The remnants of Tropical Storm Bonnie will push rain across eastern
Pennsylvania overnight. At the same time, a weak cold front will
push a few showers or thunderstorms into western Pennsylvania. It
will be a mild night, with lows ranging from the upper 50s in the
Laurel Highlands to the upper 60s in far southeastern Pennsylvania.

The steadier rain from the remnants of Bonnie should exit eastern
Pennsylvania early Monday. However, a pop up shower or thunderstorm
remains possible Monday afternoon across central and eastern
Pennsylvania as the cold front crosses the area. Highs on Memorial

Historical Weather And Climate Facts For Today

//////////////////////////
MAY 30TH...HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1879...
A major outbreak of severe weather occurred in Kansas and western Missouri.
In Kansas, tornadoes killed eighteen persons at Delphos, and thirty persons
at Irving. Two tornadoes struck the town of Irving within a few minutes
time virtually wiping the small Kansas community off the map. The second
tornado was perhaps two miles wide, and exhibited multiple vortices. (David
Ludlum) (The Weather Channel)
...1948...
A railroad bed acting as a dam gave way during a flood along the Columbia
River destroying the town of Vanport OR. The nearly 19,000 residents
escaped with little more than the clothes on their backs. (David Ludlum)
Twenty carloads of glass were needed in Denver CO to replace that destroyed
by a severe hailstorm. (The Weather Channel)
...1961...
A thunderstorm in Buffalo Gap, Saskatchewan, dropped over 10 inches of rain 
in less than an hour, breaking a long drought. (NWS Louisville)
...1983...
Unusually high temperatures throughout the western United States caused great 
runoff from snow pack in the Rocky Mountains.  This caused flooding which washed 
out bridges and caused mudslides in Nevada.
...1985...
The temperature in Oklahoma City reached a sizzling 104 degrees, making it the 
highest ever for so early in the season.  Also, this marked the first time the 
temperature had reached the 100 degree mark in the month of May for the city.
...1986...
Hanford, Washington hit a scorching 104 degrees, breaking the all-time record 
high temperature for May for eastern Washington.  Yakima, Washington hit 102 
degrees, a record high for the month of May for Yakima.  Record heat also 
continued across the northern 1/2 of the country with records falling in 
Baltimore, Boise, Duluth, Marquette and Reno.  Newark, New Jersey had its 4th 
day in a row over 90 degrees, making this a record breaking May heat wave for 
Newark.  The previous record  heat wave was from May 28-30, 1931.
...1991...
3 thunderstorms produced 5.65 inches of rain in a 3 hour period across New 
Marlboro and Sheffield, Massachusetts resulting in severe flooding.  Many roads 
and several bridges were washed out eventually isolating the 2 towns.  About 89 
miles of road were damaged.  Typical washouts ranged up to 8 feet deep and roads 
that were 25 feet wide were reduced to only 10 feet.  Power outages were 
widespread and a state of emergency was declared.  The flooding was the worst 
since 1955 for the area and total damage was estimated near 10 million dollars.
...1998...
Most of the town of Spencer, South Dakota was destroyed by an F4 tornado.  6 
people were killed, 150 were injured, and total damage was $18 million.
...2004...
A large tornado outbreak struck the Ohio Valley, including an F3 twister 
that damaged 80 percent of Marengo, Indiana and resulted in one fatality.
