why I got Bermuda …it can survive these Tennessee hot n humid dry summers ….

Absolutely, very low maintenance grass. Especially if it’s not the golf course variety.

A couple of things I don't care for about Bermuda grass...

1) Its dormancy... it looks completely dead during the winter and takes a while to green up during the spring
2) The "viney" runners that like to invade landscaping and spread into adjacent yards that you have to keep "edged."

It is true that it holds up in hotter climate. I understand this area is really the edge of the viable region for fescue, so it does require a lot of watering during hot, dry stretches. There might be just enough difference in the climate between West and Middle TN that fescue isn't worth the trouble in West TN.

Looks like a state wide shot at 1” or so of rain next week.  Maybe we won’t flip to drought as bad as past summers.  So far in W TN we are golden.

Tuesday looks pretty unbearable with highs right around 100F for most of us and dewpoints creeping into the low to mid 70s ahead of the frontal system.  Good shot at some 110F heat index values on that day. 

This weekend and Monday the heat index values look to stay around 100F as dewpoints are in the 60s versus the 70s.  Still sucky but not unbearable.

Long rang has a “semi permanent” Mid South to Southern Plains super high well into July. Looks like many days of upper 90’s to low 100’s. Those from middle to east might be in the periphery to get a NW flow to get some relief. Yuck.

Hate every minute of this. I really need a vacation home in the North Pole for summer

Overall general pattern, the durability of these subtropical ridges, and climo/ENSO analogs suggest that days below 95F will be rare between now and Sept 15th.

We are going into 1999, 2010, 2016, and 2019 territory folks. The only good news is that as we flash drought and dry out the humidity may lessen a bit, especially when we get to August.

The best way to deal with this heat is to just be out in it mid you are capable.  Eventually it doesn’t feel as bad

All things considered we really have missed the worst of the latest heatwave with low humidity (well for Memphis standards) and various things like mixing, cloud cover, and breezes from old OFBs from the north/west coming through. Tomorrow looks pretty hot though.  We'll see about July. I am not convinced the death ridge will set in for weeks yet.
