MM’s Mon Wx Blog for June 7

MM News

I had the greatest pleasure of being treating to lunch by one of the best neighbors a guy could ask for yesterday! Ms. Pat Ewing is a big Meteorologist Mark fan and she invited me over to meet her visiting sister from Pennsylvania. She also invited over neighbors Steve and Mary Smith. I want to send a very special thank you to Pat for treating me like a celebrity. There’s just nothing like the combination of good food and good company!

Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Concerns

Keep in mind that any storm that develops this week will be capable of producing deadly cloud-to-ground lightning, gusty winds, and very heavy rainfall in a short period of time. Any outdoor plans ought to be made with a quick indoor back-up plan.

Almanac for Yesterday

Tropics 

The National Hurricane enter is monitoring an area of low pressure in the Caribbean, just east of Costa Rica. This area of low pressure has about a 20% chance for developing within the next five days.

Sun & The Moon 

Planting by the Moon (New!)

On This Day in Wx History

1816 – A famous June snow occurred in the northeastern U.S. Danville, Vermont, reported drifts of snow and sleet twenty inches deep! The Highlands were white all day, and flurries were observed as far south as Boston.

For reference, Boston is expecting a high of 95 degrees today!

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  114° at Stovepipe Wells, California

Low:   23° at Sand Creek Station, Oregon 

Monday Sun Day

When the sun is studied, scientists find that while quantifying the visible colors in sunlight, they show up in approximately equal amounts.

Critically, though, these frequencies aren’t present in precisely the same amount, it’s just that the variances aren’t significant enough to be meaningful. The color components of sunlight are so close enough to being present in equal amounts that it is much more correct to say that the sun is white than to say it is yellow, orange, or any other single, pure color. In other words, the sun is white.

Today’s Tennessee Weather 

It’s a wet Monday for much of the Volunteer state, with scattered showers and thunderstorms from Memphis to Bristol. Any storm that develops today will be capable of deadly cloud-to-ground lightning, gusty winds, and torrential downpours of rain.

Tonight’s Tennessee Weather 

It will be a warm and muggy night across the area, with a chance for a shower or thunderstorm. Clouds and southerly breezes will keep temperatures around 70 degrees overnight for everyone.

Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather 

It’s another day of cloudy skies and dodging scattered showers and thunderstorms. Like on Monday, any storm that develops will be capable of producing deadly cloud-to-ground lightning, gusty winds, and very heavy rainfall. Thunderstorms will likely be most common in the afternoon hours.

Drought Monitor

The drought monitor is updated each Thursday.

Will Eades (@WillEadesPhoto) is the lucky guy behind this photo. Different colorations of lightning are the result of the temperature of the lightning, as well as the composition of the atmosphere.

NASA Nerdology 

Ganymede is the largest moon in the solar system, bigger even than the planet Mercury. We’ll get the closest look at Ganymede we’ve had in more than 20 years when the Juno Mission makes a close flyby TODAY! For those who don’t know, Ganymede is one of Jupiter’s moons.

You all have a great day and keep lookin’ up!
