MM’s Tues Wx Forecast for Sept 13

A European Space Agency Orbital Test Satellite (OTS-1) was lost when its US launch vehicle, a Delta 3914 rocket, exploded soon after liftoff on September 13, 1977. This was the first European-developed operational communications satellite. OTS-2 was launched successfully the next year.

On This Day 

1922 – The temperature at El Azizia in Libyia soared to 136 degrees to estbalish a world record. To make matters worse, a severe ghibi (dust storm) was in progress.

1988 – Hurricane Gilbert smashed into the Cayman Islands, and as it headed for the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico strenghtened into a monster hurricane, packing winds of 175 mph. The barometric pressure at the center of Gilbert reached 26.13 inches (888 mb), an all-time record for any hurricane in the Carribean, Gulf of Mexico, or the Atlantic Ocean. Gilbert covered much of the Gulf of Mexico, producing rain as far away as the Florida Keys.

Two areas of low pressure continue to be tracked in the Atlantic. Development is expected to be slow, but the one in the lead has the most potential to develop into a storm. It’s path is a bit concerning, though it is far too early to tell what, if any, impact the system will have on the U.S.
