Historic Weather and What Could Be Coming Next

The headlines and the news tell the story of what's been happening.

Destruction at Yellowstone National Park as heavy rains and rapid snow melt cause rivers to swallow up bridges and sweep away entire sections of roadway, forcing the evacuation of 10,000 visitors. Called the worst flooding in 30 years.

Tornado Alley is spreading east from states like Oklahoma and Kansas to states like Minnesota and Michigan with millions of more Americans now facing more severe storms.

National Weather Service says More than twenty states see record hot temperatures impacting nearly one hundred million Americans. Texas nears longest stretch of 100-degree days.

The city of Chicago hits one hundred degrees for first time in a decade.

The Padres felt that this week and also were there when a tornado siren went off at Wrigley Field for the first time in memory.

And then there are the headlines here about the drought worsening in California and more water cutbacks ahead.

All of this might make you wonder, what’s next?

With the new Jurassic Park movie filling up theaters this last week, some might be thinking all we need now are giant dinosaurs running loose across the country.

That’s pushing it of course. They’re extinct. But what’s happening with the weather, all combined lately….is pretty historic!
