Daily Forecast

Today & Thursday: Partly cloudy, with only a very slim chance for an afternoon shower or storm.

Friday: A few more storms around than in days past, otherwise partly cloudy. Most of us stay dry.

Saturday – Sunday: Very warm and humid, with a chance for a mainly afternoon/evening shower or storm. (FYI: Rain chances may increase for the weekend, depending on data that comes in today.)

Monday – Tuesday: Scattered showers and storms, mainly in the afternoon/evening.

Baldwin’s Hay Day Forecast

On any given day there is a slim risk for a storm. However, if that chance is 20% or less I call that a good hay day this time of year. The newest guidance shows a weak disturbance that will be moving by on Friday and that may kick rain chances to 30% in the afternoon. Just be aware of that. Most of us will stay dry.

Then, Saturday looks good, before a bit better rain chance returns Sunday. Those rain chances increase to 50% coverage for Monday and Tuesday afternoons.

Yesterday’s National High and Low Temperature

High: 120 at Death Valley, California

Tropics

Tropical Storm Dolly has already weakened to a depression. For those of you disappointed in Dolly, she’ll be back. Names are recycled every six years. The only names that are retired are the ones that create so much destruction that their names are removed from the list. For instance, there will never be another storm named Katrina.

Records

On this day in 1924 there were six men working in a rock quarry just south of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. A storm moved in and they sought shelter in a building that contained dynamite. Lightning struck a nearby tree and somehow detonated the dynamite. All six men were killed instantly.

Long Range Outlook 

Average to above average temps continue to be indicated in the extended outlook. The latest data now suggest that rainfall will be above average. The first days of July could be a bit wet.

I created this for the MASTER Science class for kids (@BaldwinMasterClass) but I thought I’d share it here, as well.

You all have a great day!
