Threats

The greatest threat facing our region this week is heat and humidity. Both of those will be increasing by Wednesday. Just be safe in that heat and stay hydrated and stay in the shade.

As we get to Thursday, afternoon/evening storm chances increase. Any storm that develops could be intense, with deadly cloud-to-ground lightning, heavy rainfall, and gusty winds that could produce locally severe wind gusts.

Baldwin’s Severe Weather Concern

Widespread severe weather is not expected over the next seven days.

Daily Forecast

Today: Sunny and pleasant. Low humidity will make it feel quite nice.

Wednesday: Humidity begins returning. Be safe in the heat.

Thursday – Monday: Hot and humid, with scattered afternoon/evening showers and storms each day. The scattered storm activity should keep us from getting as hot as we otherwise would.

Baldwin’s Hay Day Forecast

The next three days are looking good! Afterwards, rain chances begin increasing by the end of the week and into the weekend. There are indications that next week will be a wetter one.

Records

On this day in 1998 a widespread severe weather outbreak strikes Middle Tennessee. There were over 70 reports of large hail! Damaging winds, along with two tornadoes, were also reported. One of the tornadoes tracked for 11 miles across Pickett and Fentress Counties – the first tornado on record to occur in July in either county. Another tornado is captured on video by numerous residents as it moves through the Double Springs area just west of Cookeville. Hail up to the size of apples falls across Cookeville.

Long Range Outlook 

A very warm and wet pattern appears to be evolving for next week.

Weather Shot

This was one of many pictures of the clouds along the Panhandle of Florida Sunday, as storms rolled in off the ocean. This is called a shelf cloud and marks the edge of a line of storms. Oftentimes, these storms contain very gusty/possibly damaging winds. They are quite the sight to see rolling in!

NASA Nerdology

Check out this one minute video released by NASA about the rover about to launch this month to Mars. Pretty cool stuff! You may want to share this with the kids!

You all have a great day!
