Now lets get to the weather! Take a look at this bloggers. While we have seen nothing but cloudy skies across the area the past week, other places have seen a beautiful show in the clear night sky!
NORRSKEN: "I stepped outside to walk my old black lab tonight, Jan. 24th, when I heard a friend yell norrsken! (Swedish for aurora)," reports Chad Blakley of Abisko National Park, Sweden. "I ran inside to grab my camera, but I needn't have hurried because the lights danced and played for more than two hours." He took this picture using his Nikon D7000:"It was another great night of Northern Lights here in Abisko!" adds Blakley. "I guess I owe these shots to my dog."
The sun helped a little, too. The display was caused by an episode of "south-pointing Bz." The interplanetary magnetic field near Earth tipped south, opening a hole in Earth's magnetosphere; solar wind poured in to fuel the display. High-latitude sky watchers should remain alert as Bz continues to favor polar auroras on Jan. 25th.
If there is one thing that I would love to see in person someday it would have to be the Northern Lights! I have seen so many amazing pictures and could only imagine what it would be like to look up and see them for myself! WOW!
Well, we may not have any northern lights in the forecast here in Indiana bloggers. However what about some sun?? Or will we remain in the clouds? Well, right now I'm looking for Partly cloudy skies through out the viewing area tomorrow! So a few peaks of sun are in the forecast. Now a lot of you have been asking about snow! And when more could be on the way. Well I put together this map below.
That's right. For the rest of this month it's looking like the only snow we would see will be in Clipper form! (Alberta Clipper Systems) So nothing BIG! However I'm still watching the weather pattern over the first week of February as models at this time show some precipitation moving into the area. And I will continue to keep everyone posted on this as we continue to move closer.
Here's your Wednesday - Thursday quick cast below.
Wednesday we are looking for Partly cloudy skies across the viewing area through out the day. Highs will be around 30* degrees with lows that night around 14* degrees. Winds will be light between 5 and 8 mph.
Our high temperatures will range between the upper 20s and low 30s from now through Sunday. And as for our lows, They will range between the upper teens and low 20s between Thursday night and Saturday night. It's looking like we will see another COOL DOWN by the start of next week!
Thursday we will look for mostly cloudy skies in the morning however a few :PM snow showers are looking likely! Only minor snow accumulation is expected at this time. Expect highs around 28* degrees with lows Thursday night around 24* degrees. Winds will be light between 5 and 10 mph.
That's the latest for now bloggers. Stay safe and God Bless! Remember you can always send me your weather pictures and reports to Dobby1717@aol.com
