July 4 Weather Independence Day AND Tropical Storm Elsa To East Coast

Uncategorized

Sunday July 4 2021

Happy Birthday America! This is not our typical Independence Day Weather. After the storms erupted last night, dense fog and chilly air was how many began this morning. 

The reason it has been so cool is this nearly stalled storm nee Halifax, Nova Scotia. That is a winter pattern, and it had kept our region and New England under the grip.

We continue to track Tropical Storm Elsa with a forecast track to Florida and close pass by Ocean City next week. Maps and timing below. 

Morning Surface Weather

 

Extremes In Boston

My friend Meteorologist Jacob Wycoff shared this amazing weather flip in his town.  They went from their hottest June day on record, to the coldest July afternoon on record in the span of just a few days.

 

 

Additional stats in Boston

  •  June was the hottest June on record for Boston.
  •  June 28-30 was the hottest June 3-day stretch on record for Boston.
  •  2nd most 90°+ days in June (9)
  •  1st 100° day in nearly 10 years.

 

Weather Almanac:

TODAY July 4

Normal Low in Baltimore:  66ºF

Record 53ºF in 1986

 

Normal High in Baltimore: 86ºF

Record 100 F 2002*

 

 

Afternoon Temperature Forecast

It will be warmer than yesterday, but still a little below our average. 

 

Radar Simulation

This HRRR Model shows a band of showers forming in the mountains after 2 PM, then reaching the western suburbs and maybe metro area by 6 PM.  This will fade was the sun goes down, so fireworks celebrations should be OK.

US Landfall near Tampa on Wednesday morning…

 

 

This will NOT be a direct hit, but a close enough path to impact our weather.

The track does come close to a direct pass between The Outer Banks (OBX) and Virginia Beach

Sunshine State Of Mind

I am done with the cold and snow (for the season). I am embracing my wife’s mantra of Sunshine State of Mind.

This was designed by Shannon Berk and we will be wearing it through spring and to the beach.

Double Benefit: Proceeds will be split between our nonprofit Just In Power Kids and the development of my new weather website. That has been scheduled to be ready to launch in May.
