MM’s Thur Wx Forecast for June 16

Wx Summary

Another hot and humid day is in store for the plateau, with only slight rain chances. A cold front will pass through on Friday and bring a bit better chance for rain. Behind that front, a less humid air mass will settle in. Saturday looks pleasant but by Sunday that dry air starts heating up. We start the week with another, albeit less humid, heat wave.

On This Day

1944 – A tornado in Sioux City, Iowa, traveled an odd course. It spun in one place for about twenty minutes, made a U-turn, traveled southeast for about three miles, then traveled south, east, north, and finally east again.

1858 – Abraham Lincoln says “A house divided against itself cannot stand” accepting Illinois Republican Party’s nomination for the Senate.


Hurricane Forecast

The disturbance in the Caribbean is struggling and the struggle looks to continue in the days ahead. Interaction with land is really tearing this system apart. It now has only a 20% chance of developing into a tropical storm.

    1. Thanks for letting me know. WordPress had an update that originally made my text super small on mobile devices. It seems now the opposite is true. Hopefully, they’ll get this all straightened out soon.
