Weather Forecasts tor August.
Rev. Irl R. Hicks in his month
ly weather forecasts for August,
has the first storm period due
from the 4th to the 8th, with its
center on the 0th. Falling- ba
rometer, increased humidity and
warm, with growing- cloudiness
will appear as :early as the 4th.
Storms and thunder gusts will
quickly follow in western sec
tions and during the 5th to 7th
these disturbances will pass east
ward over the country. Rising
barometer and cooler weather
will follow about 7th to 10th.
A reactionary storm period is
central on the 11th to 12. The
indications are for only moderate
barometic and other changes at
this time. Threatening clouds
with thunder gusts may show
themselyes over scatterred locali
ties, but generally the weather
will remain warm and dry.
The third storm period is cen
tral on the 17th» reaching from
the 15th to the 20th. Storms will
be forming in the western region
as early as 14th and:. 15th and
during the 16th to 19th very gen
eral and forcible storms will pass
eastward over the country.
Thunder and lightning will mark
these storms with great (empha
sis. decidedly
and cliange to cooler will follow.
The /next reactionary s]:orm
period i&v.centraJ',von the 22dj 23d
and 24th, There -will be high
temperature, low barometer and
vicious electrical storms during
the early stages of the period,
but sudden changes to high ba
rometer and much cooler will
press the western side of the
storm area. There is danger
that these very sudden revulsions
to cooler late in August will be
followed by frosts in northern ex
tremes. 1
The last storm period is cen
tral on the 29th covering the 27th
to the 31st.J- 'As early as the 27th
and 28th barometic warnings of
gathering storms will be noted,
and the crisis of the period will
not be over forty-eight hours
from 6 p. m. on the 30th. Storms
of rain, hail and thunder, attend
ed by violent, tornadic gales will
pass over wide areas of the inter
ior parts of the country. The
storms of this period will con
