Weather forecasters here at home may sometimes have a tough time making accurate predictions for more than the day ahead, but we now can find out about weather conditions millions of miles away as a story from our news partners at Metro Networks below details:
(Washington, DC) — You can now get weather reports from Mars. NASA’s Insight lander is gathering weather data from the Martian surface and sending it back to Earth. NASA says the daily reports are now available to the public, and contain information about the air temperature, wind speed and air pressure on Mars. On Valentine’s Day, the Insight lander says the high temperature near the Martian equator was four degrees Fahrenheit. It got a bit chilly overnight, with a low of 138-degrees below zero. Insight has also discovered that there are ‘dust devils’ on Mars, little twisters that spin at about 60 miles per hour. Mark Lineberger/acc

I’m betting Weather channel meteorologist Jim Cantore is hoping he might be the first person to do a live shot covering some weather happening on the Martian planet.
That’s the way I see it.
