Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Tuesday, August 8, 2017

Joe Nicholls

A weak upper level low pressure is over the Great Basin this morning and will be moving slowly eastward today and tomorrow. The air mass over us is moist, and becomes fairly unstable later this morning thru early evening, and again looking really unstable tomorrow afternoon with the lifted index coming in at -4! We'll begin the drying out process to the air mass Thursday through the weekend, but still a chance of a couple of thunderstorms each afternoon.

Joe is of the opinion that we will have a Low chance for thunderstorms from Noon to 4 pm; a Moderate chance from then until 8 pm and a Low chance from 8 to Midnight.

On this date in 1970, Janis Joplin bought a headstone for the grave of her greatest influence, Bessie Smith, at the Mont Lawn Cemetery in Philadelphia. Blues singer Smith died in 1937 after being refused admission to a whites only hospital. Ah-ha! I checked this out, it seems that Ms. Smith died at the G. T. Thomas Afro-American Hospital in Clarksdale, MS. Bessie was in an accident in a car driven by her lover Richard Morgan. Dr. Hugh Smith (a Memphis surgeon) came across the couple and attended to Ms. Smith. A truck driver (who had not seen the victims) called for two ambulances which were sent, one from the colored hospital (that is the period correct term) and one from the white hospital. But the Golden Hour had passed.
