A Very Windy End to the Week
I had a wonderful time talking to the kids at Allardt elementary yesterday about the weather and severe weather safety! A very smart bunch of kiddos!
Today, I’ll be visiting the Kindergarteners at both South Cumberland and Stone Elementary schools!

Very strong and gusty winds are expected by afternoon. It is best to not be burning any outside brush, etc. Also, be sure to secure any loose objects you have outside. Winds could gust to 35 mph by afternoon/evening.

On This Day in Wx History
1973 – A major snowstorm struck the southeastern U.S. It produced as much as 18 inches in Georgia, and up to two feet of snow in South Carolina.
36 Days Until Spring
Almanac for Yesterday
The next MM kids class will be Thursday, February 17th at 4:30 at TCAT. Class is FREE. (Note: Class is full but there is a waiting list.) This hour-long class focuses on staying safe in high winds. With severe weather season upon us, it’s a good time to think about how to stay safe when bad storms threaten. We’ll review our severe weather safety tips and then the kids will construct a home they feel can stand up to Mother Nature’s worst. We’ll then put those homes to the test and discuss why certain ideas worked and why other ideas may fail. Come ready to learn and ready to build! All materials are supplied by MM.

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.
On Tuesday, the plateau had a deficit in rainfall for the first time this year. That has already changed and after today we won’t worry about rainfall deficits again for a very long time.
