Happy Sunday and Happy Mother’s Day!

Today was a another gorgeous day with highs in the mid to upper 80s.

Happening tonight the NASA launch of the Black Brant XII sounding rocket from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia will attempt to launch once again. This kind of launch will provide an interesting sight in the northeast sky at 8:03 p.m.

The barium vapor clouds emitted from the rocket’s payload will generate a magnetic field perturbation that could energize electrons. The process is similar to how auroras develop over the planet’s polar regions.

If you’re able to catch a glimpse of the launch snap a photo and unload it to Snapjax, we will share your photos on the show.

Todays also kick starts Hurricane Preparedness Week. The Weather Authority will bring you different topics each day to make sure you and your family are prepared. Stay tuned for what we have planned!

Insolated showers (20% - 30%) return Monday with highs warming back up into the low 90s. Storm chances will stick with us through midweek with a possibility for strong storms Wednesday and Thursday.
