Thatís very interesting data, but I canít figure out why Huntsville is so much worse than Chattanooga on paper. They should be very similar.

Also, that Knoxville was actually ever so slightly worse than Chatty (85.0 vs 84.8 ). Chattanooga, for the most part, always runs a degree or three hotter than Knoxville.  Could Knoxville have slightly higher dewpoints/humidity in conjunction with the nearby forested mountains?

I also wonder if fog or cloud cover is more common here. Maybe that gets factored in somehow.

Dear Atlanta (aka "HOT-lanta),

Please change your nickname- those much further up the list scoff at your level of suffering...

Also- two quick PSAs- don't ever, ever, ever move to Texas- even if you get a 7 figure job offer, the heat will just kill you and please remember that a "dry" heat is actually really awful if it's 114 in the full sun (that time I went to Vegas in July). 


http://www.bertsperling.com/2013/07/02/sizzling-cities-ranked-our-new-heat-index/


Also, Tennessee and nearby metro areas that are NOT in the Top 50 largest in the U.S.:

Little Rock-North Little Rock-Conway, AR699,75789.6
Jonesboro, AR121,02689.1
Jackson, TN115,42587.9
Huntsville, AL417,59387.6
Decatur, AL153,82987.5
Clarksville, TN-KY273,94987.0
Dalton, GA142,22786.8
Knoxville, TN698,03085.0
Chattanooga, TN-GA528,14384.8
Cleveland, TN115,78884.6
Morristown, TN136,60883.8
Kingsport-Bristol-Bristol, TN-VA309,54482.7
Johnson City, TN198,71682.5
Asheville, NC424,85880.3
Blacksburg-Christiansburg-Radford, VA162,95878.7

Little Rock should at least crack the top ten. Itís usually warmer than Memphis. Itís all time high at 114 is higher than Dallas.

Seeing some hints on Twitter that long range Euro is starting to show quite the heat dome over our area. Please be wrong.  ::hot::

I would guess that topography is likely in the Knoxville/Chattanooga comparison.  With regard to Huntsville, Huntsville is just plain hotter- it's both further south and west (higher average dewpoint and temperature).

Little Rock is warmer than Memphis- it's got an 89.6 average compared to Memphis's 89.3.  The ranking was only for the Top 50 metro areas (of which, Little Rock is not).  If Little Rock were a Top 50 metro, it would be ranked just ahead of Memphis at #13.  However, it would likely be much higher since a much more significant UHI would come into play if Little Rock were in the Top 50- likely adding at least a degree or two - perhaps even edging out Tampa for #10.  Personally, I'd still prefer Little Rock over some of the Florida cities simply due to the duration of their warm temperatures.

This won't likely materialize- we wasted all the heat early.  These models keep showing the flip back to hot and it's always 7 to 10 days away.  We've seen this play out many a time before and we all know how the story goes.  Perhaps if we're lucky, the pattern will reload and we'll get another chance at the heat by the end of July or early August.  Meanwhile, we'll just have to sit and endure the big  ::cold::

Put on my big snow boots and
I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the freezing rain

Snow up high
Won't you pour down over me
Yeah, I got some accretion
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

Happy Summer Solstice.  While I love winter weather, summer rules in terms of lighting it up.  In a perfect world, winter could happen with 14 hours of daylight.

NWS Huntsville found EF-2 damage in Cullman County, AL from the tornado yesterday. Another tornado occurred in Jackson County, AL but I do not think they have surveyed yet. Weak supercells have developed in NW Alabama once again this evening for the second day in a row.

Meanwhile, Lawrence County, TN took a hit from straight line winds for the second day in a row. The saturated soils probably had some impact, but that MCS produced damage all along southern TN.
AND A LOT CAN CHANGE BETWEEN NOW AND THEN.

For those who aren't fans of summa-time heat, Mr. Bailey is of the opinion the second half of summer will swing to cooler than normal, along with a cool autumn.  The emerging weak El Nino could play a part.  We'll see, but some long range models do show a cooling trend later this month.
