Super Weekend Forecast

Slight storm chances today with more possible on Sunday, but temps and overall weather will be fantastic. Expect mid 80's today and slightly warmer temperatures on Sunday. First of next week is looking to be hot once again.

We've just wrapped up the 2011 week about Lightning Safety. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors. To date, six people have lost their lives due to lightning. It is extremely powerful and debilitating and hundreds of people are permanently injured each year. Did you know that an average of 55 people each year in the United States are reported killed by lightning? *LIGHTNING SAFETY WEBSITE* (I'll be following up this post with another about the power of lightning with pictures of a recent lightning strike in Cookeville, TN)
