More Hot Weather Ahead

Temperatures are expected to reach in the 90's once again. We've been at 85° or higher every single day in July with the exception of the July 1st. The Storm Prediction Center does have us under a slight chance for strong storms within a 25 mile radius of any given location in Middle Tennessee. Most of our area is under either a SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT, HEAT ADVISORY, OR EXCESSIVE HEAT WATCH for today. Here in Putnam County, you can view the HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK.

The hottest of our temperatures is expected to arrive by Friday where many locations could see middle and upper 90's with 100° readings possible in the cities like Nashville, Clarksville, Jackson, and Memphis.

The latest storm spotter training class has been announced. It will be on August 12th (9:30 am CDT) at the TTU Nursing Building Auditorium on the campus of Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville.
