    Unless it’s Garfield, an 80 pound cat is probably not something you’d want to find wandering across your property. But when you live in Arizona, it happens. Last week, Tony Bonifasi posted a video to our AZ Family Facebook page of a mountain lion caught on a security camera Saturday, October 14, just outside of Flagstaff.

    Spartanburg tornado reports and possible path

    Monday, October 23 2017 8:25 PM EDT2017-10-24 00:25:13 GMT
    Spartanburg County was hit hard by powerful winds, some of which may have been from a tornado touchdown or possibly multiple touchdowns. The storm prompted a tornado warning near Woodruff and Moore where there is considerable damage in the Green Pond area. Then the storm moved north-northeast heading toward the city of Spartanburg. There were 3 separate tornado reports in and around Spartanburg city, with vehicle, structure and tree damage consistent with a strong tornado. However, th...More >

    Orionid Meteor Shower

    Friday, October 20 2017 2:45 PM EDT2017-10-20 18:45:20 GMT
    Some nice conditions are in store for the annual Orionid Meteor shower. Parts of Halley's comet are included in the shower! The best time for viewing will be around 2am Friday and Saturday nights, but you may catch some shooting stars before that! At the peak we should see up to 80 meteors per hour across the sky. It's a waxing crescent moon, so you won't have the brightness of a full moon to obscure viewing, so it should be a good show! Be sure to get away from city lights for the ...More >

    This winter's outlook

    Thursday, October 19 2017 2:01 PM EDT2017-10-19 18:01:53 GMT

    Long range forecasting is inherently flawed and is not easy to execute, but that being said, we can see trends and give you an overall idea of what to expect. Here’s what we are looking at toward the fall and winter of 2017-2018. La Nina is expected to develop this winter. La Nina is the opposite of El Nino, as it brings cooler than normal waters to the equatorial Pacific Ocean. That translates to a less active storm pattern for us, along with a “warmer” winter, but...
