éé coming up on mom to mom... mandy is reviewing an as seen on tv product.
éé will it get a thumbs up or thumbs down.
We'll have that story after the break.
éé they're dirty, clean or in between.
éé either way, cleaning home appliances can be a chore.
éé mandy is testing a product that might help get those stains out.
éé here's mom to mom, take a look.
éé today on mom to mom, we're going to be testing out this as seen on tv product.
Will it be a thumbs up or thumbs down?
This is the angry mama, and she's used to clean those nasty microwaves.
And according to the box, it's fairly easy.
We're about to find out.
This says, "it's going to steam away the stains and odors, and as easy as adding vinegar and water, microwaves for seven minutes, and then you're going to just wipe it clean after two minutes."
Pull off her head, and it's got these marks where it tells you the vinegar and the water.
So we're going to go ahead and fill that up.
Now, our water, simple enough, right?
Then we put her back together.
Well, angry mama right here.
So it says, to "put it in for seven minutes."
So we let her sit for two minutes, and it says "to grab angry mama by the arms because they stay cool."
Pour the solution onto a sponge, and then you wipe the microwave out.
My microwave was pretty nasty, and she seemed like she did a really decent job of kind of loosening things up.
The smell isn't that pleasant, because the hot vinegar kind of released into the air makes it slightly stinky.
But having a nice clean microwave, i would say the angry mama is a thumbs up.
If you have an as seen on tv product you would love for us to try, you can always hit us up on our facebook page.
And we'll see you on the next mom to mom.
It's getting to be the time of year where everyone wants to know...are we going to see snow this winter?
éé well, while it's impossible to tell exactly what the weather will be over the next few months, there is a way for meteorologists to get a pretty good idea.éé meteorologist trevor birchett gives us a look.
éé while i wish i had a magic 8 ball that could tell me if we're going to see snow this winter, i haven't been able to find one yet.
Believe it or not, the next best thing we have is looking at what the ocean temperatures are near the equator.
Stick with me here...depending on the pattern, ocean temperatures in the central pacific can either be warmer or cooler than normal.
These usually switch every year or so, in something referred to as the el nino southern oscillation, or enso for short.
See, when ocean waters in the pacific ocean are warmer, storms systems tend to develop over the northern pacific and track eastward through the southern us.
This is what's called el nino, and it's a good setup for us to see some colder weather and precipitation, maybe even snow.
However, when the waters in the pacific are cooler, the jet stream remains to our north, keeping us warmer through the winter.
This also means most of the storm systems remain to our north, meaning we stay drier than normal.
This is called la nina, and it's what is forecast to occur this year.
However, just because we're expected to be in a la nina pattern doesn't mean we can't see snow.
In fact, 2 out of 3 recent snow events in tupelo occured during a la nina year.
So i say all of this to say...it's hard to predict what's going to happen 7 days in advance, much less months down the road.
We'll really just have to wait and see what happens and if we can get lucky with some snow this year.
We'll be here monitoring the weather no matter what.
And remember, if you have a weather question, let us know and we'll answer it here next week.
Until next time, i'm meteorologist trevor after a few rounds of fall-like weather over the past month or so, warmer weather has returned to the area.
Aside from some showers on tuesday and wednesday, no major weather is expected over the next seven days.
Tropical update: tropical storm eta is currently bringing heavy rain and wind to southern florida and the florida keys as the storm continues northward.
Impacts will be felt from miami up to tampa and orlando early next week in the way of flooding rain and wind.
As of now, we're not expecting anything from eta in our area.
Sunday night: a few clouds will linger tonight with skies becoming mostly cloudy at times.
Lows will be in the low 60s with a light southeasterly wind.
Monday: temperatures will remain warm as we start off the week with highs in the upper 70s and a breezy southeasterly wind.
Gusts could be as high as 20 mph as skies remain partly to mostly cloudy.
Tuesday- wednesday: an approaching cold front will bring us a shot for some showers tuesday afternoon into wednesday morning, but not everyone will see rain.
This front will also help to keep tropical storm eta to our east, so we're not expecting any impacts from that here locally.
We'll see a mix of sun instagram.
