Today in Weather History
for August 14 

August 14, 1936 
Temperatures across much of eastern Kansas soared above 110 degrees. Kansas City MO hit an all-time record high of 113 degrees. It was one of sixteen consecutive days of 100 degree heat for Kansas City. During that summer there were a record 53 days of 100 degree heat, and during the three summer months Kansas City received just 1.12 inches of rain. (The Kansas City Weather Almanac) 

August 14, 1980
Severe thunderstorms produced a 71 MPH wind gust at the now former Columbus Weather Service Office (Muscogee County). In Baldwin County, a downburst from a thunderstorm severely damaged a storage building at the Grumman Aerospace Facility (now known as Triumph Aerostructures) just west of Milledgeville. (NWS Atlanta)

August 14, 1987 
Slow moving thunderstorms deluged northern and western suburbs of Chicago IL with torrential rains. O'Hare Airport reported 9.35 inches in 18 hours, easily exceeding the previous 24 hour record of 6.24 inches. Flooding over a five day period resulted in 221 million dollars damage. It was Chicago's worst flash flood event, particularly for northern and western sections of the city. Kennedy Expressway became a footpath for thousands of travelers to O'Hare Airport as roads were closed. The heavy rains swelled the Des Plaines River above flood stage, and many persons had to be rescued from stalled vehicles on flooded roads. (13th- 14th) (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) (The Weather Channel) 

August 14, 1988 
Eighteen cities in the northeastern U.S. reported record high temperatures for the date, and the water temperature at Lake Erie reached a record 80 degrees. Portland ME reported a record fourteen straight days of 80 degree weather. Milwaukee WI reported a record 34 days of 90 degree heat for the year. Afternoon and evening thunderstorms resulted in about fifty reports of severe weather in the northeastern U.S. One person was killed at Stockbridge MI when a tornado knocked a tree onto their camper. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

August 14, 1989 
Afternoon thunderstorms in Illinois soaked the town of Battendorf with 2.10 inches of rain in thirty minutes. Evening thunderstorms in Montana produced wind gusts to 66 mph at Hobson. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)

    • 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...
