Another cold morning with widespread frost, and another chilly day ahead, but in the headlines, a big temperature re-bound is on the menu for the week ahead. We are still storm-free for several days. I’m optimistic clouds will cooperate for this evening’s Space Station Flyover, too. (scroll down for the details and time)
TODAY: Partly to mostly sunny. Chilly, but near average for late January. High 57. Tonight’s Low 34.
MONDAY: More sun than clouds. Chilly, but not too cool. High 56. Low Monday night 37.
COLD AIR RETREATS: Then, on Tuesday, the cold air retreats and warmer air in Texas and the Plains states heads east.
THE WEEK AHEAD: Storm-free through the work week. Our next rain could be on Superbowl Sunday. Temperatures will be comfortable. Skies will be partly cloudy.
TONIGHT’S SPACE STATION FLYOVER: If you missed Thursday night’s Space Station flyover, no problem. There will be another excellent flyover early this evening. Very bright. Set your smart phone alarm for 5:40. The flyover will be from about 5:41 to 5:44PM from the southwest to the northeast. It will be almost directly overhead at Montgomery at 5:42, heading northeast at 17,500 mph, with 6 humans aboard. Of course, it is easily viewable with the naked eye, appearing as a bright point of light. Your kids, especially, will get a thrill out of seeing the flyover, but so will kids of all ages. It never disappoints. WEATHER: A thin veil of high clouds could be a factor in limiting viewing, like Thursday night, but I am highly optimistic that many, if not most of us will be able to see the flyover.
Here’s a shot just after sunrise this morning, from Blount Cultural Park, with 35 degrees and heavy frost on the ground.
Have a great day today! I’ll have your next video ready for you tomorrow morning by 5AM.
