1983- Crossville reports its highest temperature ever in August, at 99 degrees.

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  106° at Death Valley, California

I will have much more on this later today, as well as in my MM WeatherLetter next week! I’ll also have more info on Hurricane Grace, which made landfall last evening. This is an incredible situation and one that we don’t see too often; a hurricane making landfall in New England. Henri has maximum sustained winds of 70 mph and is continuing to gradually strengthen. The storm is expected to make landfall as a cat 1 hurricane Sunday afternoon on near or on Long Island.

Past 24-Hour Earthquake Activity

The red dots are the most recent, and the larger dots represent the magnitude of the quake.

There’s been a little shaking going on in different places across the country over the past 24 hours. It’s nothing incredibly unusual, but certainly interesting.
