Weather fun with 2s and 3s!

Weather fun with 2s and 3s!

In 2 days, our temperatures will jump around 20 degrees, and that means no 2-digit high temperature (triple-digit highs of 100 or above Thursday through Friday).  Hottest since last September 2nd, and 3rd.

The heat wave air we're going to get originates from Central Mexico (Mexico has the 2nd largest economy in Latin America, 2nd largest in ecosystems... the 3rd largest solar potential nation, and the nation with the 3rd largest police force).

I've been tracking Tropical Storm Debby moving only 2 mph hour to the east, now it's moving 3 mph to the east.  The storm is causing 3 major hazards: flooding, storm surge, and tornadoes.  The storm brought the 2nd highest rainfall total to Gainsville, FL on record. The storm will be near or over Florida for 2 more days (should be out to sea by Thursday morning).  The storm could bring some areas in Florida 20 inches or more of total rainfall.

Ok, I'm done, that's all my 2s and 3s for now.  Enjoy the lovely day today! 

Interesting facts from yesterday and weather trivia today from AP below...

   ON THIS DATE
   Cameron, LA residents went to bed on this date in 1957 thinking that Hurricane Audrey would not come ashore until late in the next day. During the night, the hurricane's central pressure dropped 35 mb, its winds increased to 145 mph and its forward movement increased from 6 mph to 15 mph. The storm hit earlier than expected, killing 390 people and causing another 192 to be missing.
