A few showers could still slide through southern Middle Tennessee this evening, as shown here by the HRRR model’s radar simulation:
But overall we’ll see decreasing clouds overnight, allowing temperatures to drop to the mid to upper 30s in most locations:
- Much more of North America has snow right now vs. this time last year — which could signal a much colder November for the Lower 48.
- Crucial Arctic monitoring satellites are blinking out just when we need to track sea ice. The Air Force had a replacement spacecraft ready to fly, but Congress ordered it dismantled. (Seriously.)
- Beyond just those satellites, scientists say the way we monitor climate is failing and needs to be overhauled.
- State leaders in California are discussing banning the sale of vehicles that run on gasoline or diesel. Is that even possible?
- A star exploded in 1954, survived, and exploded again in 2014 (“zombie star”!). That totally confounds what we thought we knew about supernovas.
- Do Nike’s new “marathon shoes” actually make you run faster?
- Gene therapy just saved a young boy’s life — by giving him new “engineered” skin.
- Weird, but true: daytime wounds heal more quickly than those suffered at night.
- Medical researchers now say that alcohol consumption increases the risk of breast and other cancers.
- Do you know enough basic anatomy to keep yourself healthy?
- Wolves are far better than dogs at cooperation.
- Does success come mostly from talent, hard work — or luck?
