Rain Chances Again

**Rain Possible Again Today**
Storms chances continue for today as a frontal boundary lingers back to our northwest. See map features above.  Once this front decides to move, we should be more confident in the chances for rainfall. We had a trace of rainfall earlier this morning.

**Lightning Kills**
Another lightning death has occurred in the United States as a man was struck yesterday in Coral Springs, Florida.  He was mowing and was trying to 'squeeze in the rest of the work'. The story is available at the South Florida Sun Sentinel website.  His death makes the seventh for 2009 and the months of June through July are the highest annually for lightning fatalities. Lightning safety week comes up June 21st-June 27th and I'll have much more in the days leading up to it.

Weather History for This Date
In 1994, nearly 9" (estimated) of rain falls in Waynesboro, TN causing severe flash flooding. In 1989, a tornado passes over the Ben Franklin bridge in Philadelphia and doesn't even stop to pay the toll!
