MM’s Tues Wx Forecast for June 28

Wx Summary

Another pleasant day is in store for the plateau, with lots of sunshine and low humidity. The warmth and humidity we come to expect this time of year will begin returning on Wednesday, leading to a very slight risk for an afternoon storm. Humidity increases further on Thursday, leading to more isolated storm chances, especially in the afternoon. A slow-moving frontal boundary moving south will kick up still more showers and storms for Friday and into the holiday weekend. The weekend is not looking like a washout, but there will likely be scattered showers and storms across the plateau through that time period.

Drought Outlook

Drought info can be found at my link at That link also allows you to compare this week’s map with last week’s. The maps update each Thursday.

On This Day

1928- A severe weather outbreak produces five tornadoes across Middle Tennessee, beginning on the afternoon of the 28th, and continuing into the next morning. All tornadoes are classified as F2. One person is killed in Davidson County. Another 38 injuries are reported overall.

1919 –  Treaty of Versailles, ending WWI and establishing the League of Nations, is signed in France.


Hurricane Forecast

The tropics remain active, especially for this time of year. The yellow-shaded regions only have 20% chances for development, but that will still need to be watched very closely over the coming days.

The area that has been red-shaded for the last several days is now on the brink of becoming a tropical storm. That system will stay south of the U.S. but is now expected to become the season’s first hurricane.

  1. Hey Mark. Been meaning to mention this. You may already know about this from other subscribers. The WordPress form displays on on Gmail a little to much to the right. This cuts off some of the text on the right hand side. Just wondering if there is a setting for alignment in WordPress that might fix that. Thnaks
