The weather, currently.
We start this week out with a boom, of thunder that is. We have chances of thunderstorms every day this week. Here’s a weather tip: try to get any outdoor activities done in the morning if you can. Most thunderstorms occur in the afternoon because you need more heat for thunderstorms to form.
Here’s your Monday forecast:
- The morning will be mild with temperatures in the 50s and 60s.
- We see thunderstorms in the afternoon and temperatures in the 80s.
- Chances of thunderstorms last through the overnight hours.
What you need to know, currently.
Currently’s Rebecca McCarthy wrote a piece last week on the man who began naming hurricanes after people,
“In 1902, a man named Clement Wragge aimed a cannon at the sky in Queensland, Australia and hoped for rain. Wragge was a visionary freak among meteorologists — orphaned at the age of five, he was trained in cosmology and meteorology by his grandmother and would later become quite interested in spiritualism. By most accounts, he was a foul-mouthed, short-tempered man, with a turbulent personal life and an unlikely relationship with Brigham Young, but today he’s generally regarded as one of the more influential figures in weather forecasting.”
