MM’s Wx Concerns
While widespread flooding issues are not expected, be aware that heavier downpours, especially on Thursday, could lead to some ponding of water on some roadways. Be careful if you’re out and about.
MM’s Winter Wx Concerns
This is another event that looks light but impacts to roads could be “high.” Be aware that roads could become quite hazardous with a glaze of ice late Thursday night and Friday morning. I’ll monitor closely. This is not an ice storm for us, but it only takes a little ice to cause big travel troubles.
I’m feeling brave this morning, teachers. 🙂
On This Day in Wx History
1951 – The greatest ice storm of record in the U.S. produced glaze up to four inches thick from Texas to Pennsylvania causing twenty-five deaths, 500 serious injuries, and 100 million dollars damage. Tennessee was hardest hit by the storm. Communications and utilities were interrupted for a week to ten days.
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. Right now I’m raising money to buy tablets for the classes. These tablets will allow students to hold animated weather and space events right in their hands! I have raised $400 thus far, with another $1600 needed.
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 week’s newsletter primarily focuses on the weather of the plateau. Find out why subscribers are raving on their new weather newsletters!
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.
