Baldwin’s Hay Day Forecast

We’ll just dodge those chances for an afternoon/evening shower or storm this week. Those rain chances increase a bit by Sunday, along with heat and humidity.

Yesterday’s National High and Low Temperature

High: 118 at Death Valley, California

Low: 31 at Copper Basin, Idaho


Tropical Storm Isaias is closing in on the US coastline. The storm is expected to make landfall near the North/South Carolina border later tonight. The storm could reach minimal hurricane strength over the warm waters of the Gulf Stream Current before making landfall. Heavy rainfall and gusty winds are the main threats. The storm will then hug the East Coast as we go through the week.


Another area of low pressure may become Tropical Storm Josephine in the coming days. That storm is currently expected to steer clear of the US.



Wx Hazards Across the Nation

All eyes are on Isaias’ effects today. Heavy rainfall, gusty winds, and isolated tornadoes are expected across the Carolinas, northern Georgia, and Virginia.



Wx Hazards Across the Nation

Isaias spreads heavy rain and gusty winds up the East Coast. Meanwhile, a severe weather threat may evolve across western Nebraska and Kansas.



Wx Hazards Across the Nation

A quiet day, with the exception of rain and breezy winds from the remnants of Isaias moving through New England.



On this day in 1970 Hurricane Celia struck the coast of Texas, producing wind gusts to 161 mph at Corpus Christi, and estimated wind gusts of 180 mph at Arkansas Pass. The hurricane was the most destructive of record (to that date) along the Texas coast, causing 454 million dollars damage. The storm killed 11 people.

Long Range Outlook 

A warmer and wetter pattern may be evolving for next week (Aug 8 – 12).



Weather Shot

Satellites captured this phenomenal view of Nishinoshima erupting in the Pacific Ocean late last week. The volcano is located about 600 miles southeast of Tokyo, Japan. Pretty neat, right?

NASA Nerdology

What a relief it must have been for Behnken and Hurley when that hatch door was opened after splashdown and they knew they were safely home. I’d definitely call this a “thumbs up” kinda moment.


You all have a great day!
