Weather happens around the World. We all know that. Each and every day there is an event that makes weather history. Whether it be a significant thunderstorm or an intense heat wave or cold snap. It doesn't matter what type of weather it is. If it's extreme enough, it can become infamous. Around the Country these weather events happen. Here's a list of some of the weather event that made history today:

Luckily for today, we're not expecting any major weather phenomena to occur that will make weather history in our area. Just some hot and humid conditions that will remain in the forecast until early next week thanks to a big Bermuda High Pressure system sitting overhead. This is allowing the warm and humid are to funnel in but also keeping us dry and sunny.
