NATIONAL SUMMARY                   
 
A batch of rain tracked across the Northeast yesterday, starting off 
the day over the mid-Atlantic, moving over southern New England by 
the early afternoon then moving offshore by the evening. This 
promoted predominantly dry weather across the Northeast for 
Independence Day firework displays. Showers and thunderstorms were 
scattered across the Southeast throughout the day, and unlike the 
rain in the Northeast, lingered over the region throughout the 
evening. Some of the thunderstorms produced damaging winds in the 
afternoon from Louisiana to southern Georgia with winds being strong 
enough to bring down trees. Stronger thunderstorms developed over the 
northern Plains in the afternoon, and while widely separated, 
produced large hail and wind gusts to 80 mph.
Showers and non-severe thunderstorms dotted the Four Corners and 
northern Nevada, typical for this time of year. The rest of the West 
stayed dry wither temperatures continuing to run 10 to 20 degrees 
above normal across the region's interior.
 
 
SPECIAL WEATHER                    
 
New Jersey Tornado From 2001       
-On this date in 2001, an F1 tornado struck Somers Point at 6:30 p.m. 
It had a non-continuous path of 2 miles in length and a width of 50 
yards. Winds were as high as 90 mph. These winds were strong enough 
to move a boat and move it 90 feet, damage roofs, blow a porch off a 
house and blow down between 3 and 4 dozen trees.
