Stay tuned for any changes to the yard sale forecast. At this time, it looks like a typical summer forecast. I’m not seeing any incredibly hot weather and I’m not seeing significant chances for rain. All in all, it’s looking like a good yard sale forecast! I’ll keep a close eye on it! Be sure and check back for updates each day.

On This Day in Wx History

1979 – A forty-minute hailstorm bombed Fort Collins, Colorado, with baseball to softball size hail. Two thousand homes and 2500 automobiles were damaged, and about 25 persons were injured, mainly when hit on the head by the huge stones. A three month old baby died later of injuries.

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  117° at both Death Valley & Ocotillo Wells, California

Low:   35° at Estcourt Station, Maine 

Past 24-Hour Earthquake Activity (New!)

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 

It’s another hot and humid day across the state, with a few afternoon and evening showers and storms possible. Storm chances are lowest across West Tennessee. Those lower rain chances will allow them to heat up into the mid to upper 90s. The rest of the state will see high temps around 90.

Tonight’s Tennessee Weather 

A few showers and storms may linger into the overnight hours for southern and western portions of the state. Otherwise, look for partly cloudy skies and warm overnight low temps.

Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather 

Thunderstorms will be isolated on Saturday. Many of us will stay hot and dry. Afternoon high temps in the 90s are expected for everyone except the plateau and upper East Tennessee, where highs will stay in the 80s. Overnight storms are expected to move in from the northwest and some of those could be strong.

Drought Monitor

The drought monitor is updated each Thursday.

Weather SnapShots

Parts of New Jersey and Pennsylvania saw weather that they don’t normally see yesterday! Several destructive tornadoes touched down there, including this one that showed a very impressive radar signature! Thanks to

NASA Nerdology 

This week in 1971, NASA put a car on the Moon! As a part of the Apollo J missions, Apollo 15 was focused on greater mobility on the lunar surface. The crew took a Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) which was designed to operate in the low-gravity vacuums. Someday, when astronauts return to the Moon, they will still be able to drive this vehicle.

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