Almanac for Yesterday
On This Day in Wx History
1836 – The first of three early-season snows brought four inches of snow to Hamilton, New York, and two inches to Ashby, Massachusetts.
Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes
High: 101° at Death Valley, California
Low: 21° at Peter Sinks, Utah
Hurricane Sam has strengthened back into a cat 4 hurricane this morning. The storm had weakened slightly to a cat 3 but that is no longer the case. Thankfully, the storm is beginning to curve out to sea and may even miss Bermuda completely. Sam will be a sight to see on satellite, as he remains a major hurricane through this week.
There are certainly other areas to watch closely, with three more areas likely becoming named tropical storms this week. However, at this time, they all look to stay away from the US mainland. Let’s hope they all just follow Sam out to sea.

Coming in October, a kid’s science newsletter will be included with the MeteorologistMarkPro subscription!
