A hot and dry pattern has settled into the area for the next few days. Be safe in the afternoon heat. This hot streak is rather short-lived, with another frontal system bringing the chance for scattered showers and storms by the beginning of the week.
I had to create a new Facebook page. You may follow/friend me at https://www.facebook.com/1meteorologistmark/.
As always, be sure and “follow” this blog to get updates sent ot your email inbox. Thank you.

On This Day
1995- Six people attending an outdoor carnival in Murfreesboro are injured when lightning strikes a nearby power pole. A large tree is destroyed by a separate lightning strike.
1793 – Alexander Mackenzie reaches the Pacific Ocean, becoming the first Euro-American to complete a transcontinental crossing of Canada.
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.
