I was amazed at the heat when took kids to school at 7:30 this morning.  I am thinking with this heat the storms tonight should be quiet electrical.  Usually heat fuels lighting.

Earth transforms sunlight's visible light energy into infrared light energy, which leaves Earth slowly because it is absorbed by greenhouse gases. When people produce greenhouse gases, energy leaves Earth even more slowly Ė raising Earth's temperature. http://www.howglobalwarmingworks.org/

KCHA hit 100 today for the first time in several years. Heat index is 109 right now, but peaked at 111. That's the highest heat index I can ever remember seeing here. The 2011 heat wave saw air temps of 107, but a HI of only 104.

We topped out at 116. The DP was 82. Since a little breeze started blowing the DP dropped to 78.

Heck of a summer storm system this afternoon. Been a while since Iíve seen marble sized hail. And the lightning was intense! Sitting in traffic on the Old Hickory bridge over I65 in Brentwood I witnessed multiple CG strikes all around. Fun to watch!

It was a good one, for sure. I was one exit up at Harding Place and got to see a heck of a fireworks show. I had some real close ones, and one or two were positive strikes that shook my truck.

Some of the coldest cloud tops Iíve ever seen across SE TN right now. Almost constant lightning and plenty of rain. I wonder what CAPE values were like this afternoon with triple digit air temps down here.

I looked and the cape is over 4000 in your area. ::wow::

In need of rain in many eastern areas of the TN valley.  So far in August, I've only recorded .31" of rain--way below normal.  After the next 3 days of heat, we'll be parched.  A decent shot of moisture is possible by mid week, but the last front only "blessed" us with a quarter inch.

August is the most boring month.  Usually hot and dry.  I wish we could skip August.  Only reason I like it is football is close.  First half of September is also usually hot and dry.  Football saves it for me.
