SATURDAY MORNING WREG-TV WEATHER UPDATE

THANKSGIVING WEEKEND CONTINUES: SATURDAY LOOKS CLOUDY & COOL

WREGC_l

Overcast skies graced the Mid-South for the last Saturday in November 2014. No rain as of mid-morning. But, more rain expected into tonight and tomorrow, along with some breezy winds. I’ll have a look at your forecast coming up right after a look at…


EGG BOWL WEATHER IN OXFORD, MS: 

11292014_EGGBOWL_A

Heading to the 2014 Egg Bowl today? Breezy and cool/mild. Temps in the 60’s will be nice, but with winds from the SSW at 10-20 MPH at times, there will be a decent cooling effect, so a good jacket/light coat will be a good idea. Better chances for (light) rain into evening as the game wraps up.


WREG-TV WEATHER ALMANAC: PRECIPITATION

11292014_ALM_PRE

Dry day yesterday with a deficit remaining for November.

WREG-TV WEATHER ALMANAC:  TEMPERATURES

11292014_ALM_TEMP

About as typical a high temperature on Friday for late November as you can get.

WREG-TV WEATHER ALMANAC: EARTHQUAKES

11292014_ALM_Q

None recorded in the Mid-South as of early Saturday morning. Info courtesy: CERI/USGS.


  TODAY’S MID-SOUTH FORECAST:

11292014_NEXT24_A

 More clouds. Showers developing. Very mild for late November: highs in the mid 60’s. Coverage chance for precipitation: increasing to 20% through the day into evening.

11292014_NEXT24_W

Winds: S @ 5-15 MPH. Higher gusts possible at times.

TONIGHT’S MID-SOUTH FORECAST:

11292014_NEXT24_B

Cloudy, breezy and mild tonight with lows only falling into the mid/high 50’s. Winds: remaining from the south at 5-15 MPH with some higher gusts possible. Coverage chance for overnight precipitation: 20%.


SKYBLOG3: STARGAZING TONIGHT… #FORGETABOUTIT

MemphisTNcsk (2)

In a word or two: no way. Too many clouds, not good viewing conditions this evening into overnight as cloud cover increases and sticks around.


EXTENDED FORECAST: CLOSE BUT NO CIGAR

I_nw_g1_EST_2014112900_066  11292014_PRECIPTYPE_A

By early Monday morning, and well outside the WREG-TV News Channel 3 viewing area, as cold air prepares to dive into the Mid-South, it will take the trailing edge of rain and turn it into a rain/snow mix along I-44 between Tulsa, OK, and St. Louis, MO.  The WREG News Channel 3 viewing area will be too warm for anything involving frozen precip, but if you are in motion and heading that way, may want to allow for extra time (and a lot less speed) on Monday early into NW Arkansas, southern Missouri and NE Oklahoma.



WEATHER ON MARS: FROM THE ROVER

11292014_MARS

The Rover Environmental Monitoring Station will measure and provide daily and seasonal reports on atmospheric pressure, humidity, ultraviolet radiation at the Martian surface, wind speed and direction, air temperature, and ground temperature around the rover.

FRIDAY MORNING WREG-TV MID-SOUTH FORECAST UPDATE

GREAT START TO THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND

B3h94FPIcAAPsp0 B3h9ljGIYAArtg0

Plenty of sunshine over the Mid-South early Friday morning as Thanksgiving travel continued and Christmas and holiday shopping got underway in earnest. A few clouds drifted through at times, but otherwise the Mid-South remained mainly clear and dry. I’ll have a look at your holiday weekend forecast coming up after this look at…



WREG-TV WEATHER ALMANAC: SUNRISE/SUNSET

11282014_ALM_SUN

Sunset tonight & tomorrow at 4:49 PM.

WREG-TV WEATHER ALMANAC: PRECIPITATION

11282014_ALM_PRE

No rain fell yesterday. Remaining ahead of the game for precipitation for the year by seven inches plus. Very dry for the month of November as we are well behind by just over two and a quarter inches. Which is odd as November is typically a soggy month for the Mid-South.  

WREG-TV WEATHER ALMANAC: TEMPERATURES

11282014_ALM_TEMP

Temperatures well below normal yesterday, only made it to the high 40’s. 

WREG-TV WEATHER ALMANAC: EARTHQUAKES

None to report in the last 24 hours.

YOUR WREG-TV MID-SOUTH FORECAST

11282014_NEXT24_A
Warmer today, but not exactly balmy, as highs today will reach the lower/mid 50’s. Winds: S @ 10-15 MPH. Coverage chance for precipitation: 0%. 

11282014_NEXT24_B

Mostly clear early tonight with increasing clouds. Winds: S @ 10-15 MPH. Coverage chance for precipitation: increasing to 20% by dawn Saturday.

GOT YOUR NOVEL DONE YET? (I DON’T!)

