MM’s Thurs Wx Forecast for June 9

A nice Thursday is in store for the Cumberland Plateau, before another weak system moves in Friday afternoon. That system will bring about a 30% for a Friday afternoon shower or storm. Those chances continue into Friday night. The weekend is looking good, with just a slight chance for a shower Saturday morning. Sunshine is back in full force by Sunday and Monday, as temperatures heat up.

As hot high pressure builds across the plains early next week, I’ll be watching for the chances for complexes of showers and storms to drop in on us from the northwest. It’s too early to tell if or when that will happen, but it’s something to keep in mind. Most of the guidance suggests that are of high pressure will extend all the way to us, keeping us dry. I’ll watch that closely.

On This Day

1953 – A tornado hit the town of Worcester, Massachusetts killing ninety persons. The northeastern states usually remain free of destructive tornadoes, however in this case a low pressure system, responsible for producing severe thunderstorms in Michigan and Ohio the previous day, brought severe weather to New Hampshire and central Massachusetts. The tornado, up to a mile in width at times, tracked 46 miles through Worcester County. It mangled steel towers built to withstand winds of 375 mph. Debris from the tornado fell in the Boston area, and adjacent Atlantic Ocean.

1977 – Silver jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain celebrated with fireworks.

  1. Hey, Mark – Your daily emails are presenting too far to the right, cutting off some of the text. This is true for both my husband’s desktop and tablet and for my desktop and tablet. And, on our phones the text is so small it is difficult to read. Has anyone else mentioned this problem to you?

    1. Hi Mimsie! Thank you for letting me know. I see what you mean. I’m not sure how to fix that. It looks like a gmail issue but I’m not sure. I’ll start including the link to the site at the beginning of the email until I can get this resolved.
