Let us help you AFTER the storm
You just finished plowing for the day. You’re tired, but you flick on the news anyway to see the snowfall totals that were reported. Well to your surprise, the news said 8 inches fell, you measured 9 inches, but a guy on Facebook said he had 10 inches all in the same town! What gives?
A Sultry Summer Weekend Ahead...
The hottest days of the summer will be right at our doorsteps come this weekend. Temperatures are expected to rise well into the upper 90s to lower 100s across all of the I-95 Corridor. It does thankfully look as though most of the weekend will be "dry", though we do have to get through a few disturbances. The first disturbance is with a frontal boundary that's currently bringing showers and storms to parts of Southern New England; and later to parts of NJ and PA.
Fighting Frost with Helicopters
There are many types of economies that call California home, but the biggest and most widespread is the agriculture industry. In fact, California is the leading producer of food with nearly $45 billion dollars in agriculture cash receipts! Unfortunately, crops are very susceptible to the weather, especially the cold. Two crops, grapes and almonds, are very prone to freezing temperatures. You are probably asking yourself what makes almond trees or grape vines so susceptible to the cold?
Heat Rising, more Storms this Week.
With high pressure in control, Monday has been nice across the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast with any shower/storm risks remaining to the west over the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes. Although it's warm with many well into the 80s, the humidity levels have been rather low. However, this will all change starting tomorrow as a warm front will press through the region and the high pressure area slides east.
A Peek at the Tropics
We are over a month into the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season and so far it’s been quiet. We have had only one named system so far (Subtropical Storm Andrea) and it didn’t impact anyone as it developed harmlessly over the central Atlantic in late May. This is not unusual as we only average 2 named storms before August 1st. And again, while Andrea didn’t affect anyone, we may not be as lucky with our next named storm. A storm system is expected to develop over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico this week, and then travel west.

Need Rainfall History?
Summer has arrived and so has plenty of rain! The past 12 months in particular have been record breakers for many across the U.S. Accordingly, it has become ever more necessary to document just how wet it has been due to the impacts on various projects. Here at WeatherWorks, we are always striving to provide our clients with useful ways to present past data. Our Data & Stats Department is excited to unveil a new product that tailors to that very need!
June 2019: Storms Continue, Heat Builds
Compared to the previous month, severe weather was a bit less widespread in June 2019. However, the same active pattern that we saw in May continued through the first half of the month, with intervals of upper level ridging and troughing. This pattern brought warm-ups followed by cool shots through the first two weeks, especially across New England. By the second half of the month, however, this all started to change. More prominent and longer lasting ridging pushed in increasingly humid and tropical air masses.
