for June 23

June 23, 1902 
The temperature at Volcano Springs, CA, soared to 129 degrees to set a June record for the U.S. (Sandra and TI Richard Sanders) 

June 23, 1944 
Four tornadoes killed 153 persons and caused five million dollars damage in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Maryland. The tornadoes formed during the evening and moved southeast along parallel paths flattening everything in their way. The town of Shinnston WV was leveled, and was left with the majority of the causalities. Until that time it was believed that damaging tornadoes did not travel across mountainous terrain. (David Ludlum) 

June 23, 1957 
A few miles west of Fort Stockton TX, softball size hail injured 21 persons unable to find shelter, mostly farm laborers. Some livestock were killed. (The Weather Channel) 

June 23, 1987 
A massive hailstorm hit eastern Colorado causing an estimated 60 to 70 million dollars damage. At La Junta, CO, hail as large as softballs caused 37 million dollars damage. (Storm Data) (The National Weather Summary) 

June 23, 1988 
Thirty-four cities reported record high temperatures for the date. The reading of 90 degrees at Bluefield, WV, equaled their record for the month of June. The record high of 104 degrees at Billings, MT, was their thirteenth of the month. (The National Weather Summary) 

June 23, 1989 
Six cities in the High Plains Region reported record low temperatures for the date, including Sheridan, WY, with a reading of 38 degrees. Showers and thunderstorms in the eastern U.S. deluged New Castle County, DE, with 2.5 inches of rain in one hour. (The National Weather Summary)

    • MD 1784 CONCERNING SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH POSSIBLE FOR FAR NORTHEAST KANSAS...NORTHWEST MISSOURI...AND SOUTHERN IOWA Mesoscale Discussion 1784 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0245 AM CDT Sun Aug 18 2019 Areas affected...far northeast Kansas...northwest Missouri...and southern Iowa Concerning...Severe potential...Watch possible Valid 180745Z - 180945Z Probability of Watch Issuance...40 percent SUMMARY...Thunderstorms have developed across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri this morning. These thunderstorms will be capable of hail and gusty winds. A watch is not currently expected, but conditions will be monitored. DISCUSSION...Thunderstorms have developed this morning across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri, likely in response to ascent stemming from the ageostrophic mass response to the thunderstorms across central Kansas. This is suggested by broad region of surface pressure falls the last few hours. The airmass here is moderately to very unstable with most-unstable CAPE values around 2000-3000 J/kg. Deep-layer shear is sufficient for promoting thunderstorm updraft/downdraft organization, thus a severe hail or wind threat cannot be ruled out this morning. One negative for a more widespread severe event will be the expanding precipitation shield from the mesoscale convective system to the southwest. This may act to limit the overall instability available locally to thunderstorm updrafts, resulting in a more isolated/episodic severe potential, rather than a sustained one. Given the uncertainty, the need for a watch is unclear. Presently a watch is currently not expected, but conditions will continue to be maintained. ..Marsh/Edwards.. 08/18/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • MD 1783 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 594...595... FOR KANSAS...NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA...SOUTHWEST MISSOURI...AND EXTREME NORTHWEST ARKANSAS Mesoscale Discussion 1783 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0142 AM CDT Sun Aug 18 2019 Areas affected...Kansas...northeast Oklahoma...southwest Missouri...and extreme northwest Arkansas Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 594...595... Valid 180642Z - 180815Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 594, 595 continues. SUMMARY...Thunderstorms continue across much of Kansas this morning. The leading edge of the thunderstorms continues to push toward northeast Oklahoma and southwest Missouri. Gusty thunderstorm winds and hail will be the primary severe threat with these storms. A new watch is being considered for portions of northeast Oklahoma and southwest Missouri. DISCUSSION...Another round of thunderstorms is ongoing across much of Kansas this morning. The convection has organized itself into another "bow and arrow" mesoscale convective system (MCS). The leading edge of this MCS (the bow) is quickly moving southeast toward far southeast Kansas, northeast Oklahoma, and southwest Missouri. The environment along and ahead of this bow is characterized by deep-layer shear on the order of 40 knots and most-unstable CAPE values around 2000-2500 J/kg. Additionally, mixed-layer convective inhibition actually weakens the farther east this MCS moves. Thus a continuation of severe potential in areas outside of Severe Thunderstorm Watch #594 is possible. As such, a new watch is being considered. Upstream from the bow, the "arrow" thunderstorms across central Kansas will continue within a moderately unstable and sufficiently sheared airmass to continue the potential for hail and gusty winds for at least another few hours. Therefore an extension in time of Severe Thunderstorm Watch #584 may be needed. ..Marsh.. 08/18/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product... ATTN...WFO...SGF...EAX...TSA...TOP...ICT...
