Almanac for Yesterday
On This Day in Wx History
1961 – Very large and slow moving Hurricane Carla made landfall near Port Lavaca, Texas. Carla battered the central Texas coast with wind gusts to 175 mph, and up to 16 inches of rain, and spawned a vicious tornado which swept across Galveston Island killing eight persons. The hurricane claimed 45 lives, and caused 300 million dollars damage. The remnants of Carla produced heavy rain in the Lower Missouri Valley and southern sections of the Upper Great Lakes Region.
Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes
High: 115° at Death Valley, California
Low: 28° at both Albany, Wyoming & Walden, Colorado
The tropics remain interesting. The National Hurricane Center now expects that system in the Gulf to affect Texas much more than they were earlier. It has always looked like they would get rain from that system, now they may get even higher impacts. The storm is not expected to become a hurricane, but those water are very warm and that system will have to be watched very closely.
Meanwhile, two systems will need to be watched closer to Africa. We have plenty of time to see what they do.
