OF THE CHILDREN. jJA1:o
Washington, August P.i!'.'i.
Storm wave ot miileiate force, e
pected to cross continent luring week
centering on August 11. will be ex-
pected to cause hot and dry weather
generally over the continent, tin last
of a period of above normal tem-
peratures "X pected to extend from 5
to PI, inclusive. A short periou of
hi'.rh temperatures will be expected to
■ over continent during passage of,
moderate storm wavi centering -m
is, but, as this storm wave will be
preceeded and followed by cool waves, ]
and precipitation will be on the in-
crease during and following storm'
center, no material crop damage will
lie expected after passage of storm
wave of 11 excepting probable hail and j
frost damage in northern fields. After
storm wave centering on 11 has pass
ed, general cropweather will be ex-
pected to improve and those crops
that have come thru the heat of pre- ]
ceding six weeks will be expected to
improve their condition, excepting in
the real d outh area; in the drouth
area, dry weather with winds that
will probably sap the remaining moi.-
turc and plant strength will be ex-
pected to follow storm wave of 11.
One of the difficult problems of
cropweather forecasting is now being
illustrated just south of the Ozark
mountains; these mountains are not
very high, but are proving themselv-
1 of sufficient height to keep a poc-
ket of hot. stagnant air just south
of them while the balance of contin-
ent cools off from the influence of
cool wave forecasted for last days of
Inly and first days of August. This
area, including Oklahoma Arkaiisa-,
northeast Texas and n rtnern Louis-
iana, w-as expected to experience de-
creasing precipitation May I9H0 to
end of season, but not the sevc-i
drouth that has really held forth. To
relieve this situation, storm fum
must be sufficient to bring down the
cooler air from upper strata in rth
of the Ozarks and lift the heated
stagnant air that is till keeping tem-
peratures well above 1 <10 degrees •iu.--
ng the day. otorin force during las.
week of July was expected to accom-
plish this result, but I "ce 110 period
