A very warm Friday is in store for the plateau, with only the slightest risk for an evening shower or storm. Those rain chances increase a bit for the weekend. In fact, by Sunday night the rain chance is set at 50%. That activity lingers into Monday before the front pushes it out of here.

On This Day
1924 – Six men at a rock quarry south of Winston-Salem, NC, sought shelter from a thunderstorm. The structure chosen contained a quantity of dynamite. Lightning struck a near-by tree causing the dynamite to explode. The men were killed instantly.
1930 – 1st detection of airplane using reflected radio waves, a precursor to radar, by US Naval Research Laboratory engineers, Anacostia, Washington, D.C.
An area of disturbed weather is being watched closely in the Atlantic. This is about a week away from getting into the Caribbean (that farthest west point on the shaded path below). This will likely become our next named storm.

This week’s MM newsletter is about a story I found about a little town in West Virginia and how they deal with the heat. It’s interesting enough to share in a newsletter! That letter will publish by this afternoon. If you find this kind of info interesting, you might consider subscribing to the newsletter at https://meteorologistmarkpro.com/! It’s only $5 a month or $50 a year, with proceeds supporting my education outreach programs with the kids.
