Severe Weather Concern

Any severe storm that forms should be isolated, therefore the concern is on the low end of the scale. I’ll continue to watch this very closely.

Baldwin’s 7-Day forecast

Wx Blog Slides - 2020-06-08T073727.974

Daily Forecast

Today: Hot and humid. A very slight chance for an afternoon/evening storm. Winds will be breezy, making it feel a bit less hot.

Tuesday: Partly to mostly cloudy with a chance for scattered showers and storms, especially in the afternoon/evening.

Wednesday: Scattered showers and storms. A few storms may be severe.

Thursday – Sunday: Dry and quite pleasant, with warm afternoons and cool nights.

Hay Weather Forecast

The hay weather forecast just keeps improving! Rain chances will threaten our Tuesday hay work but it should stay dry enough in the first half of the day to get some work done. Wednesday still looks like a poor day, though guidance is trending lower with rainfall amounts. Rain chances are now just 50%. Still, I wouldn’t count on Wednesday being a good day to work in hay.

After Wednesday, the weather is looking very nice!

Yesterday’s National High and Low Temperature

High: 111 at Rio Grande Village, Texas

Low: 20 at Bodie State Park, California


Tropical Storm Cristobal is now a tropical depression, with winds of 35 mph. The storm will track northward into Canada by the middle of the week. Very high winds are expected around the Great Lakes, as the remnants merge with another storm system. This could be one for the record books for those folks!

Cristobal made landfall Sunday evening as a 50 mph tropical storm. The system brought an impressive storm surge to an enormous amount of Gulf Coast real-estate. The depth of the surge was unusual for a tropical storm, but was the result of a combination of high tides and an unusually large tropical storm (in size).



Wx Hazards Across the Nation

Severe weather threatens the northern plains, associated with a cold front. Meanwhile, severe weather and flooding will be found across the Lower Mississippi River, thanks to the remnants of T.S. Cristobal.



Wx Hazards Across the Nation

Cristobal’s remnants will combine with a cold front to bring severe and heavy rainfall chances to the Midwest, Ohio River Valley, and even portions of the central plains.



Wx Hazards Across the Nation

A cold front, along with moisture from Cristobal, will bring severe weather chances to parts of the eastern US. That threat will likely extend southward from the current-outlined area.



On this day in 1953 Michigan experienced their worst tornado on record. The area around Flint, Michigan was hardest hit. The half-mile wide F-5 tornado claimed 116 lives, as it wiped out entire neighborhoods, at times killing entire families.

Long Range Outlook 

Extended outlooks for the middle of June (13th – 17th) are trending drier and cooler. It may start to get dry around here!





Weather News

You may have noticed some cool clouds streaming in from the south Sunday evening. Those were the leading edge of Tropical Storm Cristobal. Pretty cool scene, right?


You all have a great day!
