Today: strong storms
Mon-Tues: strong storms
Look for showers and storms all across the plateau today, especially this afternoon and evening. Some of these storms could be strong, so be aware of that. Widespread severe weather is not expected.
Showers and storms will continue for Monday and Tuesday, before activity become more isolated on Wednesday and Thursday.
We’re already seeing a couple of showers on the plateau this morning and a more substantial complex of showers and storms back around Nashville. All activity is moving very slowly eastward.
For those of you wishing things were cooler you better be careful what you wish for! On this day in 1987, an unseasonably cool air mass spread into the south central and eastern U.S. states. Fifteen cities reported record low temperatures for the date, including Houghton Lake, MI, with a reading of 37 degrees. The high temperature for the date of 58 degrees at Flint, MI, was their coolest of record for July. However, the cold front responsible for this incredible cold front produced severe thunderstorms that spawned several tornadoes in Illinois and Indiana. The only injury reported was to a cow near Donovan, IL. No details were given as to how the cow was injured, but it was reported that it was expected to make a full recovery.
So, the next time you wish it were cooler think about that cow. Think about all the cows. 🙂
You all have a great Sunday!
