More Heat and More Storms Possible

Remember, this is Lightning Safety Week.

*Local Weather Notes*
Temperatures will rise to around 90° once again today. Storm chances increase to 40%. We have a stationary front right on top of us. Showers and storms will ride along this front during the afternoon and evening hours. Expect this front to move a little west for tomorrow. No relief, yet, in the 7-day forecast (below) with the heat.

Weather History for This Date
On this date in 1988, Nashville welcomes the start of summer with a 100-degree high. Temperatures would reach 100° or higher for the next 5 days.

On this date in 1972, Remnants of Hurricane Agnes dump up to 20" of rain on parts of Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New York. This causes tremendous flooding.

Fun Weather Site of The Day
One of my favorite weather websites is the blog run by Anthony Watts. He calls it 'Watts Up With That' and chronicles life, science, weather, climate change, and news. Take a look today at the FWSOTD.
