Today’s Stats

Almanac for Yesterday

On This Day in Wx History

1956- Crossville’s low of 42 degrees establishes a new record for the month.

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  109° at both Stovepipe Wells & Death Valley, California

Low:   28° at both Peter Sinks, Utah and Big Piney, Wyoming  


As expected, Hurricane Henri has weakened slightly as it approached the coast of New England. Tropical Storm Henri is packing 70 mph winds and those will weaken significantly after landfall. Never the less, Henri will bring a rough day of weather to parts of New England. I thing one meteorologist said it best, this storm is like a Nor’easter on steroids.

Keep in mind that this area is accustomed to powerful winter storms (Nor’easters). They’re no stranger to high winds, big waves, and heavy rainfall. However, during those winter storms there’s no foliage on the trees. That will make a big difference when it comes to tree damage from this storm. Flooding, as with any tropical system, will be the main threat from this system and that is what has many of us worried most about.

Tracking the Fire and Smoke 

It’s impressive at how far the smoke travels (gray shading). Also, notice all the wildfires that continue out west, and even across eastern Alaska. You can see the influence of “Henri” on the smoke in New England.
