National Short Term Outlook

Significant snowfall expected to overspread the northern Rockies and the northern Plains into the weekend. Cold air dives south through the Rockies and the Plains toward the eastern U.S. during the next few days. A low pressure system moving toward the Pacific Northwest is expected to bring a significant snowfall event across the northern Rockies and into the northern Plains through the next couple of days. The snow is expected to spread across interior northern Washington today and then increase in intensity over the northern Rockies and northern High Plains on Saturday as the system interacts with a surge of cold air from western Canada. Widespread snowfall of a foot or more can be expected to accumulate across these areas through Sunday morning along with strong and gusty northerly winds. Temperatures will plunge into the single digits for many locations by Sunday morning, with below zero readings forecast for the higher terrain of western Montana. High temperatures will stay only in the teens for the coldest locations. Meanwhile, Freeze warnings are in effect over parts of the central Plains early this morning behind a cold front.

Severe thunderstorms possible this morning over the Great Lakes while light snow gradually tapers off over the northern Plains later today. Over the Great Lakes today, a developing low pressure system along a sharp front could bring some strong to severe thunderstorms across the area as the system moves into Canada. Light snow over the northern Plains behind the system should gradually taper off later today. Meanwhile, very warm afternoon is forecast to continue today for much of the eastern U.S. The sharp cold front will bring noticeably colder air into the Ohio Valley on Saturday but much of the Southeast remains warmer than normal on Sunday as the front stalls across the Appalachians.

Elevated Fire Risk over parts of northern California and for the Four-Corners region. The threat for fire weather remains elevated across northern California and the Four-Corners region under persistent warm and dry conditions with gusty winds.

Strack & VanTil Team offer a helping hand at the Habitat for Humanity Lake Station Build Site

Sunset Christian Church offers a hand at the Habitat for Humanity NWI Lake Station Build Site

GaryIndiana October 1, 2020 โ€“ Majestic Star Casino partnered with Habitat for Humanity of NW Indiana to build walls for a new home being built for the Best Family in Gary, Indiana.  Majestic Star Casino provided a volunteer group of 24 to build all 32 interior and exterior walls as well as funds to cover materials.  All the walls were built on the old casino property in Buffington Harbor. 

โ€œThe work done by Habitat makes such a difference in the lives of those they serve, and Iโ€™m pleased to play a small part in that. Through our Spectacle ALL-IN program, the team at Majestic Star Casino is excited to pitch in and help Shakira Bestโ€™s family become homeowners at the “Field of Dreams” project in Gary. Itโ€™s a humbling and fulfilling experience for all of us,โ€ stated Rich Zeigler, Vice President of Development for Spectacle Entertainment and a Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Indiana board member. 

โ€œDecent, affordable housing is critical to the welfare of each and every family. We are so grateful to partner with Majestic Star Casino, stabilizing another family in Northwest Indiana.โ€ stated Dawn Michaels, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Indiana. 

Shakira Best and her family will move into a neighborhood called โ€œField of Dreamsโ€.  This beautiful, two block section of Gary is nearly entirely comprised of Habitat homes.  The first Habitat home in the โ€œField of Dreamsโ€ broke ground in 2004.
