A Break Coming/What is Cocorahs?

Well, just for the June 1st start of hurricane season, there is an area of low pressure in the northeastern Atlantic producing strong winds. However, it is a non-tropical system. According to the hurricane season, it has less than a 30% chance of developing into a "subtropical cyclone in less than 48 hour".

A trough over the western US will drop temperatures over the northern plains, Rockies and Great Lakes to northern New England...highs will be in the 50s and 60s there. Also, it will only reach the 60s along coastal California. Hot and steamy across the southeast with lots of 80s and 90s. Also warm in Washington and Oregon. There will be some storms over the Rockies and from Texas to Ohio.

Houston will be hot and sticky again on Tuesday, but there will be a very welcome dip in humidity early on Thursday. There is about a 30% chance for showers and thunderstorms late Wednesday into early Thursday but it looks like most of the action will be in Oklahoma. Back to hot and humid over the weekend.

Let's do collaborate or colaborar, pronounced coh-lah-bore-AHR. Do you like to colaborar? You can do just that while helping the world of science...check out the AND MORE section.

It was the collaboration of 2 bilingual educators, 1 linguist, 1 producer, 1 creative director, and 2 musical geniuses (and you know who you are) which led to the development of our Award Winning DVD, Let's Learn Frank & Paco, Volume 1.
