Hot Weather Ahead...

After a bit of a break today, we're staring at highs in the lower and mid 90's for the next couple of days here on the Highland Rim in eastern Middle Tennessee. Of course, areas to our west will be even hotter. That being said, we do have a break in the heat coming!

*Our latest, local forecast*

Took a look at the Dallas/Ft. Worth Nat'l Weather Service office website this evening. Their expected high tomorrow is 106° with the heat index hitting 110°....oh my!

Looks like Tropical Storm Eduoard (guess Eddie was taken) will strike somewhere along the Mississippi, Lousiana, or Texas gulf coasts. Could strike all three. Here are a few links that I found interesting....

Wunderground Tropical site (always very cool)

Thanks to a Mark Rose post over at the Nat'l Weather Service's Nashville Weather Blog for this last tidbit of information......
I'm a bit of a weather history today's Middle Tennessee Weather Fact was kind of neat....Carthage measured 8.35" of rain on this date back in 1893....I'll guarantee you they had all sorts of flooding issues as the confluence of the Caney Fork and Cumberland Rivers run right the town.
