Last night’s very active front has cleared the region but a renegade shower or storm are still possible today. Tomorrow begins a three-day streak of hot and dry weather, with dangerous heat indices by the afternoons. Be safe in the heat. Antoher frontal arrives Monday, bringing another chance for rain.
For those of you who follow me on Facebook, please note that I am currently in “Facebook jail.” (ha!) They have restricted my content because of a video I shared last year of a tornado. They say I didn’t give the videographer credit….except I did. Please be sure and “Follow” the blog from here to get updates sent to your email. On most phones you can set your notifications to alert you to an email as if it were a text message coming through. I also have the Android app that is free in the Playstore.

On This Day

1925 – John T. Scopes found guilty of teaching evolution in the “Scopes monkey trial” in Dayton, Tennessee, fined $100 and costs.

There’s no activity to report today, but an active season is still in the forecast!
The map below shows where we most often expect development to occur this time of year.
Starting in August, the MM newsletter will be published monthly, rather than weekly. The new format will be more in depth and focus heavily on the kids classes I teach and the weather of the plateau and Tennessee. There will be a new section that discusses the main weather headlines of the previous month. The new newsletter format is sure to be a hit!
Remember, subscriptions from those newsletters pay for for materials for the kids’ classes (Thank you!). Those subs are only $5 monthly or discounted to $50 per year (https://meteorologistmarkpro.com/). Donations are also gladly accepted at PayPal ( paypal.me/meteorologistmark) or P.O. Box 51, Clarkrange, TN, 38553.
