More Storms on The Way

*Stormy Tuesday*
More storms will move into the Middle Tennessee area today. Expect temperatures to be even warmer today. By Thursday, we'll see lower and middle 90's for highs. Welcome to the sweltering days of June!

There is a slight risk, again, for severe storms according to the SPC.

Did you know there were 39 storm reports (of hail, high winds, flooding, and damage) from southern Middle Tennessee yesterday? Read more about them at the NWS-Nashville Storm Report Page.

**Weather History for This Date** 
June 16th

In 1966, an F1 tornado touches down in Trousdale County near Hartsville for a brief time. No one is injured.

In 2003, a heavy downpour of rain sends water into the Carter cave near Hitchings, KY. One caver perishes.

In 2005, the Goodyear blimp 'Stars and Stripes' crashes in Coral Springs, FL reducing the number of airships in the fleet to just two.
