Sunday July 11 2021

You may have heard about excessive heat in the southwestern US. Death Valley, CA is pushing 130ºF today, close to the all time record of 134ºF set in 1913.  It’s been standing for over 100 years.

That is NOT what is heading our way, but we will be in a stretch of summer heat with increased humidity and afternoon storms. 

Morning Surface Weather

A band of rain passed by early this morning. The dampness has made for a muggy morning, and will push a humid afternoon. 



Severe Storm Outlook

The risk for thunderstorms turning severe today is ‘marginal’. The storms themselves only have about 40% risk for the region, and of them less than 30% can turn severe. However, there will be a risk for dangerous lightning with any shower that pops up.





Radar Simulation 

These short range models have not done the best job, so I would not lock in on specifics here. Simply the increased storm expectation this afternoon and settling down this evening.

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.
