Our satellites and instruments have been monitoring the record-breaking Hurricane Patricia as it rapidly intensified off the southwestern coast of Mexico. We saw the storm and its rigid cloud top temperatures in infrared light. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1NYCMpb#EarthRightNow
"If our society really wanted to solve the problem, we could; it's just that it would require everybody saying, 'this is important; this is significant.' And, that we don't just pay attention to these communities when a CVS burns, and we don't just pay attention when a young man gets shot or has his spine snapped, but we're paying attention all the time because we consider those kids our kids." —President Obama on the situation in Baltimore: http://go.wh.gov/sjSAyV
What a fabulous start to the weekend and to the Dixie Classic Fair! Temperatures tonight will fall rapidly after sunset... from around 70 degrees at 7 pm to the mid-50's by 11 pm. Take a jacket to the Fair or to any Friday football games you have on tap for the evening!
