Thank You Isaac! 112 In South Dakota, 108 Nebraska!

August 31st, 2012 at 4:34 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

Historic heat wave continues to grip areas from Montana to Iowa to Nebraska, the Dakotas & Colorado.  It will bring 100 to the Northeast this weekend.

If not for Isaac 100 would be here & if we had dry soils, 105.  The heat has been absolutely incredibly to our northwest with 112 at Winner, South Dakota.  Even Denver set an all-time late-season record of 97, as did Valentine, Nebraska at 108!

Isaac clouds & showers/t’storms & circulation will keep the heat wave at bay & a cold front will cut the heat wave in the Plains, Great Lakes & Northeast by early- to mid-next week.

    Thankful to Isaac for many things! Many states are getting much needed rainfall! We hit 89* before the clouds moved in today. I watched them come in, even though the sun was out bright overhead I saw the band moving in from the southwest. Fun to watch!

    Is the weather channel completely wrong, or just slow to update? They still have us clearly in a 4-6″ band of rain. I trust you Chad, just surprised by the big difference in expected rainfall totals.
