Father's Day Forecast

Look for morning storms for your Father's Day 2011. Once those push through, I expect we'll see a nice day with highs reaching the middle 80's by this afternoon across much of middle Tennessee. Be careful, however, during the storms are they will be accompanied by frequent lightning strikes, possible hail, and heavy rains.

Speaking of lightning, this is Lightning Safety Week across America. To date, five people have been tragically killed by lightning. Details on the fatalities are located here. The latest lightning fatality is Gary DeVries from Montana. Gary was a rancher, had a host of family and friends along with a great story. His obit can be found here.
