A frontal system has cleared through the area, leaving us with some clouds and sun today. There is the risk for an isolated shower or storm this afternoon, but skies should become partly cloudy overnight. the workweek starts off dry, but by Tuesday night we’ll see the risk for some showers and storms return. Those continue into Wednesday, with many of us seeing rain from that system. Thursday is looking drier and less humid.
An area of low pressure is expected to develop along the northern Gulf Coast (around Destin) this week and could develop into a tropical storm. At this time, that is not expected to impact us, but I’ll keep an eye on that.

HRRR Radar Model
This radar simulation runs from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. today. Most activity has pushed east of our area, but I still can’t rule out an isolated shower or storm this afternoon and evening.

Drought conditions continue to worsen across the state and here on the plateau.
On This Day
1961- Temperature at Crossville falls to 46, setting a low mark for July.
1040 – Lady Godiva rides naked on horseback through Coventry, according to legend, to force her husband, the Earl of Mercia, to lower taxes. (As a county commissioner, I can attest that this would definitely get the county commission’s attention! LOL)
An area of low pressure could develop into a tropical storm by Wednesday or Thursday in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Anyone with beach plans should monitor this closely.
