MM’s Wx Concerns
Almanac for Yesterday
On This Day in Wx History
1987 – While those at the base of Mount Washington, New Hampshire, enjoyed sunny skies and temperatures in the 70s, the top of the mountain was blanketed with 4.7 inches of snow, along with wind gusts to 99 mph, and a temperature of 13 degrees.
Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes
High: 107° a Death Valley, California
Low: 17° at Peter Sinks, Utah
The center of attention in the tropics is Hurricane Sam. He is a powerful hurricane and will remain a powerful hurricane through this week. The good news is that he will stay away from the US mainland. Bermuda still needs to monitor the storm, as they are now within the cone of the storm’s forecast path.
There are certainly more areas to watch besides Sam. The orange-shaded region will move out to sea, so that’s no worry. The two red-shaded regions will likely evolve into our next two tropical storms. We have lots of time to track them and see what they intend to do. Our hope is that they follow Sam’s lead and just spin out to sea.

This coming week’s newsletter will feature an article about a chilly year we had on the plateau back in the 1950s, as well as article on the fires in the Sequoias and how those fires may affect us.
Coming in October, a kid’s science newsletter will be included with the MeteorologistMarkPro subscription! This has been requested many times over the past few years and by October it will be a reality! I’m so excited to be adding this to the growing list of products offered by the Pro subscription! October’s issue is looking really cool!
