Threats

Widespread severe weather is not expected over the next seven days. However, any storm that does develop in the heat and humidity of the afternoon/evening will have the potential to produce a damaging wind gust, heavy rainfall, and deadly cloud-to-ground lightning. Keep an eye to the sky this holiday weekend and remember that if you’re close enough to see dark clouds or hear thunder, you are close enough to be struck by lightning.

Baldwin’s Severe Weather Concern

My concern has ticked up a bit, owing to the fact that so many people will be outside this weekend. Just be aware of the radar and keep those eyes on the skies. Storm activity should be isolated, but anything that does develop could be intense.

Records

An unusually large New England tornado, at times up to 3/4 of a mile wide, cut a path from Salem Pond to Norton Pond Vermont. The twister then moved into Canada. Everything in its path was completely obliterated.

On this day in 1843 an alligator fell from the sky and landed on Anson Street in Charleston, South Carolina. A thunderstorm was raging at the time and the gator was likely picked up by a tornado and thrown onto Anson Street.

What? You’ve never seen a gator fall from the sky before? And you thought our weather was weird….. lol

Long Range Outlook 

We remain sandwiched between both below normal and above normal temps and rainfall in the extended outlook for July 7-11.
