Rain Chances Increase With Heat

As we got into this upcoming work week, expect temperatures to continue to be hot with an increasing chance for rain. The rain will be of the garden-variety summertime storms. Some of these storms could be strong with heavy rain, strong lightning, and occasional hail. Look for highs the 90's each day this week.

Highs on both Saturday and Sunday were 93° and the heat index (or feels like) hit 105° yesterday in Cookeville. Two deaths appear to be heat-related at Bonnaroo and CMT Music Festivals in and around Nashville. As hot as it has been, temperatures in June (thus far) are averaging just 2° above normal and some 6° below the record set in 1925.
