Saturday June 19 2021
Tropical Storm Claudette was officially named by the National Hurricane Center. It had winds of 45 mph with gusts to 60 mph at 5 AM EDT. This may be simply academic as it was just around the time of landfall before sunrise. It is inland now and already weakening.
Tropical Satellite Loop
Tropical Storm force winds extend 205 mikes from the center. It is a large system, but bit well organized.
Heavy rain between between 4 to 12 inches is now pounding east of Louisiana into Alabama and Georgia.
Out Severe Storm Risk Today
With respect to our region in the Mid Atlantic, Claudette is NOT OUR STORM. We have a different system affecting us today, and another cold front that will bring us strong storms Tuesday. However there will be tropical moisture from Claudette that will help enhance that.
I have had so many requests for help about events today and storms. Today will bring pop up showers, and some may be strong. But they will be hit or miss. More widespread rain and storms will build in tonight after dark.

This storm will pass to our south, then off of the coast, where it may regenerate. For most of us, it will send two impacts to our region.
- Ripples in the atmosphere will help trigger more scattered storms our way Monday.
- Additional tropical moisture will feed into the next cold front.

Sunshine State Of Mind
I am done with the cold and snow (for the season). I am embracing my wife’s mantra of Sunshine State of Mind.
