National Short Term Outlook

A cold upper-level low interacting with Tropical Storm Zeta will bring widespread flooding rains and gusty winds today from the central Plains to the East Coast. A hyperactive weather pattern will culminate today over the central and eastern U.S. as a cold upper-level low continues to interact with Tropical Storm Zeta after making landfall yesterday afternoon over southeastern Louisiana as a category-2 hurricane. Zeta is forecast to race across the the southern Appalachians and the Mid-Atlantic states today while gradually losing tropical characteristics. Even though Zeta has weakened over land, the core of the storm will carry strong gusty winds near and just southeast of its track which could result in some damages to structures and power outages. Some severe thunderstorms are also possible today across the interior Southeast and the Florida Panhandle ahead of a cold front. To the north and west of Zeta, strong southerly flow aloft ahead of the cold upper low will continue to transport tropical moisture northward from the Gulf of Mexico and interact with a stalled front extending across the interior eastern U.S. A wide swath of heavy rain will continue to expand eastward from the Mid-Mississippi and Ohio Valleys into the East Coast today. The heaviest rain is expected to fall across the Appalachians into the northern Mid-Atlantic where 1 to 3 inches of rainfall totals with locally higher amounts are expected.

Another round of heavy rain possible for the northern Mid-Atlantic early on Friday as the cold upper low develops into a coastal storm; wintry precipitation expected for interior New England. By tonight, the cold upper low will be rapidly approaching the East Coast and then developing into a coastal storm. Another round of moderate to heavy rain is possible for the northern Mid-Atlantic with gusty winds early on Friday as the coastal low intensifies just off the East Coast. Some wintry precipitation can also be expected for interior New England as the low pulls down colder air from eastern Canada. Much more tranquil weather will return by later on Friday as the entire storm complex exits into the Atlantic.

A low pressure system will bring some precipitation across the Pacific Northwest on Friday, but little precipitation for the northern Plains by early Saturday. A low pressure system will track onshore across British Columbia on Friday, bringing some precipitation across the Pacific Northwest. The center of the low is forecast to track just north of the U.S.-Canadian border of the northern Plains Friday night. It appears that a lack of moisture will result in little to no precipitation for the northern Rockies and northern Plains Friday into early Saturday as a cold front passes through, with strong gusty winds being felt.

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.
