Tropical disturbance observed even after hurricane season ends
Apparently Mother Nature didn’t get the memo that the official hurricane season ended on November 30th. The FOX Forecast Center is monitoring a tropical disturbance in the Atlantic that has a medium probability of developing within the next 5 days. If he gains enough strength, I’d take the next name on the list: Owen.
Flash flooding possible across South as torrential rains continue
Round after round of rain is moving through parts of the south this week. A large swath from far eastern Oklahoma to far western Virginia could see up to 5 inches of rain. Northern Arkansas, Missouri’s Bootheel, far north Alabama, as well as much of Tennessee and Kentucky are expected to receive the most rain, according to the FOX Forecast Center. There is a threat of flash flooding in the western parts of this region on Wednesday.
Mauna Loa eruption continues in Hawaii
The world’s largest active volcano continues to rumble more than a week after it began to erupt. Mauna Loa was silent for nearly 40 years before lava began gushing out on November 27. Since then, the lava has been inching toward a major highway on the Big Island of Hawaii. Officials also warned people expecting to see the molten rock to stay within the designated safe area for viewing the volcano.
Orion offers spectacular views of the moon before returning home
Orion, the spacecraft NASA wants to use to return astronauts to the moon, made one last pass of our celestial neighbor before heading home. The spacecraft’s cameras showed a stunning view of Earth rising above the horizon before the engines were fired to send the spacecraft on a trajectory for a splashdown in the Pacific Ocean on December 11.
