A Very Hot Sunday

Expect middle 90's today across much of the Upper Cumberland region with upper 90's toward the Nashville area. This could be our hottest day of the year in Cookeville. I'll call it 95°. No chance for rain today under sunny skies.


Saturday's high was 92.5° marking the sixth day in a row of 90+ degree weather. The heat index or 'feels like' temperature hit 95°. We had no rainfall and this is the eighth straight dry day. When I mowed my yard on Saturday, I could hear the crunchy sound of dried up grass.

Low tonight will be 67° by Monday morning. We have a slight chance at a thunderstorm on Monday with the approach of a cool front. Temperatures behind the will be quite cool with the Monday night low of 61°. Some areas may even drop into the upper 50's. Tuesday's high will be just 82° and another night back around 60°. After that, the HEATWAVE intensifies with near 100° by the end of next week.

Here is the latest on Tropical Storm Debby. She is slowly moving to the north at 2 mph and is expected to turn west, which is good news for the Florida coast and bad news for the Louisiana and Texas coasts.
