A general fast was called on account of drought in Massachusetts. It was the year of the famous dry spring in which fields and villages burned. (David Ludlum) 

June 25, 1925 
The mercury hit 101 degrees at Portland, OR, their earliest 100 degree reading of record. (Sandra and TI Richard Sanders) 

June 25, 1953 
The temperature at Anchorage soared to 86 degrees, their hottest reading of record. (The Weather Channel)

June 25, 1987 
Afternoon highs of 97 degrees at Miami, FL, 107 degrees at Medford, OR, and 111 degrees at Redding CA were new records for the date. It was the third of six straight days of record heat for Miami. Thunderstorms produced wind gusts to 70 mph at Austin, and gusts to 75 mph at Tulsa OK. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

June 25, 1988 
Fifty-two cities in the central and eastern U.S. reported record high temperatures for the date. Highs of 100 degrees at Erie, PA, and 104 degrees at Cleveland OH established all- time records for those two locations. Highs of 101 degrees at Flint, MI, 105 degrees at Chicago, IL, and 106 degrees at Fort Wayne, IN, equaled all-time records. Thunderstorms in Idaho produced wind gusts to 100 mph west of Bliss and north of Crouch, injuring 29 persons. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

June 25, 1989 
Tropical depression Allison, the remnants of what was earlier Cosme (a hurricane over the Pacific Ocean which dissipated as it crossed northern Mexico), began to spread heavy rain into southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana. (The National Weather Summary) 

June 25, 2007

A strong shortwave and a very unstable, moist air mass combined to allow for an active weather day across the area with damaging downburst winds, large hail and a number of lightning strikes. In Fannin County, golf ball-sized hail in the southeast part of the county was large enough to crack windshields near Wilscot Mountain. In Forsyth County, construction workers took shelter from a storm in a house that was under construction. Unfortunately, one of these workers was killed when struck by lightning.

    • Good morning! I'm not going to waste any time today, we have a lot to talk about. The confidence of the track of Zeta has increased overnight and it now appears that we may take a significant hit from Zeta right here in north Georgia. The current track for Zeta crosses north Georgia very late Wednesday night into Thursday. As Zeta approaches the coast, it will begin to accelerate to the NE. Because of the relatively fast forward speed, Zeta won't be scrubbing off as much wind as we have seen with our past storms, and instead bringing those winds to north Georgia. Zeta rapidly accelerates and rockets from lower Alabama to Virginia in 12 hours.    Right now NWS Atlanta isn't saying much about the winds in the forecast discussion, but they have mentioned them briefly in the Hazardous Weather Outlook   As the HWO mentions, we are currently under a Flash Flood Watch for Wednesday through Thursday.     Rainfall amounts through 8 am Friday morning from the WPC look like this. Some people could see much higher totals. This looks to have a serious upslope component to it and those east facing ridgelines in the mountains could see higher totals.   But back to the winds.  The next three images show accumulated maximum wind gust, so this is basically a snapshot of the wind gust over time and follows the track of Zeta. The are 10 meter readings or approximately 33 feet, or the recommended "standard" height for anemometer siting.  These winds are significant and you can see that the models are bringing some hurricane force wind gust.    The next three images depict the winds at 925mb or right about 2500 feet. I know that I'm pretty close to that level and many in the mountains are there or above, so the next three images are significant for those people.      If these come to fruition, we are in for some serious wind damage across north Georgia. The soils are relatively wet and with the additional rain, there could be a significant impact on the trees, and I have a big concern about this. I can assure you that I will start securing all of our deck items today.  This storm could create more damage than Issac did a few years ago if things unfold like they are right now.  The ultimate track of Zeta will determine where those highest winds might pass. Right now I think it would be prudent to make preparations for a high wind event across the northern 1/3 of Georgia. As the day goes on we'll know more and more about Zeta, as we are in the timeframe where almost all computer models are in the range where they have very good accuracy since we're only about 48 hours away from those potential impacts. I'll make updates through the day so please check back. BTW, I got the little issues worked out here with images etc. when you come to this site now, it uses https instead of http, so everything is secure. Because of that fix, the app now allows you to login, or it should. Let me know if it doesn't.  EDIT: Just asked the NWS abut their current thoughts on the winds, this is what they are saying at the moment.  I hope everyone has a great Tuesday!
    • NAM looks like this right now, but it's at the end of its run. 
    • How does the wind gust potential look with Zeta? I know it's not going to be a very strong storm, but the forward speed looks impressive going from landfall to well past us in under 24 hours.
