Storm Damage Reports across Tennessee

Looks like the severe storm chances will be from Cookeville eastward today. Many reports of storm damage across Middle Tennessee yesterday. Storm reports list here

Expect temperatures for Thursday and Friday to be in the lower to mid 90's here in Cookevill and even hotter to our west.  Nashville will hit 96° while other cities to their southwest will be even hotter. I would not be surprised to see a few places in southern Middle TN to approach 100°. We'll cool down to the upper 80's for the weekend.

June 17th
On this day in 2001, a weak tornado touches down in Newry, Maine exactly where another tornado hit a year earlier.

On this day in 2000, lightning strikes a home in Shop Springs, TN. The ensuing fire destroys a workshop and part of the home.

On this day in 1938, my grandparents were married.  They made it 69 years together and were a great example to me and my family.
