Saturday night marks the 100-year anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, but not a repeat of the clear, calm and frigid weather experienced that fateful night.
Two cruise ships are currently en route to the site of the tragedy, where memorial services will be held Saturday night to pay tribute to the lives lost.
During those services, the weather may make it difficult for passengers to fully envision what it was like during those last hours on board the Titanic.
The Titanic plunged into the icy waters of the northern Atlantic amid clear, calm and frigid weather during the early morning hours of April 15, 1912.
The wind Saturday night will be far from calm. Instead, brisk winds will have many passengers bundling up for the memorial services.
Some clouds will also stream overhead Saturday night, preventing passengers from viewing the star-studded sky that likely dazzled those aboard the Titanic.
The clouds will precede an approaching storm system and its brief showers, which should remain off to the west of where the Titanic sunk through Saturday night.
Even without the showers, the memorial services are sure to be somber events as passengers think back to the night where 1,514 people lost their lives.
Repeating and slow-moving storms will raise the risk of flash flooding and damaging winds over the northern and central High Plains into Thursday night.
Thunderstorms will bring the risk of severe weather to a portion of the mid-Atlantic states into Thursday night.
As July draws to a close, a storm system swinging up from the Deep South will bring downpours to the northeastern U.S. and break the back of an extended heat wave.
Rounds of showers and thunderstorms moving westward off the coast of Africa may pave the way for future tropical systems over the Atlantic Ocean in the weeks ahead.
Highs will run between 10 and 15 degrees Fahrenheit above average across much of the interior western United States into the upcoming weekend.
A budding tropical system threatens to bring flooding rain to the Philippines into this weekend with potential future impacts on China and Taiwan.
