So my great idea to have a nice 4 day holiday weekend gets rained on.I was hoping a front would move through quickly and we would have a cool,but sunny weekend,now it appears a slow cutoff system will slowly move through our area with lots of rain and very cool temps only around 60.We might salvage Monday.Usually by this date we a couple of summery type days,but nothing like this is forecast,although we will start to recover to more normal temps next week,when I go back to work.
Some heavy showers and thunder yesterday afternoon and evening and even late at night to the west and south of me.Weakened as it got neat the coast with some brief heavy showers.The real story is the cool down.Dropped to 50 degrees by evening,currently at 56,cool and raw.
Front should slowly move back north and we get back into the humid air,but this may take all day to get to me.And again showers and thunderstorms will fire up this afternoon,mainly to west and south.
Yesterday's tornado death toll in Moore,Oklahoma,continues to rise.Toll is up to 91,and probably will eclipse 100 with many school children when an elementary school was demolished.
The stories are chilling,but rescuers pouring into the area and pulling many survivors out of the rubble.Today another day of severe weather,we can only pray it won't be like yesterday.
We haven't had much humid weather,a couple of days here and there,but as we approach Memorial Day weekend,we will encounter some humid weather,especially Wed. and Thu.
Right now Memorial day weekend looks on the cool side with cool mornings and somewhat warm days.But it is transistion time,so we will start to see the humid days start to increase,as we change to more summery pattern.
Certainly the large tornado outbreak in the midwest is an indication we are changing.Some serious tornado action yesterday and more to come today and tomorrow.
Prayers go out to all have been hit and all those in the area of threats today and tomorrow.
