe weather we’ve had this winter. The class is free but any donation goes toward my monthly class for kids at TCAT.
Weekly newsletter subscription proceeds go toward supporting my education outreach, primarily including the monthly class for kids that I teach at TCAT. Try a free sample at https://meteorologistmarkpro.com/ and go to the “Free Sample” link. Subs are only $5 per month or discounted at $50 a year. Each newsletter focuses on the weather of the plateau, including explanations for why recent forecasts did or did not work out.
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. Financial support for my time spent on these letters comes from the subscriptions to the weekly newsletter for adults.
