We didn't quite get to the temperature we were expected.  Topped out around 92-93, but the dewpoints made up for it and created heat index values near 110F.

Instead of a 97/73 day we had a 92/80 day which is probably even worse than the 97/73 day.

Same here except the humidity also stayed down. Topped out at 95/68. Forecast high was 99. I hope that pans out tomorrow as well. I’m spending the entire day outside performing inspections on the new I-24/I-75 split. Pretty much the hottest largest expanse of concrete in the southern valley. Forecast heat index is 108.

I’d move. Like tomorrow.

The nocturnal MCS that moved through NE TN really helped us out today. Heat index peaked at 103. Without it we would have been 105+. We nearly tied our record high minimum temp last night. Only dropped to 77. Record is 78.

DPs 80 and above are tough to get to. That's miserable.

DP’s look to pool ahead of the front at its leak today. 94 and 77 at KMEM with a HI of 108 at noon. Only about 45 more days until a real break although the next few days will be much better.

Too bad it didn't bring the rain.  I heard some thunder, and received about 0.05, while my family in Kentucky had flash flood warnings overnight.  I've endured two months of below normal precipitation, and the heat of the last few days even have my watered trees looking wilted.  This has been the driest summer here since 2016, but even that year had more rain than what the foothills have seen this year during the same timeframe.  Of course, there have been spotty storms, and some have done better or even worse than my backyard. Bottom line is: we really need a widespread soaking.

I was out noticing also how dry it has gotten here.  What worries me is yes a cool down will be nice but even with this quick hitting rain and storms.  It will not be enough help especially going into the usually dry months of August and September and possibly October.  Hate to say it but we need a tropical system to help us out.  If not fire season could be brutal for this area.

We in the Lascassas Valley have consistently missed decent rains as well.  My backyard has received less than two inches of rain since Father's Day while some areas of Rutherford County have picked up three times that amount.  It has definitely been feast or famine in Middle Tennessee so far.

Interesting that some of you are dry. My yard is thick and green. Don't think I've had a brown spot all year. I've even hesitantly wished for some extended dry weather to get some time off from mowing the yard, bush hogging, and weed eating fences.
