Quiet Weather Returns to US, Atlantic

After a week of severe weather, heat waves, tropical storms, and hurricanes, the weather for this last full week of August looks to be rather tame.  Hurricane Bill passed through the western Atlantic, brushing Bermuda and Cape Cod with tropical storm-force winds before more directly affecting Nova Scotia.

Temperatures have cooled across the eastern US.  There will be a brief warm spell early this week before cooling off to more typical late-summer temps.

At this time, no severe weather is expected across the country this week.  Thunderstorms will affect the central plains into the Midwest during this week bringing some rain to the area.  The precipitation forecast for the week from the HPC shows as much:

5-day precipitation forecast from Monday morning through Friday Morning

Given the quiet weather anticipated for this week, we’ll take a look back at Hurricane Bill, some of the tornadoes in the Midwest, as well as our long-range forecast for Syracuse, NY.  As always, if you have any unique weather events in your area or read of any such events, let us know in the comments.
