|There are chances of severe storms in parts|
of the Northeast today. Let's hope they're not as bad
as the ones in the video you'll see in this post.
This will spell the beginning of the end of a remarkable hot spell.
Today will be the 11th day in a row of temperatures above 80 degrees in Burlington, Vermont. Really odd for this time of year.
This kind of hot, humid weather can be an ingredient for strong storms.
Already, there was a severe warned storm last night in central New Hampshire.
I'm sure today there will be a few damaging wind gusts and torrential downpours as a cold front starts pushing into the expected 90 degree heat and high humidity today.
In the spirit of the storm forecast, I give you two severe storm videos. I definitely hope they aren't as bad as in the two videos you'll see below.
The first goes back to Naples, Italy. You might remember I showed you baseball sized hail pelting fisherman just off the coast.
This compilation video shows you more of the storm. It's scariest in the beginning, as somebody takes a video inside a car as the hail demolishes the vehicle:
The next video is security camera footage of a microburst in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on September 3.
Notice how fast the chaise lounges and even the slushy machine get swept off the deck. Glad I wasn't there for that:
