Yesterday’s Weather Statistics
Radar-Estimated Rainfall for Yesterday
On This Day
1970 – Dry thunderstorms ignited more than one hundred fires in the Wenatchee and Okanogan National Forests of Washington State. Hot, dry, and windy weather spread the fires, a few of which burned out of control through the end of the month. More than 100,000 acres burned.
2005 – Hurricane Katrina forms over the Bahamas, later becoming a category 5 hurricane.
While Tropical Storm Franklin will make a move toward the U.S. early next week, it now looks as if the storm will pass between Bermuda and the U.S. coastline as it curves out to sea. The storm is expected to be a hurricane by then and will continue to be monitored closely.
Elsewhere, there are other disturbances to watch on satellite, but they are expected to stay well away from the U.S. Notice the remanants of Harold just east of the Big Bend region of Texas. That storm brought heavy rainfall and very gusty winds to southern Texas yesterday, but it continues to weaken as it moves west today.
I’m so proud to be contracted with Crossville City Fire to provide critical weather support for emergency services!
