48-Hour Weather

Threats

Severe storms  may threaten portions of the northern plateau tonight, as a complex of storms moves out of Kentucky. I’ll keep you posted.

Widespread severe weather is not expected from Sunday to Friday. However, there is always the chance that one or two storms each day could become strong to briefly severe. Deadly cloud-to-ground lightning, heavy rainfall, and an isolated, damaging wind gust are always possible with summer storms.

Baldwin’s Severe Weather Concern

A complex of storms dropping in from the northwest may clip parts of the plateau tonight, especially north of I-40. I’ll keep an eye on this. Widespread severe weather is not expected, but sometimes these storm complexes can pack a bit of a punch for the areas they affect. This threat exist for the Dale Hollow Lake area, just in case you or anyone you know is camping up there this weekend.

Baldwin’s Hay Day Forecast

This is the worst looking hay weather forecast I’ve seen thus far! After this morning, it’s looking pretty rough for working in hay. A series of disturbances will bring ongoing rain and storm chances through this period. I’ll be sure and let you know if anything changes!

Records

On this day in 1957 Hurricane Audrey made landfall at Cameron, Louisiana. Nearly 400 people drowned in the storm surge. The only thing left standing in Cameron after the storm was a brick courthouse and a cement-block icehouse.  One of the more incredible feats of the wind was its ability to throw a 78-ton fishing boat onto an off-shore drilling platform! Some oil rigs measured wind gusts to 180 mph. A 12 foot storm surge made its way as far as 25 miles inland.  Audrey was the deadliest June hurricane on record for the US.

You all have a great day!
