for June 28 


June 28, 1788 
The Battle of Monmouth in central New Jersey was fought in sweltering heat. The temperature was 96 degrees in the shade, and there were more casualties from the heat than from bullets. (David Ludlum) 

June 28, 1892 
The temperature at Orogrande UT soared to 116 degrees to establish a record for the state. (Sandra and TI Richard Sanders) 

June 28, 1923 
A massive tornado hit Sandusky, OH, then swept across Lake Erie to strike the town of Lorain. The tornado killed 86 persons and caused twelve million dollars damage. The tornado outbreak that day was the worst of record for the state of Ohio up til that time. (David Ludlum) 

June 28, 1975 
Lee Trevino and two other golfers are struck by lightning at the Western Open golf tournament in Oak Brook, IL. (The Weather Channel) 

June 28, 1980 
The temperature at Wichita Falls, TX, soared to 117 degrees, their hottest reading of record. Daily highs were 110 degrees or above between the 24th of June and the 3rd of July. (The Weather Channel) 

June 28, 1987 
Thunderstorms developing along a cold front produced severe weather in the north central U.S. Thunderstorms in Nebraska produced wind gusts to 70 mph and baseball size hail at Arapahoe, and wind gusts to 80 mph along with baseball size hail at Wolback and Belgrade. Six cities in the Ohio Valley reported record low temperatures for the date, including Cincinnati, OH, with a reading of 50 degrees. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

June 28, 1988 
Showers and thunderstorms brought much needed rains to parts of the central U.S. Madison, WI, received 1.67 inches of rain, a record for the date, and their first measurable rain since the Mother's Day tornado outbreak on the 8th of May. (The National Weather Summary) 

June 28, 1989 
Evening thunderstorms deluged Winnfield LA with eleven inches of rain in four hours and fifteen minutes, and Baton Rouge LA reported 11 inches of rain in two days. Totals in west central Louisiana ranged up to 17 inches. Thunderstorms produced severe weather in the Northern High Plains. Two inch hail broke windows in nearly every building at Comstock, NE. Thunderstorms in North Dakota produced two inch hail at Killdeer, and golf ball size hail at Zap. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)

    • MD 1786 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 596... FOR NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA...FAR NORTHWEST ARKANSAS...AND SOUTHWEST MISSOURI Mesoscale Discussion 1786 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0609 AM CDT Sun Aug 18 2019 Areas affected...northeast Oklahoma...far northwest Arkansas...and southwest Missouri Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 596... Valid 181109Z - 181215Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 596 continues. SUMMARY...Thunderstorm coverage and intensity continues to diminish this morning across the region. Severe Thunderstorm Watch #596 may need to be canceled early. DISCUSSION...Thunderstorm coverage and intensity continues to wane across the area this morning. Radar presentation continues to show a decrease in reflectivity and infrared satellite imagery indicates warming cloud tops. Thus, the near-term severe risk appears to have decreased substantially. Although reintensification may occur as diurnal heating commences, confidence in this is low given just how far south the outflow boundary pushed in Oklahoma and the decrease in deep-layer shear across southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas. Thus, severe thunderstorm watch #596 may be canceled early. ..Marsh.. 08/18/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product... ATTN...WFO...LZK...SGF...EAX...TSA...ICT...

    • MD 1785 CONCERNING SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH LIKELY FOR NORTHERN ILLINOIS...SOUTHERN WISCONSIN...SOUTHERN LAKE MICHIGAN...NORTHERN INDIANA...AND SOUTHWEST MICHIGAN Mesoscale Discussion 1785 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0544 AM CDT Sun Aug 18 2019 Areas affected...northern Illinois...southern Wisconsin...southern Lake Michigan...northern Indiana...and southwest Michigan Concerning...Severe potential...Watch likely Valid 181044Z - 181215Z Probability of Watch Issuance...80 percent SUMMARY...Organized cluster of thunderstorms continue east this morning across northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. A gradual increase in thunderstorm intensity through the morning should result in the need for a severe thunderstorm watch at some point this morning. DISCUSSION...Well-organized cluster of thunderstorms is moving east across southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois this morning. This activity is located to the southeast of a mesoscale convective vortex (MCV) located to the east of Minneapolis. Despite recent measured winds being below severe criteria, this cluster of storms is moving into an increasingly favorable thermodynamic environment, where most-unstable CAPE values are around 2500 J/kg. Deep-layer shear is being augmented by the circulation associated with the MCV and is between 35-45 knots. Further destabilization of the atmosphere is expected with the onset of diurnal heating, which should act to remove convective inhibition by mid morning. Thus, a gradual increase in thunderstorm intensity is expected through the morning, with an attendant increase in the threat for damaging thunderstorm winds and hail. Additionally, more isolated thunderstorms are developing farther east along the northern edge of the better low-level moisture. As the airmass further destabilizes, the severe potential of these thunderstorms should also increase. Therefore, the region will be monitored for a severe thunderstorm watch, which appears likely sometime this morning. ..Marsh/Edwards.. 08/18/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • 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...
