MM’s Wx Vlog
This Week’s Hazards
Sunny days and starry nights continue! The one difference is that you may notice humidity increasing by Sunday. Heat and humidity are expected to combine to create hot afternoons by Tuesday and Wednesday. There is still no measureable rainfall in sight.
Five-Day Weather Forecast
The Weekend: Mostly sunny and warm. Humidity increases by Sunday.
Monday: Continued sunny and warm.
Tuesday & Wednesday: Mostly sunny and hot.
Hiking Weather Forecast
Hiking weather continues to look good for the next several days, especially in the mornings. Be safe on trails that have lots of sun exposure in the afternoons on Tuesday and Wednesday.
On This Day
1989 – Hurricane Hugo hit the Virgin Islands, producing wind gusts to 97 mph at Saint Croix. Hurricane Hugo passed directly over the island of Saint Croix causing complete devastation and essentially cutting off the island from communications. A storm surge of five to seven feet occurred at Saint Croix. The only rain gauge left operating, at Caneel Bay, indicated 9.40 inches in 24 hours. Hurricane Hugo claimed the lives of three persons at Saint Croix, and caused more than 500 million dollars damage. A ship, Nightcap, in the harbor of Culebra, measured wind gusts as high as 170 mph!
Tennessee continues to look wet enough to avoid many dry areas being highlighted. However, with the dry streak we’re on now I expected this map to change in the coming weeks.
