Tuesday Add On, Viewer Qoutes "Biblical Verse"


Here is the verse in the bible regarding the red sky.

King James Version
Matthew 15.

The Book of Matthew
Return to Index
Henry's Commentary

Chapter 16
1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.
sign Matt 12:38, Mark 8:11, Luke 11:16, John 2:18, 1st Cor 1:22

2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.

3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

Thunder to Announce Heat Wave

First things first, I am not expecting a long and unbearably hot summer. I say this because the spring’s wetness should allow for plenty of afternoon clouds and thundershowers to form in June and July. Don’t get me wrong, there will be hot and humid spells this summer. But compared to last year, the summer will be rather temperate.

More on last summer comes later in this blog. For now, I want to focus on the mid week thunder pattern that will be rather typical this summer.

This afternoon’s highs have managed 80-85 with humidity levels a tad sticky. As evening unfolds and the sun sinks on the west horizon, it will feel delightful for joggers through the Little Creek Park in South Charleston and Millbrook Park in New Boston. In fact, predawn, temperatures will settle back into the upper 50s in many rural areas.

But things will change quickly on Tuesday when we awaken to a red sky in morning. The old mariner’s adage (which I am told has biblical connotations) says sailor take warning after a red sky start. And on Tuesday, a tropical warm front will be crossing the region with an influx of high octane humidity. That will mean thunderstorms will be prowling the region in the afternoon and evening, especially points north.

The thunder pattern may last into Wednesday, then a southerly flow of genuinely hot and humid air will arrive by Thursday and last through the weekend into next week. Highs will routinely reach 90 in that stretch with a 95 perhaps in the cards. Great pool weather for sure.

By the way, if you use 90 degrees as the best gauge for pool days, we had more than 90 last year with the first on May day (May 1) and the last coming after Columbus Day in the fall!
