Overall, it is going to be a beautiful weekend for any Father’s Day activities you have planned. Sunday we will have mostly sunny skies for the morning with increasing clouds into the afternoon.  There is a slight chance for a PM Shower/Storm but a good portion, if not all, of the day will be dry. Expect a high around 85, with a low of 65.

Previously, the highest temperature ever recorded on Father’s Day was back on June 21, 1953 at 93 degrees. The lowest temperature was 40 degrees on June 18, 1950. The average temperature on Father’s Day falls around 75 degrees with a low near 60. In the past 95 Fathers Days, only 11 have experienced greater than a 50% chance for precipitation.

    I almost commented on the clouds yesterday too lois. They did look heavy and water laden.

    That’s characteristic of the appearance of the type of cloud you saw. But they are not so water laden as they appear, as proven by the lack of even any virga.

    Devin, Debby’s appearance on satellite is that of a somewhat disrupted system, with virtually all convection displaced to the east of the center. There has been no intensification in the core circulation. Drier air continues to be drawn in from the west, and the slow movement over the same waters has depleted some of the heat energy in those Gulf waters beneath this system. There is very little chance of any significant intensification before landfall, at which point it may drop back to depression status before reintensifying to some extent over the fresh supply of energy from the Gulf Stream in the Atlantic.

    Too bad a front can’t sweep in and draw some of Debby’s moisture up into WNY…

    11am NHC discussion on Debby’s slight weakening today:

    Now, that’s something you should work on, C….the re-distribution of moisture over land ….ROM.
    Breezy, chilly, sunny and was 56F this am.
