MM’s Wed Wx Blog for July 28

MM News

Yesterday evening’s MM Kid’s class went so very well! We learned all about floods and then we build a home and made it flood proof! The kids turned into very smart engineers. We discovered that a mix of playdough and gravel, along with some other random items (ha) can make for a great flood wall! We’ll definitely be doing this lesson again! We had so much fun we forto to taek any pcitures!

Next month’s lesson, as voted on by the kids, will be on lightning. Stay tuned for more info on that!

On This Day in Wx History

1819 – A small but intense hurricane passed over Bay Saint Louis, Mississippi. The hurricane was considered the worst in 50 years. Few houses were left standing either at Bay Saint Louis or at Pass Christian, and much of the Mississippi coast was desolate following the storm. A U.S. cutter was lost along with its 39 crew members. The storm struck the same area that was hit 150 years later by Hurricane Camille. 

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

Past 24-Hour Earthquake Activity 

The size of the dot indicates the magnitude of the quake. Larger dots equal bigger quakes. If the dot is red, that means it happened more recently. Orange dots represent quakes that occurred several hours ago.

Today’s Tennessee Weather 

After some patchy morning fog in some areas, skies will become mostly sunny for our Wednesday. All that sunshine will help warm us all up into the low to mid 90s. High humidity levels will make it feel much hotter. Be safe in the heat!

Tonight’s Tennessee Weather 

Under starry skies, overnight lows will range from the mid 70s across the western end of the state, to the mid 60s in the easternmost regions.

Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather 

Thursday will likely be the hottest day Tennessee has seen this summer. With abundant sunshine, afternoon high temperatures will climb to near 100 degrees for areas of West and Middle Tennessee. Elsewhere, low to mid 90s are expected. High humidity levels will lead to dangerous heat indices. Please be safe in the heat.

Drought Monitor

The drought monitor is updated each Thursday.
