MM’s Winter Wx Concerns
Precip continues to look very light with this system. Impacts should be low.
On This Day in Wx History
1988 – The nation got a breather from winter storms, however, cold arctic air settled into the southeastern U.S. Hollywood, Florida reported a record low reading of 39 degrees.
1989 – The last half of January was bitterly cold over most of Alaska. Nearly thirty stations established all-time record low temperatures. On this date Tanana reported a low of -76 degrees. Daily highs of -66 degrees were reported at Chandalar Lake on the 22nd, and at Ambler on the 26th.
Almanac for Yesterday
The next MM kids class will be in February. Class is FREE. If you would like to be added to the email list for class notifications just send me an email to email@example.com.
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.
The data cutoff for Drought Monitor maps is each Tuesday at 7 a.m. The maps, which are based on analysis of the data, are released each Thursday at 7:30 a.m. This week’s latest map is seen below.
