The latest episode of Wx Insights is about giving people the "all clear" after hazardous weather has passed.
And I still have not seen an official storm survey for the Owens Cross Roads severe thunderstorm that happened roughly a week ago. I think that probably means that the National Weather Service office in Huntsville staff are taking their time and doing it right, which is something I admire when I see it, especially in the era of instant everything. For anybody needing a follow-up on that, here is a video of the damage from WHNT-19. And to salute them tonight, I think I will refrain from posting a 10-Day-Forecast, even as a joke, because I think they are the only station left in Huntsville that doesn't strike a pose of being able to do that with accuracy. Which is ironic, because I remember a time they were the only station that did try it out in the market.
Also a salute to Jason Simpson, who replaced Dan Satterfield at that station for a while as their lead meteorologist and now works in Birmingham at WVTM-13, where he replaced Jerry Tracey when he retired. Jason picked up on this heatwave we've got coming sooner than any other source I saw.
The Tennessee Emergency Management Agency is collaborating with local NWS offices to provide weather safety information in both English and in Spanish. Not to become a total sycophant this evening, but I really applaud this too. The language gap has been acknowledged as a problem at least since the big tornado outbreak of April 2011. Some of the best meteorologists reflected that they could have done better communicating severe weather information to the Hispanic community. And without getting too far into politics (or religion), I do often feel that our culture at this point could use a dose of what Albert Schweitzer called "reverence for life". So anyway, kudos to these folks trying to make some of the right steps.
We had a mostly sunny day in the Tennessee Valley with variable winds and a bit of a breeze at times. The High in Cullman was 88 after a morning Low of 64. Jasper got all the way up to 91 after a Low of 61. Decatur had a similar temperature gradient, High of 92, Low of 62. The Huntsville/Madison County Airport saw a High of 90 and Low of 62. The Huntsville International Airport saw a High of 92 and a Low of 66. Fort Payne saw more clouds and haze today and only made it up to 86 degrees after a morning Low of 60. Up across the Tennessee state line, Fayetteville saw a High of 88, after a morning Low of 63. And Winchester had a High of 86 after a morning Low of 61.
About the only significant, organized rain around here is down in Florida. The frontal boundary has parked itself along the Gulf Coast again, down around Mobile and Pensacola, will not be causing us any more problems. That was such a strange pattern we got in. At first I dismissed it in the model guidance, and thought even if it happened, it would not last but a day or two. And as time went on, I realized it was some of the weirdest weather we've had for early June in about 25 years. Other people, seasoned meteorologists, were saying things like that and describing it as "anomalous". The pattern we're in now, with that High pressure settling in and strong Northwest wind flow at the upper levels of the atmosphere, is far more usual for this time of the year.
Tropical Storm Cindy also has a nice satellite presentation but is staying well out over the waters of the Atlantic, moving Northwest. It is a toss-up at this point as to whether it will weaken or regenerate over the next approximately three days.
Having said that, we do have a risk for thunderstorms to become severe further to our North and West tomorrow before they move in here, probably during the evening and night hours. Wherever those storms hit, they may still pack a punch. They will be capable of producing damaging wind gusts and/or large hail. These can be a threat to life and property.
