Sunday – Monday: Hot and humid.

Tuesday: A chance for showers and storms as Cristbol moves to our west.

Wednesday: Rain and storms likely.

Thursday: Partly cloudy and pleasant.

Friday: A chance for a shower or storm. These chances may increase, as we have a front that will be passing through. Right now it looks like a drier frontal passage but that could change.

Yesterday’s National High and Low Temperature

High: 111 at Death Valley, California

Low: 30 degrees at Bodie State Park, California and Anaconda, Montana

Tropics

Tropical Storm Cristobal has maximum sustained winds of 50 mph this morning. Additional strengthening is possible. Cristobal is expected to be a strong tropical storm when he makes landfall on the northern Gulf Coast Sunday afternoon/evening. It is very unlikely that Cristobal will become a hurricane, due to the atmospheric conditions that will make that quite difficult. The main hazard will be flooding rainfall.

Today’s 

Wx Hazards Across the Nation

A severe weather outbreak is likely across the northern plains today, with all modes of severe weather likely. Cold air behind the storm system will lead to snow in the northern Rockies and Sierra Nevada Mountains of California and Nevada. Meanwhile, T.S. Cristobal makes his way north through the Gulf, bringing heavy rainfall well ahead of the center of the storm to Florida.

Tomorrow’s 

Wx Hazards Across the Nation

A severe weather outbreak unfolds again tomorrow across the northern plains and mountain snows will once again be falling. T.S. Cristobal makes landfall along the northern Gulf Coast by nightfall, bringing severe weather and flooding rains to that area.

Monday’s 

Wx Hazards Across the Nation

Severe thunderstorms are possible across the plains with a cold front. That front will sweep Cristobal’s remnants northward, bringing heavy rainfall to the Lower Mississippi River Valley.

Records

Talk about extremes….

On this day in 1816 the temperature at Salem, Massachusetts soared to a record-breaking 92 degrees in an early-season heat wave. The temperature then plunged 49 degrees in 24 hours and then commenced the “year without a summer”.

You all have a great day!

  1. Mark, perhaps you could comment more on the year without a summer. The Indonesian volcano of 1815 blanketed the earth freezing crops and people and it snowed in summer. Frankenstein was written by a freeze bound young lady. Reb