11282014_NANO_A

SATURDAY EVENING WREG-TV WEATHER FORECAST UPDATE

SATURDAY EVENING IN THE MID-SOUTH   

11222014_GCH_A

Plenty of clouds today, but not enough to totally keep the area in overcast skies for the day. Very mild temps in the 60’s was a nice change from the icebox of last week.  More clouds and more rain on the way for the area into tomorrow. Details to follow on your forecast, after a look at tonight’s…


WREG-TV WEATHER ALMANAC: TEMPERATURE

11222014_TEMPS_A

Very mild today with highs well above normal in the high 60’s. Lows above normal too: in the lower 50’s. Memphis came within ten degrees of a record high this afternoon.

WREG-TV WEATHER ALMANAC: PRECIPITATION

11222014_PRECIP_A

Dry for the Mid-South today with no rain collected at Memphis International Airport. Typically, November is a fairly soggy month for the area. So far, we are behind by nearly two inches for the month.

WREG-TV WEATHER ALMANAC: MID-SOUTH SEISMIC ACTIVITY

11222014_QUAKE_A

All quiet in the Mid-South over the last twenty-four hours.


STARGAZING WEATHER TONIGHT? NOT REALLY.    

MemphisTNcsk

More clouds tonight and more rain moving our way. The view of the Mid-South skies courtesy of the Memphis Astronomical Society’s incredibly helpful link to the Clear Sky Chart.


TONIGHT’S MID-SOUTH FORECAST     

11222014_LOWS_A

Clouds continue to move in overnight. Coolest temperatures will be just after midnight with numbers falling into the lower/mid 50’s. Winds: SSE @ 5-10 MPH, increasing to 5-15 MPH by early Sunday morning.

SUNDAY’S MID-SOUTH FORECAST       

11222014_HIGHS_A

Highs on Sunday above normal once again, in the mid/high 60’s. Winds: breezy from the south-southeast at 5-15 mph. Coverage chance for precipitation: 100%.

HOW ABOUT SEVERE WEATHER?   

11222014_SVR_SUN

Using the new color scheme from the NOAA Storm Prediction Center, the forecast for Sunday calls for general thunderstorms in the green, a Marginal Risk for severe storms in the darker/muddy green area for the Mid-South, meaning there is a small possibility of a severe storm among the other precipitation through the day. The best risk for severe storms looks to be in the Mississippi Delta across the Deep South and into the Carolinas with a Slight Risk category in the bright yellow.


EXTENDED FORECAST     

11222014_TEMP_A

Cooler as the Thanksgiving Week unfolds. Definitely not the icebox of the last couple of weeks, but a noticeable chill in the air.


STAY TUNED FOR MORE…     

DAYBREAKSUNDAYSMALL

I’ll have more details on your weekend forecast coming up bright and early on WREG-TV News Channel 3 Daybreak Sunday.

WREG-TV SATURDAY NIGHT FORECAST

HALFWAY THROUGH THE WEEKEND…

11152014_SUNSET_A

Managed to get some sunshine today before more clouds moved in to the area. The view near sunset on the WREG-TV Airport Camera at I-240 and Airways. 

   


WREG WEATHER ALMANAC:

11152014_ALM_PRE 11152014_ALM_TEM

Dry today with no rainfall recorded. Behind for the month by nearly an inch. Ahead for the year by nine inches.


FORECAST FOR THE MID-SOUTH

11152014_LOWS_A

Tonight: More clouds tonight. Chilly with lows in the mid/high 30’s, warming overnight by dawn Sunday as chances of rain move in. Winds: near calm, turning south. Coverage chance of precipitation: increasing to 30% by dawn Sunday.

11152014_HIGHS_B

Sunday: More rain potential for Sunday with widespread showers possible. Highs: lower 40’s. Winds: SE turning NE at 5-10 MPH.


SNOW POTENTIAL SUNDAY PM > MONDAY AM

11152014_SNOW_C

Cold air moving into the Mid-South Sunday night will change rain over to a rain/snow mix. Moisture for this storm will be limited and the cold air heading into the area will help to sweep most of the moisture out into early morning Monday.

11152014_SNOWACCUM_A

Greatest potential for snow looks like it’s going to be over SE Missouri and extreme NE Arkansas. Lesser chances for snow the farther south you go towards the I-40 corridor.


EXTENDED FORECAST

11152014_TEMPS_A

After another round of colder air drops in, temperatures will improve towards next week: back into the lower 50’s. Still below normal temperatures but out of the deep freeze.


#KEEPLOOKINGUP: Leonid Meteor Shower peaks this week  

leonids_2014_jpg_44825

“Stargazers hoping to catch a glimpse of some meteors should look to the predawn sky early next week.

The Leonid meteor shower is forecasted to peak Monday afternoon (Nov. 17) in the U.S. eastern time zone, so stargazers in the United States are advised to look to the skies between midnight and dawn on Monday and Tuesday morning for the best view, astronomers say.”
