February 21, 2019, Severe Storms Possible Saturday, Weather On Mars

Atmosphere:

The day is dawning with some sunshine and a 95% full moonset. We get a day to dry out with a high of 48. Rain returns tomorrow.

Saturday carries a good chance of severe weather in the evening. Per the NWS in Louisville: “. . . severe thunderstorms are possible Saturday evening as a strong cold front moves through the area. With strong low-level wind shear expected, the strongest cells could produce wind damage and tornadoes.”
