Baldwin’s 7-Day forecast

Wx Blog Slides - 2020-07-06T075358.141

Daily Forecast

Today: Partly cloudy and hot and humid. A chance for an afternoon shower or storm.

Tuesday – Sunday: Generally partly cloudy and hot-n-humid. A roughly 50/50 shot at a shower or storm each day, mainly in the heat of the afternoons/evenings.

Baldwin’s Hay Day Forecast

Today should be the drier day of the outlook period, so I’ve gone ahead and raised us to a whole hay bale! Just be aware there is a slim chance for a storm this afternoon/evening.

For the rest of the week, 50/50 rain chances, mainly in the afternoon/evening, will keep us at half hay bale days. As always, you all be careful around any storm that develops in your area. Lightning can travel for up to 20 miles from a storm, and tall objects in the middle of an open hay field could be just what that strike is looking for!

Yesterday’s National High and Low Temperature

High: 117 at Death Valley, California

Low: 26 at Sand Creek Station, Oregon


The tropics are, as expected, beginning to get active this month. We have Tropical Storm Edouard out in the Atlantic. He is moving out to sea.

We have an area of disturbed weather that could easily become our sixth named storm of the season later this week off the Carolina Coast.

Then, we have another interesting system to watch near South America.

I’ll keep you posted on all the latest right here!



Wx Hazards Across the Nation

The threat for severe storms can be found across the northern plains. All modes of severe weather are possible, including a few isolated tornadoes, especially across southeast Montana and northwest South Dakota. Meanwhile, the wildfire danger begins to increase out west, beginning today in western Nevada.



Wx Hazards Across the Nation

Widespread severe weather is expected across the northern plains on Tuesday. All modes of severe weather are possible, including tornadoes. The wildfire danger becomes more widespread and dangerous out west (gray shading), where hot, dry, and windy conditions will combine to create serious fire issues.



Wx Hazards Across the Nation

Severe storms will threaten parts of Minnesota and South Dakota. A wildfire danger exists across parts of Utah and Colorado.



On this day in 1893 a violent tornado killed 71 persons on its forty-mile track across northwestern Iowa. Forty-nine persons were killed around Pomeroy, where eighty percent of the buildings were destroyed, with most leveled to the ground. Photos showed most of the town without a wall or tree left standing.

Long Range Outlook 

Near normal temps and a bit drier conditions are depicted in the long-range outlook for July 11- 15.





You all have a great day!
