Watch Snowflakes Bloom [video]

In 1960, A Small Texas Town Experienced ‘Satan’s Storm’

According to alabamawx.com –

It was a typical June night in Kopperl. Skies were mostly clear. Some heat lightning was visible on the horizon. One clump of clouds rolled toward the town after midnight. The temperature was about 70F. Suddenly, a tremendous wind arose. It gusted to over 75 mph over a wide area. A store was unroofed. Trees were knocked over. The temperature shot up with an incredible momentum. In just a few minutes, it rose to over 100F.

Weatherman Admits ‘We Have No Clue’

Apparently, those living on the Gulf Coast need to be prepared for anything this weekend. Hurricane? Locusts? Zombies?

WWL.com is reporting –

A low pressure system in the Gulf of Mexico could be a hurricane by Saturday bringing ten inches of rain to Louisiana… or it could not develop at all… or it could go to Texas… or it could go to Florida.  Computer models are all over the map , and forecasters admit this one has them baffled. “It’s impossible to know yet what it is going to do,” Channel 4 Meteorologist Laura Buchtel said. “That’s why everybody just needs to watch it.” Buchtel says they hope to have better data after a Hurricane Hunter plane checks out the system this afternoon.
