for July 6 


July 6, 1893 
A violent tornado killed 71 persons on its forty-mile track across northwestern Iowa. Forty-nine persons were killed around Pomeroy, where eighty percent of the buildings were destroyed, with most leveled to the ground. Photos showed most of the town without a wall or tree left standing. (The Weather Channel) 

July 6, 1928 
A hailstorm at Potter, NE, produced a stone which was 5.5 inches in diameter, and seventeen inches in circumference, weighing a pound and a half. (David Ludlum) 

July 6, 1985 
Lightning struck a large transformer in Salt Lake County sending a 200 foot fireball into the air and blacking out almost the entire state for up to five hours. (The Weather Channel) 

July 6, 1986 
Thunderstorm rains during the mid morning hours, and again during the evening, produced major flash-flooding at Leavenworth, KS. The official rainfall total was 10.37 inches, but unofficial totals exceeded twelve inches. At nearby Kansas City, the rainfall total of 5.08 inches was a daily record for July. (Storm Data) 

July 6, 1987 
Thunderstorms produced severe weather in twenty-one states east of the Rockies, with severe weather reported in Kentucky and Indiana for the second day in a row. A thunderstorm produced more than five inches of rain in one hour near Reynolds, IL. Rochester, NY, was soaked with 3.25 inches, a record 24 hour total for the month of July. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

July 6, 1988 
Thirty-six cities in the north central and northeastern U.S. reported record high temperatures for the date. Afternoon highs of 98 degrees at International Falls, MN, and 101 degrees at Flint, MI, equalled all-time records. Highs of 96 degrees at Muskegon, MI, and 97 degrees at Buffalo, NY, were records for July. (The National Weather Summary) 

July 6, 1989 
Unseasonably hot weather prevailed in the southwestern U.S. Ten cities reported record high temperatures for the date, including Las Vegas, NV, with a reading of 115 degrees. Hanksville, UT, reached 112 degrees, Bullhead City, AZ, hit 120 degrees, and Death Valley, CA, soared to 126 degrees. (The National Weather Summary) 

July 6, 2005

Tropical Storm Cindy moved across much of north and central Georgia producing widespread damage from winds gusting to 60 to 70 mph along with hail up to 1 inch. Several tornadoes were spawned by Cindy, the strongest being an F-2 which occurred in Hampton in Henry County. The tornado touched down at the Atlanta Motor Speedway and traveled north northwest to just east of Lovejoy in Clayton County. At the Atlanta Motor Speedway alone an estimated $40 million in damages were caused by the tornado. In its path, this tornado damaged 229 homes, with 61 homes sustaining major damage. In total, Tropical Storm Cindy caused over $75 million in damages across north and central Georgia. (NWS Atlanta)

    • 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...
