Look for me this evening at Friday at the Crossroads! I’ll be set up in front of Hurricane Cycles (across from the Depot). I’ll be at the United Fund booth, promoting the Bigfoot festival I’m organizing for October! To learn more about that festival, please find our Facebook page (@ucbigfoot) or check out our website at https://ucbigfoot.com/!

On This Day in Wx History
1998- Lightning strikes the 108-year-old St. Patrick Catholic Church on Second Avenue South in Nashville. The resulting fire significantly damages the roof and steeple.
1825 – A hurricane struck Long Island, New York, leveling trees and causing damage to ships. The early-season hurricane, which originated around Cuba, caused major damage along the Atlantic coast from Charleston, South Carolina to New York City. Many were lost at sea.

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes
High: 120° at Death Valley, California
Low: 28° at Albany, Wyoming
Today’s Tennessee Weather
What a beautiful way to end the week! After some morning fog takes its time moving out, especially for East Tennessee, we’ll see lots of sunshine and highs in the low to mid 80s across the state. Get outside if you can!
Tonight’s Tennessee Weather
With mild temperatures, clear skies, and calm winds, conditions will be favorable for patchy fog across the state tonight. Be careful if you’re out and about, as some of that fog may become quite dense.
Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather
After the morning fog burns off, the sun will shine bright! A few clouds in the afternoon may lead to a summer-like, isolated afternoon/evening shower or thundershowers, especially for those of you near our southern border.
The drought monitor is updated each Thursday.

During this week in 1965, astronaut Ed White became the first American to complete a spacewalk! Gemini IV launched with the objective to evaluate the effects of prolonged spaceflight, as well as to perform an EVA. Crew members Ed White and Jim McDivitt stayed in orbit for four days.
