MM’s Severe Wx Concerns
Very heavy rainfall is possible on the plateau over the next 48 hours. Be please mindful of this if you live in flood-prone areas. Flash flooding is possible across the plateau, especially on Thursday. Keep in mind that even on the plateau, no area is immune to flash flooding. Be especially careful out driving and NEVER cross a flooded roadway, esp if the water is moving.
MM’s Winter Wx Concerns
A wintry mix is expected to begin around midnight Thursday and be with us into the early morning hours of Friday. While icing amounts are expected to be light, impacts to roadways could be very high. It only takes a little bit of sleet to make for extremely hazardous roadways. Icing to trees and powerlines continues to look like light. Keep in mind that if you are traveling westward on Thursday or Friday that icing amounts are expected to be much more significant west of Nashville.
I know it’s brave….but I predict a snow day for Friday! Let’s see if my perfect record of forecasting school snow days can hold up! lol I mean, honestly, isn’t this the most important part of the forecast, teachers? I feel ya.
On This Day in Wx History
1952 – The only tropical storm of record to hit the U.S. in February moved out of the Gulf of Mexico and across southern Florida. It produced 60 mph winds, and two to four inches of rain.
2011 – A high temperature of 44°F registered at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, Arizona, sets an all-time February record for the coldest high temperature for the city.
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.
