Hurricanes and Summer Vacations

Posted Jun 22nd - 3:52pm

I am planning a trip to Orlando in late summer. When does the hurricane season die down for FL?

What is the chance of being caught in a hurricane the last part of August or first part of September?

Thanks Anna

River Stages

Posted Jun 22nd - 2:51pm

Just a quick question about river stages. When you look up flood information and river flows, the data shows CFS and the current stage. What exactly is that saying? If it is currently at 2.5ft, is that an average depth of the river? Thanks for the help!

Is it possible to have thunder without lightning, and vice versa? Thanks, keep up the good work.

Hi there! I've been all over your website (and others, including Weather Underground) trying to figure out what the average humidity levels in Salt Lake City are. I would like to find a report that lists the highs, lows, and averages per month over the last several years. I am looking at purchasing a new cooling system for my home and I am wondering if an evaporative cooler or central air will be more effective. This information would be extremely beneficial. Thank you! Tara T.


Indeed, I can see why you are looking for this info for your investment! Finding past weather information for some reason, can be really difficult, even being in this field I still have a hard time gathering data for everyone!

Why, when there is a rainbow, is there typically only one? Following or during a rainstorm, why isn't the sky full of rainbows rather than just the one that we see?

I hope you understand the question. Last night we were driving home and our five-year old saw a rainbow and we wondered if the moisture and sunlight are just right to produce one rainbow, why doesn't it produce numerous rainbows?

Thanks! John P.

Hail Stones

Posted Jun 8th - 7:42am

Hi Dina, I was reading about hailstones in the Bible and wonder what size (diameter) a hailstone would be if it weighed about 75 lbs? The reference I am referring to is Revelations 16:21. I found out that a talent would weigh about 75.6 lbs. Any ideas how big these hailstones could be? Thanks, Carol Clegg


What an interesting question. The "talent" in this case is the hailstone. While most hailstones are not 75.6 pounds, that would be pretty wild. First let's look at some record sizes of hail, and then, we'll try to determine how big that one would be using some math.

I am looking for a resource that can tell me the average number of sunny days in a particular month in Utah. For instance, is there approximately the same number of sunny days in September as there are in May? Any help you can provide on this would be greatly appreciated.

What did I see in the sky?

Posted Jun 2nd - 3:06pm

Is there such thing as an atmospheric static discharge? While down in Southern Utah last year for a week long river expedition we witnessed on several nights what seemed to be lightning with no lightning bolt. Each night we prepared for rain but it never came. The 3rd night we noticed the same as the prior 2 nights but realized this time that there were no clouds around. I have spent many years in that area and have witnessed this before. This time however is the only time I have been down there during the summer months. I am trying to talk myself into believing it was a static discharge of some kind due to the heat.

Any help you can provide is appreciated.

What can you guys tell me about Mammatus Clouds, what conditions cause their formation, have we ever seen any in the SLC area?

Thanks and be well,

Snowfall Records

Posted Jun 2nd - 1:55pm

I was watching KSL weather last fall (or winter?) and Mark was talking about the 1-day record snowfall for Utah which was in either late '83 or early 84.

I remember he talked about it in terms of a 24 hour total snowfall because the record was over the course of two calendar days. I remember being shocked by how much the total amount was, but I can't remember how many feet it was. Do you have that information?

Thanks, Jon M.
