The only threat facing our region this week is from Hurricane Delta. That system could bring gusty winds, heavy rainfall, and some severe weather to our area, depending on the exact track. I’ll keep a close eye on it!
Meteorologist Mark’s Severe Wx Concern
A dry and stable airmass through Thursday will leave us free of any storms.
The exact track of Delta will determine what kind of storms we get from Delta. Right now, the track is such that my concern for severe weather is on the low end of the scale. Stay tuned.
Hay Wx Forecast
This week is still looking great…until we get to Friday. Hurricane Delta will likely bring cloudy skies by Thursday night, with rain developing as we go through the day Friday. That rain could be with us through much of Saturday and may even be heavy. Get that hay work done by Thursday evening.
On This Day in Wx History
On this day in 1984, the temperature at Honolulu, Hawaii, reached 94 degrees to establish an all-time record at that location. Don’t you just want to say, “Bless your hearts”? (ha)
Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes
High: 109° at Brawley, California
Low: 17° at Grand Lake, Colorado
Hurricane Delta remains in very warm waters this morning and will spend much of its life over warm water. The only thing that will hold this storm back is a just a bit of wind shear across the northern Gulf of Mexico when it enters that area Friday. Delta is expected to be a very powerful hurricane in the Gulf and will likely be a very powerful hurricane when it makes landfall Friday night along the northern Gulf Coast. If you have plans to go to the beach for Fall break, please pay close attention to the forecast, as things can always change. I’ll be keeping a very, very close eye on Delta, as it even looks to make a run toward our neck of the woods by the weekend.
Today’s National Wx Hazards
A wildfire danger can be found across parts of North Dakota, but most eyes are watching Hurricane Delta near the southern Gulf of Mexico.
Tomorrow’s National Wx Hazards
All eyes will be on a powerful Hurricane Delta.
8 – 14 Day Outlook
Warm weather looks to overspread the country in the 8-14 day outlook. That warmth is accompanied by lots of dry weather for most, with the exception of the Northeast and Pacific Northwest, two areas that need rain the most.
We had an awesome evening of learning about hurricanes yesterday at TCAT! We had so many kids who were so eager to learn about hurricanes. A great big “thank you” to all who came out! It was a blast and we’ll do it again soon!
Fresh fruits and veggies have arrived at the International Space Station! The good thing about getting supplies from Wallops is that fresh food comes with those supplies. At Wallops, the rocket can be tilted on its side just hours before blast off, allowing the loading of fresh fruit and vegetables to send to the space station. If you recall, this load left Wallops Friday and arrived at the space station this morning. Enjoy that fresh food, astronauts!
