10:20 AM | *The deadly heat wave of July 1936 and perhaps the worst ever in the US*

Paul Dorian

One of the most widespread and destructive heat waves ever recorded in the US took place in the summer of 1936 which fell right in the middle of the hottest and driest decade ever for the nation. The decade of the 1930’s is renowned for the “Great Depression” and the “Dust Bowl”, both of which caused calamitous human suffering in this country.  Not only were huge numbers of crops destroyed by the heat and lack of moisture in the “Dust Bowl” era, but thousands of lives were lost as a result of the heat, drought and economic hardship. Many of the all-time high temperature records that were set in the decade of the 1930’s still stand today.  The heat wave experienced in 1936 began in late June, reached a peak in July, and didn’t really come to an end until September.  This extreme heat wave was particularly deadly; especially, in high population areas where air conditioning was still in the early stages of development.

7:00 AM | Couple of shots at decent rainfall this week...frontal passage on Tuesday enhances chances for rain as will a weekend upper-level trough

Paul Dorian

A change to a more comfortable weather pattern in the Mid-Atlantic region will begin over the next couple of days with the passage of a strong cool frontal system. Following this initial frontal passage later tomorrow, more comfortable air will push into the region for the mid and late week. By the weekend, a deep upper-level trough is likely to form over the Great Lakes and this will lead to an unsettled weekend. This initial strong cool frontal passage may result in decent rainfall around here later tomorrow with numerous showers and possible thunderstorms. The weekend system is likely to generate some more decent rainfall as well in the Mid-Atlantic region.

7:00 AM | A good shot at some more decent rainfall next few days

Paul Dorian

There will be a change to the overall weather pattern this week with the breaking down of the upper-level ridge of high pressure that has dominated the scene in the Southeast US in recent days. A strong cool front and its associated upper-level trough will drop southeastward over the next 24 hours from the Great Lakes and towards the Northeast US bringing us an enhanced chance of showers and storms from later today into mid week.

A strong cool front and its associated upper-level trough will drop southeastward over the next few days from the Great Lakes and towards the Northeast US bringing us an enhanced chance of showers and storms from later today into tomorrow night. Drier air should move into the region at mid week following the passage of the cool frontal system.

7:00 AM | Heat and humidity to build over the weekend...a couple of shots at some decent rainfall next week

Paul Dorian

High pressure over the Northeast US will continue to be the dominant player around here as we head into the weekend and there will be plenty of sunshine and warm conditions for the next couple of days. The heat and humidity will build as we head into the latter stages of the weekend and the early part of next week and so will the chances for showers and thunderstorms. In fact, there could even be a substantial (and much needed) rain event by later Tuesday into Wednesday depending on the progression of a strong cool frontal system as it closes in on the east coast from the Upper Midwest. In addition, there are signs for a deep upper-level trough to form in the eastern US at the end of next week and this could lead to a second significant rain event in the I-95 corridor. An overall cooler weather pattern appears likely for the Mid-Atlantic region later in the month.

7:00 AM | Much the same with highs near 90 degrees and mainly inland showers/storms

Paul Dorian

The main players on the Florida weather scene as we head into the weekend will be the subtropical ridge over the western Atlantic and a weakening frontal system moving into the Southeast US. This combination will allow for sea breeze boundaries to form and push inland each day through the weekend. The result will be a better chance for showers and thunderstorms at inland locations during the late afternoon/early evening hours.
