No widespread hazardous weather is expected over the next seven days.

Baldwin’s Severe Weather Concern

Those of you with a sharp eye may notice I’ve increased this just a bit from yesterday. That slight increase in concern is due to the fact that any storm that develops in the heat of the afternoon can always be on the strong side. Those will be so isolated and short-lived that my concern will likely stay very low.

Baldwin’s 7-Day forecast

Wx Blog Slides - 2020-06-12T083503.693

Daily Forecast

Today & Tomorrow: Very nice and pleasant.

Sunday: A few more clouds as a dry cold front passes through. We may have a storm or shower develop on the plateau.

Monday: Partly cloudy and pleasant.

Tuesday – Wednesday: A few more clouds and a slight chance for a mainly afternoon shower or t-shower.

Thursday: A bit more humid and a bit better chance for an afternoon shower or storm. Most of us will likely stay dry from Monday – Thursday.

Baldwin’s Hay Day Forecast

Most of you have nothing but good hay weather coming over the next seven days! A cold front passing through on Sunday may lead to a storm on the plateau. That rain chance is very slim. The next slim chance of an afternoon storm comes Tues – Thurs. You know the drill….about 90% of us won’t see a thing, while one or two of you see a storm.

I’ll check out all the data today and do a video update this evening for you all.

Yesterday’s National High and Low Temperature

High: 115 at Death Valley, California

Low: 25 at Copper Basin, Idaho and Grand Lake, Colorado


There are no areas of concern at this time, nor are any expected for the next five days.


Wx Hazards Across the Nation

The only weather hazards are heavy rainfall on the Southeast Coast today, with the passage of the cold front, and a fire danger across the Southwest. That’s two extremes! Yesterday, fires scorched parts of northern Arizona, with some of those fires visible from satellite! Those fires will be likely again today, with gusty winds and hot/dry conditions staying in the forecast.



Wx Hazards Across the Nation

Fire dangers continue for the Southwest. Otherwise, it’s a quite Saturday.



Wx Hazards Across the Nation

A rather quite Sunday for the nation.



On this day in 1988 the city of Asheville, North Carolina recorded a record low temperature of 40 degrees! I noticed that Crossville was in the lower 40s for this same time period.

It is interesting to note that the summer of 1988 went on to become one of the hottest and driest summers on record for our region.

Long Range Outlook 

Temperatures creep up a bit in the extended outlooks, while rainfall chances look bleak.





Weather News

As mentioned earlier in the blog, fires were a big problem across parts of northern Arizona yesterday. Some were even visible on satellite, such as the Mangum Fire. Being able to see the smoke from satellite is very helpful for firefighters, especially in the remote mountain regions of the western US. Often times, the satellite “sees” the fire before anyone reports it, giving firefighters precious extra time to fight the fire.

You all have a great day!
