National Weather Forecast

The main story on Monday will be another atmospheric river impacting the west coast, bringing heavy rain and snow along with it. A low off the Gulf Coast will bring some storms to southern Texas and Louisiana. Another low off the Mid-Atlantic coast will bring rain and mixed precipitation from the Outer Banks to Cape Cod. Snow showers will be possible in New England.

With the atmospheric parade continuing out west, very heavy rain and snow will continue to impact the region through the beginning of the work week. By Tuesday, we could easily see another 2-6”+ of rain fall along parts of coastal California, including in the Bay Area and down toward Los Angeles.


MIT Scientists Reveal Why Rome’s Pantheon Has Yet to Crumble

More from CNET: “Despite being built thousands of years ago, some concrete structures across the world have surprisingly, and literally, stood the test of time. Rome’s Pantheon, most notably, was constructed around 126-128 A.D. — yet its massive, unreinforced concrete dome still majestically anchors the city. Some ancient Roman aqueducts are even still in use, steadily delivering water across the land. So a big question naturally arises: What might be special about 2,000-year-old concrete? And how can we build superpower buildings as durable as the iconic edifices of the Roman empire? On Friday, in the journal Science Advances, engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology offered a fascinating answer. In short, they believe small minerals called “lime clasts” gave old concrete a sort of healing capability.
