Yesterday, I was at Allardt Elementary and the air conditioning was broken in the library where I ws to speak (it was very warm. ha). Then, soon after starting my talk, the main water line broke. That prompted the closing of the school and an abrupt end to my talk. haha
This morning, I’m headed to South Fentress to talk to a LOT of kiddos about weather and space. Wish me luck! ha

Hay Weather Forecast
The cold front that we’ve been tracking for several days (it’s slow!) has now slowed even more in the model data. Now, it may be the middle of next week before we get good rainfall from it. This isn’t uncommon behavior for summer fronts, but it can make long-range forecasting difficult. It’ll get here someday. haha

Almanac for Yesterday
Good news from the tropics this morning! The area of low pressure that we’ve been watching near the Caribbean has dissipated. The area of low pressure near Africa is not looking nearly as healthy as it looked yesterday, therefore the National hurricane Center has now lowered its chances for development.

Planting by the Moon in June

Today’s Tennessee Weather
A hot and humid day is in store for the Volunteer State today. That humidity may lead to a couple of afternoon and evening showers or storms across West Tennessee. Otherwise, look for mostly sunny skies and highs near 90 for many of us.
Tonight’s Tennessee Weather
A few passing clouds and a Full Moon will be in our Tennessee skies for tonight. It will be a mild and muggy night, with lows in the 60s and 70s.
Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather
Saturday is nearly a carbon copy of Friday’s weather. Another hot and humid day, with just a slight chance for an afternoon shower or storm across West Tennessee. The rest of us will see another dry and mostly sunny day.
The drought monitor is updated each Thursday.
Charlie Kurschek (@strmchasingchuck) snapped this picture of a lighting strike in Colorado at sunset. What a cool photo!
During this week in 1991, this photo of the SR-71 and its crew was taken. That crew was looking more like astronauts than aircraft pilots! Two SR-71 Blackbirds were loaned to NASA by the US Airforce for high-speed, high-altitude aeronautical research in the 1990s.
