Monday June 21 2021

There is a very tropical feel to the atmosphere today. Temps remained in the 70s and the dew points are up there as well. This afternoon many areas will have a heat index pushing 100ºF.

To our south, Claudette has regained Tropical Storm status as it exits off of the North Carolina coast. This will move out into the Atlantic, but is influencing our set up.

An approaching cold front will work on the unsettled atmosphere to kick off some severe storm today and a band of heavy rain tomorrow. Then we will get back to pleasant weather by Wednesday.

This shows the impressive small circulation of TS Claudette to our south and the moisture from the approaching cold front to our west.

The cold front will bring a more solid period of rain, but should cut down on the severe risk.

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.
