Earth & Space News: Today’s Astronomy Picture of the Day looks as if it could have been a frame taken from a late 1970’s/early 1980’s Pay TV movie channel’s opening montage. I liked the HBO intro from that time, which started with a giant and bright “HBO” in space and then swooped down over a city (Hollywood?) at night, or something like that… anyway, it seemed very high-tech at the time!

Arlene’s maximum sustained winds dropped to 60 mph just before landfall, and then to 50 mph just after the center of circulation made landfall. Arlene’s winds remained at about 70 mph throughout Friday night and Saturday morning, but missed becoming a hurricane by 4 mph. High surf, some flooding and isolated tornadoes will be the largest concern from Florida to Louisiana.

New Location For Auto-Updating Feed Of Tropical Storm/Hurricane Data: I probably don’t need to mention the new location of the data feed from the Tropical Prediction Center (it’s hard to miss). I hope the red is not too overwhelming, but it is one of the main colors of the hurricane warning flag. Black text would provide the other color, but then it’s almost impossible to read…

On MSNBC: Watch for me on MSNBC’s Connected Coast To Coast this afternoon (5 p.m. ET). I’ll be discussing Arlene and blogging weather events… For MSNBC viewers coming here for the first time, welcome! This blog is an extension of the main WXnation site, which features live weather and webcam images and more for more than 100 cities.

Blast! Tornado, high winds, hail sweep across Wisconsin

Zap! D.C.-area storms leave 25,000 in the dark

After flooding in the Deep South, flooding is reported way up there

Boom! “There was no electricity…” and 9 months later, the baby boom begins.

When the time comes to name my child, Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller has now opened the door for me to consider the middle name “StormChaser” … that way if my child is pulled over for speeding during stormy weather, he or she can say, “But officer, I’m just doing my job, my middle name is StormChaser!”

Tornado-less May in Oklahoma for first time since records began; No U.S. tornado deaths in April, May; Tornadoes in Wyoming, Manitoba?; WeatherBug building network of backyard reporters; New NOAA satellite to track storms like no other before it; Tennessee quake; That’s hot

Tornado-less May In Tornado Alley-Central: When one thinks of summer weather in Florida, hurricanes might come to mind. And May in Oklahoma: tornadoes. Yet this year, not a single tornado was reported in Oklahoma — a first for the Sooner State for the month of May and any month since official records began in 1950, according to NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla. … I live about 75 miles south of the Oklahoma border, and many here in North Texas are wondering where the severe weather was in May. One answer is in this NOAA story

No U.S. Tornado Deaths In April, May: Another amazing story: No one in the United States died in a tornado in April or May, normally two of the three busiest months for twisters. From USAToday.com’s story Tornado numbers far below normal in ’05:

The National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center reported Wednesday that only 129 tornadoes struck the USA last month. There were more than 500 in May both last year and in 2003.

Tornadoes in Wyoming? Yep!

Likely tornado in Manitoba
