We have another area in the southern Atlantic to monitor in the coming days. Right now, the chance for development looks low, but any system this time of year has to be watched very closely.



Wx Hazards Across the Nation

Heavy rainfall threatens portions of the Mid-Atlantic, while severe storms rumble across North Dakota and Minnesota. All modes of severe weather are possible.



Wx Hazards Across the Nation

Severe storms will threaten the northern plains, especially across Nebraska and southern South Dakota.



Wx Hazards Across the Nation

Severe thunderstorms look to threaten much of Minnesota.



On this day in 1984 El Paso, TX recorded 1.21 inches of rain in 45 minutes. That is the amount of rainfall they normally receive in the entire month of August! What’s worse is that another four inches of rain fell with that same storm, leaving portions of the downtown area under five feet of water!

Long Range Outlook 

Our region looks to border on average to above average temps in this period. Rainfall continues to look above average. This is for the 12th through the 16th.





Weather Shot

“It was the weirdest, craziest feeling I’ve ever felt.” A Texas man was watching a storm roll in when a bolt of lightning struck a 50-foot pine tree in his front yard – just feet from where he was sitting. I bet that was a shocking experience! (ha)

NASA Nerdology

New results from NASA’s Juno Mission to Jupiter suggest Jupiter is home to “shallow lightning.” An unexpected form of electrical discharge, it comes from an ammonia-water solution, whereas lightning on Earth originates from water clouds. How cool is that, though?


You all have a great day!
