  • P.M. Update: Wind Advisory issued for Sunday with strong and possibly damaging gusts expected tomorrow November 18, 2017
    **Wind Advisory in Effect for Entire Area on Sunday from 4AM to 3PM** I hope you’ve been taking a good look at the leaves that still hanging onto trees because we aren’t likely to see tree branches so full of foliage again until May. It’s a topsy-turvy kind of weather night around the region, with temperatures […]

    10:35 a.m. update: Areas of rain moved in to the broader region on the early side, but that activity has focused north and west of us so far, as expected. Otherwise, the forecast remains mainly the same. From 5:00 a.m… TODAY’S DAILY DIGIT A somewhat subjective rating of the day’s weather, on a scale of […]

  • PM Update: Cloudier with some showers ahead of a cold front Saturday; windy and cooler Sunday November 17, 2017
    Winds calmed down compared with yesterday, but they remained rather feisty today. When you add in temperatures only nearing 50 to low 50s in some spots, it certainly felt cool out there. As fall tends to do, we’ve got a weather seesaw ahead. Listen to the latest forecast: Get our daily forecasts on your Amazon […]

  • In lieu of radar, forecasters in Puerto Rico are using technology to guess where rain is November 17, 2017
    After Hurricane Maria wiped out Puerto Rico’s weather radar, the military installed a couple of stopgaps — smaller radars that couldn’t see as far, but would at least give meteorologists an idea of what was falling from the sky. Now, to fill in the holes that still remain in the island’s critical weather information, meteorologists […]

  • Here’s what the sun looks like through each year of its 11-year cycle November 17, 2017
    If you watch the sun over many years, it will change. It’s interesting to see our star wax and wane in brightness — a rather dramatic change in its appearance. Solar scientists call it “molt,” just like a bird sheds old feathers or a snake rejects its well-worn top layer of skin. This well-known molt […]

  • Pic of the week: Sea smoke and a single boat November 17, 2017
    Cold weather is beautiful — from unique snow crystals to landscapes frozen in time in a coating of frost to the ethereal sea smoke seen in the photograph above. Bill McKim captured this photo during the record early-season Arctic cold blast that affected millions from the northern Plains to the Northeast last week. Eventually, it reached […]

  • PM Update: Chillier air takes control through Friday November 16, 2017
    Despites gusty northwest winds behind last night’s cold front, Thursday was quite mild. Warmer than Wednesday, it should end up the warmest day, compared with the average in more than a week. The gusty winds have helped send us a new air mass, so it will be chillier Thursday night and Friday than earlier. Listen to the […]

  • The waves were legitimately surfable on Lake Tahoe yesterday November 16, 2017
    Surf’s up, dude. On… Lake Tahoe. The first big storm of the season is rolling onto the West Coast this week, prompting flood advisories and threatening a foot of snow in the northern Sierra Nevada. A flash flood warning was issued for the areas impacted by wildfires last month, as torrential rain fell on scarred […]

  • This is what’s behind the dramatic, deadly flooding in Greece November 16, 2017
    A rare Mediterranean storm has caused deadly flooding in Greece, and it’s going to continue through at least Saturday. The large area of low pressure was centered over Sicily on Wednesday, but Greece was bearing the brunt of the storm. At least 37 people have been taken to the hospital, according to the BBC, and […]
