It’s the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch!


Weather Headlines

–The remnants of Barry passing to our west will lead to scattered showers and storms through the week.

Main threats

No widespread hazardous weather is expected, though any storm that develops could produce torrential rainfall that could lead to localized flash flooding.


On the 7-day outlook above you notice I have Apollo 50th on two different days. Today is the anniversary of the launch, Saturday is the anniversary of the actual moon landing.

Every second, a large hurricane releases the energy of 10 atomic bombs. Every second!

This is why we chuckle when people suggest we bomb hurricanes to make them dissipate. It’d be like throwing firecrackers at a mountain and hoping it falls.


It was on this day in 1980 that Crossville officially recorded a high temperature of 101 degrees. This was the first time a triple digit temperature reading had ever been officially made for the city. This remains our record high for the month of July.

One year ago today

It was a warm morning, with a low of 70 degrees. The afternoon high would climb to 83, as a trace of rain was recorded.


I’m at the Marshall Space Flight Center this morning for the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch!!! They are supposed to set of 5,000 model rockets at the exact moment that Apollo 11 launched 50 years ago. This will break the Guinness Book of World Records for the number of model rockets launched at one time. What could possibly go wrong, right? haha

It’s going to be a busy and exciting day!

You all have a great one!
