A heat wave is expected to settle in into the area by the middle and end of next week. Heat indices could be in the mid to upper 90s. We’ll have to be safe in the heat.

Daily Forecast

Today: Mostly sunny. Hot and humid.

Sunday: Scattered showers and storms. Some storms could be severe.

Monday – Tuesday: Mostly sunny and pleasant, with low humidity.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny, but a bit more humid. Hot.

Thursday -Friday: Sunny. Hot and humid. Dangerous heat indices in the mid to upper 90s. A slim chance for an afternoon/evening storm.

Baldwin’s Hay Day Forecast

Once we get passed Sunday, we’ll see a streak of good hay days! If you need to do any cutting I’d wait until Monday. Low humidity early next week will let that cut hay really dry out fast. Keep in mind that heat indices will be in the mid to upper 90s by the end of next week. We’ll have to make sure we stay safe in the heat.

The last advisory was issued on Fay at 4:00 am today. Now, the system is a remnant low, producing heavy rainfall and gusty winds across parts of New England today.

The remnants of Fay will cause flooding rainfall to be possible across parts of New England. Meanwhile, a significant severe weather outbreak is expected across the central US, with the main threat being very damaging straight-line winds.

This is a pic from the International Space Station on July 10th. Notice the comet left of center. That’s comet Neowise. I’ll be printing this off and making an 8×10 of it. What a view….what a view….

Keep in mind that Neowise should be visible in our western skies after sunset beginning tomorrow. It may be hard to see with the naked eye, but binoculars should certainly make it visible. I’ll have much more on this in a special blog update Sunday afternoon!


You all have a great day!
