Ever wonder what a solar eclipse would look like from space? Take a look at this one captured by @nasa !

The #eclipse2017  a satellites perspective from coast to coast.

Here's a smoke model forecast for the next 36 hours. It shows improvements expanding across eastern WA Monday. Unfortunately some spots in southeast WA & the ID Panhandle may not reap these benefits. Confidence is low on where the smoke goes through the week. #wawx  #idwx 

Visible satellite data from today (first image) compared to one year ago shows a huge difference in snow cover across the region. Last year at this time, almost all of the Inland Northwest was covered with snow whereas today most if it was confined to the mountains. #wawx  #idwx 

Meteorological term-o-the-day: #Fujiwhara  Effect - The tendency of two nearby tropical cyclones to rotate cyclonically about each other.

Stunning! GOES16 capturing the #eclipse2017  across the western US with the mostly clear skies. #wawx  #idwx 

You can see the exact moment when the Cascade fires really started sending up a lot of smoke today. Headed east, unfortunately #wawx  #idwx 

It's officially the first September snowfall in Spokane since 1926! The Airport measured 0.2" of snow as of 10 am. More to likely come during the next 24 hours. #wawx
