Sunday June 20 2021

Good morning today is the summer solstice. The sun angle is the highest of the year, and the daylight is the longest. Our region gets 14 hours and 56 minutes of daylight, which allow us to celebrate Fathers Day to the fullest! Being a dad is the best thing that has happened to me, and this day is one of my favorites all year.


Father’s Day Weather (related) Dad Jokes

I needed to share few with you from a book I just got:

Where do naughty rainbows go?




What color is the wind?




Why did the whale cross the ocean?

To get to the other tide



Oh, I have many more! But I will save them for the right time.

Sunday Morning Surface Weather




Tropical Depression Claudette

That storm has been downgraded and entering north Georgia as expected. It is also expected to resurface off the North Carolina coast and regenerate to a Tropical Storm. This may enhance rip currents along the local beaches next week.




Severe Storm Risk Today

We are split between Claudette to our south and the complex along the Great Lakes, with Chicago as the center point.   That is the system we need to pay attention to over the next few days.




Storms Today?

There is a 30% chance for storms, mainly after 4 PM.

Radar Simulation  through midnight.




Storm Tracking:

Here we see the path and resurgence of Claudette to our south. This will NOT be a direct hit on us. But it will send ripples and more tropical moisture into the atmosphere. 

When the cold front arrives on Tuesday, storms will be likely and the risk for severe weather will be elevated. Then we get back top pleasant weather to end the week.

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.

This was designed by Shannon Berk and we will be wearing it through spring and to the beach.

Double Benefit: Proceeds will be split between our nonprofit Just In Power Kids and the development of my new weather website. That has been scheduled to be ready to launch in May.
