The weather, currently.

Plenty of sunshine to begin the work week

It was a Top 10 June day earlier and we're going to have a couple of more beautiful days to start the work week. This evening open up those windows with comfortable sleeping weather and tomorrow temperatures get into the upper 70s with lots of sunshine. It will also be warm on Tuesday and a little breezy with temperatures 75°F to 80°F. A wet weather system approaches on Wednesday with a strong likelihood of some showers and maybe even a couple of thunderstorms. Improving weather should return for later Thursday or definitely by Friday. We are now just a week away from the earliest sunrises of the year. You may notice light on the Eastern horizon before 4:00 a.m.

What you need to know, currently.

Currently’s Rebecca McCarthy wrote a piece last week on the man who began naming hurricanes after people,

“In 1902, a man named Clement Wragge aimed a cannon at the sky in Queensland, Australia and hoped for rain. Wragge was a visionary freak among meteorologists — orphaned at the age of five, he was trained in cosmology and meteorology by his grandmother and would later become quite interested in spiritualism. By most accounts, he was a foul-mouthed, short-tempered man, with a turbulent personal life and an unlikely relationship with Brigham Young, but today he’s generally regarded as one of the more influential figures in weather forecasting.”
