MM’s Sat Wx Forecast for June 25

Wx Summary

An unsettled weather pattern has developed across the region and that will lead to rain for most, if not all, of us by Monday. For our Saturday, just look for a chance for afternoon and evening showers and storms. Not everyone will see them, but there will likely be some storms around the area. By Sunday, that rain chance increases to 50% coverage. By Sunday evening and night, that chance increases to at least 80%! The front pushes through on Monday, kicking up a few more storms, before leaving us with cooler and less humid conditions for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Drought Outlook

Drought info can be found at my link at That link also allows you to compare this week’s map with last week’s. The maps update each Thursday.

On This Day

1749 – A general fast was called on account of drought in Massachusetts. It was the year of the famous dry spring in which fields and villages burned.

1929 – US President Herbert Hoover authorizes building of Boulder Dam (Hoover Dam).


Hurricane Forecast

There are now two areas to monitor for possible tropical development. Both are not expected to be problematic until early next week. The yellow-shaded area should be of interest to anyone with beach plans next week. The orange-shaded region may stay too far south to impact the U.S.
