While widespread hazardous weather is not expected this week, some of the afternoon storms Wednesday and Thursday could be strong to briefly severe, with small hail and gusty winds.
Stronger storms are possible over the weekend, depending on the track of the low. Monitoring.
As with any storm, always be mindful of that lightning and move indoors if you hear thunder.
The weather is just absolutely perfect today and tomorrow. If you’ve been missing spring-like weather you are in for a treat these first couple days of the work week. By the middle to end of this week we’ll see the ridge of high pressure break down Along with that, we’ll see an upper-level low and moisture from the disturbance in the Gulf moving in.
By Wednesday, we’ll have to start watching for a return to unsettled weather. That unsettled weather will stay with us for an extended period of time. The precip looks to be mostly afternoon/evening activity for Wednesday and Thursday. Some of these storms could be strong, with gusty winds and small hail.
On Friday, the precip may become more widespread and with us throughout the day. That rain chance looks to linger into Saturday and Sunday. Some of the storms over the weekend could be severe, depending on the exact track of the low. I’ll be watching for that.
At least one billion tons of rain falls on the earth every minute! Rain isn’t light in weight either. One inch of rain on one acre of land weighs approximately 226,000 pounds.
Crossville records the latest frost on record when the official low for the city dropped to 33 degrees on the morning of June 3, 1956. So, if you thought we were safe from frost in June you would be wrong.
A cloudburst is the name given for a sudden burst of rainfall. The technical definition is nearly 4 inches of rain per hour. It’s as if the cloud above you has burst and dropped all of its water on you.
On this day in 1921 a cloudburst near Pikes Peak, Colorado killed 120 people. In Pueblo, Colorado a 20-foot crest of the Arkansas River killed an additional 70 people. Up to 14 inches of rain fell with this storm.
