The End Of The Week!

We made it to the end of another crazy winter week! Today we still have some icy conditions out there on the roads and if that wasn’t enough there have been many reports of flooding! The Green River is expected to reach around 29 feet (about 3 feet above flood stage) on Saturday. So what should we expect going into this weekend? We should be expecting some cold conditions Saturday night with lows mainly in the teens. Do expect to see a nice trend toward milder conditions by Sunday with highs in the low to mid-40s. Sunday night still brings cold temperatures in the low 20s. Enjoy the overcast weekend and a possible warmer week ahead, and maybe our first 50 high for February.

National Weatherperson’s Day

Tomorrow is Saturday, February 5th which is National Weatherperson’s Day! It is observed on the birthday of John Jefferies, one of the United States’ first weather observers who took daily measurements. He also took the first balloon weather observation¬†over London in 1784. He carried a thermometer, a barometer, and a hygrometer to the height of 9000 feet.¬† This is a day to recognize the men and women who collectively provide Americans with the best forecasts and warning services of any nation. Anyways, have a great weekend and see you next week!
