According to the NWS Nashville, Nashville hit 101° on Wednesday. This is the first time in 10 years (since July 8 2012) that the temp was 100° or higher, the 3rd longest stretch without 100° on record. The longest stretch was 13 years from Aug 13 1881 to Aug 13 1894.
A weak cold front has passed through the area, leaving us with a couple of nice and dry days. Temps and humidity will be lower both today and tomorrow. By Saturday, humidity begins to return, which also means a return to a chance (albeit slight) for an afternoon shower or storm. That rain rain chances increases a bit for Sunday and then increases to 50% by Sunday and Monday, as a cold front moves in. Behind that cold front, temps will cool off and humidity will drop back down to comfortable levels.

On This Day
1944 – Four tornadoes killed 153 persons and caused five million dollars damage in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Maryland. The tornadoes formed during the evening and moved southeast along parallel paths flattening everything in their way. The town of Shinnston, West Virginia was leveled, and was left with the majority of the casualities. Until that time it was believed that damaging tornadoes did not travel across mountainous terrain.
1974 – 1st extraterrestrial message sent from Earth into space.
The hurricane center is now monitoring a disturbance in the Atlantic. This is more similar to something we would expect in August, rather than June. We’ll see how it develops in the coming days!
I’ll be at Crab Orchard Elementary this morning to talk to the kiddos about weather and space!
