Hot and Stormy

More storms are possible today, especially this afternoon across middle Tennessee. Expect a high of just under 90° in the Highlands region. Storm chances increase for tonight and on Wednesday, a few of these thunderstorms could be severe with strong, damaging winds, and small hail.  Temperatures will back off from the 90's the last couple of days down into the lower to mid 80's for the rest of the week.

We continue to look at Lightning Safety. Remember, lightning is a serious danger and cannot be underestimated. To date, 5 people have been killed by lightning in 2011. The months of July and August are typically the most deadly. The average year shows us that 55 people are killed by lightning strikes. A couple of links with resources are available for you...the first is a 'What You Need To Know' and the second is 'Lightning Safety for you and your family'.
