Threats

Widespread severe weather is not expected today, though one or two storms could be on the strong side. Any storm that develops will be capable of producing deadly cloud-to-ground lightning, gusty winds, and heavy rainfall.

Heat and humidity will be on the increase beginning tomorrow. Be careful if you’re outside in the hottest part of the day. Stay hydrated. Stay cool.

Baldwin’s Severe Weather Concern

Again, widespread severe weather is not expected, but any storm that develops could have some kick to it.

This may increase for early next week, but for now I’ll leave things as they are. Remember, any storm that develops in the heat and humidity of the afternoon can always become quite intense. Always be mindful of that cloud-to-ground lightning.

Baldwin’s Hay Day Forecast

Thursday, Friday, and Saturday continue to look like really good days to work outside in the hay fields. Afternoon storm chances increase a bit by Sunday. By Monday and Tuesday, we’re back to 50% chances for afternoon storms. I’ll look at the latest data today and do a vlog this evening to update you all on next week’s outlook.
