MM’s Tues Wx Blog for June 15

MM News

I’m headed out to Stone Elementary this morning to talk to some summer school kiddos about the weather! I can’t wait to tell them all about the coolest science there is! 🙂

I’ve had a couple of cancellations, and that means there are some seats still available for this evening’s fire tornado class! Registration is required and that form can be found at

Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Concerns

Almanac for Yesterday


The tropics remain very active for this time of year! Tropical Storm Bill is packing winds of 50 mph, as it moves northeast and away from the U.S.

The system in the Gulf bears watching, as it will likely be our next named storm. It will impact the northern Gulf Coast of the U.S. Areas from Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle are watching this very closely. Regardless of where this makes landfall, and regardless of intensity, enormous areas of real-estate will likely see heavy rain from this system. The good news is that this system is not expected to become a hurricane.

Thankfully, the system nearest Africa is struggling and may never become a storm.

On This Day in Wx History

1952- The temperature at Nashville climbs to 100 degrees — the earliest date ever for a 100-degree reading in the Music City.

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  118° at both Death Valley & Stovepipe Wells, California

Low:   24° at Peter Sinks, Utah 

Twister Tuesday

The deadliest tornado in world history was the Daulatpur–Saturia tornado in Bangladesh on April 26, 1989, which killed approximately 1,300 people. In the history of Bangladesh at least 19 tornadoes have killed more than 100 people each, almost half of the total for the rest of the entire world. Poor housing and dense populations are mainly to blame.

Today’s Tennessee Weather 

It’s a picture-perfect June day across Tennessee! Lots of sunshine and low humidity levels will make for a very pleasant day. High temps will range from near 90 degrees in the west, to near 80 degrees in the east.

Tonight’s Tennessee Weather 

The sky will be clear and starry and accompanied by a beautiful Crescent Moon tonight! Temperatures will be quite comfortable for this time of year, leading some to even sleep with the windows open!

Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather 

On Wednesday, we’ll repeat what we did on Tuesday! Another absolutely beautiful day is in store for the region once again, with sunny skies, low humidity, and comfortable afternoon temperatures. Enjoy this while it lasts! Summer’s heat and humidity will be back sooner than later!

Drought Monitor

The drought monitor is updated each Thursday.

NASA Nerdology 

During this week in 1919, John “Jack” Alcock and Arthur Brown departed on the first nonstop flight across the Atlantic. They flew in a Vickers Vimy biplane from Canada to Ireland.

You all have a great day and keep lookin’ up!
