MM’s Fri Wx Blog for June 18

Friday Funny

I’ve seen this shared so many times on social media this week. It’s in reference to hurricane season. 🙂

May be an image of one or more people and text that says 'Storm season is beginning. If a news van pulls into your driveway remember: teeth and bras people. Teeth and bras.'

MM News

I had a wonderful visit to Allardt Elementary yesterday morning to talk weather and some space to the summer camp kiddos. They had some great questions and were a very good audience! I told them to invite me back anytime!

Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Concerns

Some strong thunderstorms are possible Monday and Tuesday, as a cold front moves through the area. Widespread severe weather is not expected, but any storm that develops could pack a punch.

More strong storms are possible the end of next week. Those will be associated with an unsettled pattern that is expected to develop. I’ll keep a close eye on that.

Almanac for Yesterday


This map shows the projected rainfall for the tropical system in the Gulf. It has yet to earn a name, but it certainly could at any moment. This is expected to be a tropical storm at landfall on the Louisiana coastline. That landfall will occur late tonight. The effects of the system will be felt along and to the east of the path. Those effects are expected to stay south of the plateau.

On This Day in Wx History

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  128° at Death Valley, California

Low:   25° at Stanley, Idaho 

Today’s Tennessee Weather 

It’s a hot and humid day across our beautiful state! At least we will see lots of sunshine, with just a passing cloud or two. It’s a great day to hit the pool! High temps will hover around the 90-degree mark statewide.

Tonight’s Tennessee Weather 

With just a few clouds passing by, it will be a warm and humid night. Overnight low temps will be around 70 for many of us, with lower 60s for upper East Tennessee.

Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather 

After several dry and sunny days, a chance for a shower or thunderstorm reenters the forecast just in time for the weekend. Saturday is not a washout, by any means, but everyone has a slight chance of seeing a mainly afternoon shower or storm. If you have outdoor plans, just keep an eye on the sky and the radar. Otherwise, be prepared for hot and humid conditions.

Drought Monitor

The drought monitor is updated each Thursday.

Weather SnapShots

I had some time yesterday between speaking at Allardt Elementary and training for my new job in Jamestown, so I headed up to Alvin C York for a few minutes. The weather was perfect for it!

NASA Nerdology 

NASA first partnered with Peanuts creator Charles Schulz in 1967 to promote Space Flight Awareness, and Snoopy has stayed the mascot for space flight safety ever since!

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