At a Glance
Hazardous weather is not expected over the next seven days.
Baldwin’s Severe Weather Concern
A cooler and more stable air mass has settled into our region, preventing severe storms for the next several days.
Baldwin’s 7-Day forecast
Labor Day Weekend (Sat – Mon): Partly cloudy to mostly sunny. Very pleasant and fall-like.
Tuesday: Partly cloudy and a bit warmer.
Wednesday: Partly cloudy, with a slight chance for an afternoon/evening shower or storm.
Thursday – Friday: A slightly better chance for a mainly afternoon/evening shower or storm. Otherwise, partly cloudy.
Baldwin’s Hay Day Forecast
Hey, that’s a good-looking hay weather forecast! I may have to take Thursday and Friday down to half bales in future outlooks, if rain chances increase in the afternoons, but the rest of the forecast period is looking just fine!
Yesterday’s National High and Low Temperature
High: 122 at Death Valley, California
Low: 22 at Peter Sinks, Utah
The tropics remain active but that activity is confined to the eastern Atlantic for now. Two of those areas now have a high chance of developing into named storms. The next named storm will be Paulette. We have several days to track these systems, as they slowly make their way across the Atlantic.
Today’s Wx Hazards Across the Nation
It’s a rather quiet day across the country, with the exception of an area across southern Minnesota and northern Iowa, where the risk for a severe storm and heavy rainfall can be found. The wildfire danger remains high across parts of Montana and Idaho, as well.
Tomorrow’s Wx Hazards Across the Nation
Severe storms may threaten northern Illinois, as a vigorous disturbance passes by. The wildfire danger is rather widespread out west, stretching from Idaho to Colorado. Another wildfire danger exists across a large potion of central and northern Nebraska. Notice wintry precip showing up across western Montana.
Monday’s Wx Hazards Across the Nation
Look at all that wintry precipitation across the northern plains! Wow! Many areas could see their earliest snowfall on record. Denver will go from highs in the 90s on Sunday to snow on Monday night. The change of seasons can be a wild ride!
On This Day
A heat wave on this day in 1954 brought the hottest September temperatures on record to many Tennessee cities and towns. Crossville reached a scorching high of 99 degrees that day, setting a record high for that day. A far cry from today!
Long Range Outlook
The 10th – 14th features a very chilly US, with some record lows possible for many folks across the plains. We’re looking cool and a bit wet here on the plateau.
Professional Storm Chaser Mike Olbinski (@MikeOlbinski) captured this image in Arizona City, Arizona on July 12th. During monsoon season, storms kick up lots of dust and that’s just what happened here. The rainbow was a nice touch, though.
Forty-four years ago this week the Viking 2 lander touched down on Mars. The purpose of the lander was to help answer the question, “Was there ever life on Mars?” We are still trying to answer that question today, thought evidence to support past life on Mars is beginning to accumulate! Data from the Viking landers is still used today.
