(**Thursday AM I get on a plane to New York City. I’m afraid my Blog Updates will be very, very brief for a few days through Sunday as I enjoy a packed itinerary on my vacation. Some of those mornings, just the forecast. Thanks for your understanding. You’ll still hear by updates on the radio, everyday 😊)
Good Morning! Our series of beautiful, storm-free days continue. Today, we are headed for the upper 70’s again. We’ll be closer to 80 on a nearly perfect Thursday. By the weekend we’ll be in the upper 80’s. I can’t rule out a couple of isolated showers towards Friday evening. There will be spotty showers, at times Saturday through Monday, but certainly not a washout. Also, on this Blog Update, you’ll get a quick peek at what looks like a very warm week, next week. We could be wet at times, too. Here’s my brief forecast discussion.
CLIMATE DATA: Yesterday we had morning low of 46, and an afternoon high of 79. (Normal 83/57) Peak wind gust 34 mph. No Rain.
TODAY: Sunshine, warmer. High 78. Northwest wind 6 to 12 mph. Clear, chilly tonight. Low 48.
A big upper low Upper Level Low is shifting eastward into the Atlantic. A Upper Ridge of High Pressure in the middle of the country. That spells a warming trend for us. The ridge will be over us this weekend. Upper 80’s.
NEXT FEW DAYS: Our storm-free pattern continues for now. Thursday will be nearly perfect with a high near 80. Scattered showers Saturday, Sunday & Monday, but not a wash out by any means. Highs in the upper 80’s over the weekend.
Here’s the Ten Day Model Temperature Blend. Below normal this week, with some rather chilly nights. But Much Warmer Next Week.
Expected rainfall through Sunday.
DEADLY MONTGOMERY TORNADO: May 3, 1984. Five people lost their lives in a F-3 tornado around Dawn on this date 39 years ago. The fatalities happened near the Northern By-pass. It was the first of three tornado episodes that day…another at about 2PM and one more outbreak around 6PM. This young guy will never forget covering this terrible day nearly 4 decades ago. It was relentless.
