This Week’s Hazards

While hazardous weather is not expected over the next five days, widespread frost is likely by Friday and (especially) Saturday nights.

Also, with dry conditions and low humidity, be careful if out burning. We’re getting into the season where we have to be mindful of wildfire dangers.

Five-Day Outlook

Five-Day Weather Forecast 

Wednesday: Mostly sunny, with light north winds.

Thursday: Mostly sunny. Light winds. The warmest day of the week.

Friday: Mostly sunny. Patchy frost developing overnight.

Saturday: Sunny and much cooler. Widespread frost likely overnight.

Sunday: Mostly sunny.

Forecast Discussion

The only headlines for this forecast period pertain to the dry weather and the potential for widespread frost. While many of us have seen patchy frost this season, Saturday night offers the best chance for everyone to see that frost.

The dry weather continues, with no measureable precip in sight.

Almanac 

HISTORY

On This Day 

1954- Temperature tops out at 86 degrees at Crossville for the second consecutive day.

1972 – Heavy rains, mostly the remnants of Tropical Storm Joanne, fell across much of Arizona. It was believed to be the first time in Arizona weather history that a tropical storm entered the state with its circulation still intact. The center was over Flagstaff early on the 7th.

REGIONALLY 

Drought Outlook 

As expected, drought conditions worsened over the past week. Unfortunately, rainfall from Ian did not reach any of Middle and West Tennessee, so drought conditions are liable to worsen even more over the coming week.

Rocket Launch Update

Hurricane Ian really took a toll on the rocket launch schedule. The good news is that the Space Coast seems to have weathered the storm well, thanks to lots of good preparation. The bad news is that I can no longer attend the launch of this particular rocket. BUT, I will be back down there sooner than later. I’ll keep you posted!

Update: The NASA Social folks reached out to me yesterday and said that I get priority for the next one!
