Looks about normal for this time of year with highs around 90. Doesnít look oppressive - yet.

Would not mind some of that rain and a good lighting storm to sink down to mid state.

We have quite a bit of flooding across portions of Kentucky.  Beaver Dam had some evacuations and areas of McLean County to Grayson County have seen upwards of 7 inches of rainfall. 

Don't be surprised to see at least isolated ponding of roadways with these storms as they sink into Tennessee they have a ton of moisture to work with. They are also highly electric.

We just got back from camping at Fall Creek Falls. Itís amazing how nice eastern TN weather is. The highest high was about 82 and each morning was slightly chilly. Looking at the 15 day forecast there isnít a high for that area over 85.

I think when September rolls around we'll be looking back at an average to below average summer. We will certainly have a week or 2 of very humid and hot conditions, but I think we will hover around the high 80's to low 90's for the majority of it.

Yep probably so. Then late September through the first 7-10 days of October will scorch!

I've been so out of the loop and watch local news so little nowadays, I've never even heard of this guy. Back in the day, I pretty much knew who all the in-week morning and evening as well as weekend news station folks were in Nashville- but, not so much these days.

I can probably still rattle off a lot of the names of news station folks from the 80s and 90s.

I liked him & his predecessor Justin Bruce. Davis is the only one I care for on the station now. I am not a fan of May Mays or Danielle Breezy.

I remember Justin Bruce- he was good as I recall.

I mainly recognize Danielle Breezy's name because she has an awesome name for a weather anchor.

Glad we still have some staple veterans like Davis Nolan- he's been around my whole life or as long as I can remember.

Davis is only male left at WKRN in wx.  Justin Bruce was great.  Not sure about Breezy but she seems to be bringing in hot ladies to surround her.  If not her someone in hiring at WKRN is.  Look at all the ladies now at WKRN.  Younger and fit.  I noticed WTVF had a new one this morning in wx.

I seldom ever watch the tv news or weather anymore. I like the weather to be straight forward. It seems sometimes Breezy likes to go overboard on some things. Maybe it's just me.

Seems like weather departments are more staffed these days compared to back in the day when you had the main person during the week, and then the weekend weather person. Other than that, there might be the tertiary person to cover mornings or mid-day during the week.

Now, especially during wall to wall coverage, multiple people will be at the helm at the same time, with the on air people tossing the ball back and forth.

I'm going to date myself compared to some of you younger ones, but humor me as I think some of y'all my age and older will remember these in the Nashville area:

Local station weather people in Nashville over the years:

WKRN- During the 1980s, it was Tom Siler and Davis Nolan... Davis was kind of the secondary weekend guy, as I recall. When Siler left, I think he was promoted and became the primary for years. Some time in the early 1990s, Lisa Patton showed up as secondary, and Neil Orne also covered weather for a while. A few others came and went. Lisa became the primary after a while, and Davis stepped down to part time and reduced his on-air time, where he's been ever since, but they've retained his voice as a veteran, and I've always enjoyed when he's on. I think Lisa Patton retired from the station a few years ago. I'm probably overlooking some significant people, but my memory grows hazy since the 2000s.

WSMV - Bill Hall was THE weatherman in Nashville for generations, it seems like. He was the constant from the 1970s until the mid 2000s when he retired. He brought a confidence and comfort to the airways with his down-to-earth way of communicating. Most beloved, in a lot of ways, I think. Here are a few others from WSMV over the years:

Dan McDaniel - weekend, daytime, and frequent evening fill-in during the 1980s into the early 1990s.

Keith Bilbrey- some might remember him more for broadcaster roles with the Opry, WSM radio, and other related gigs. But, I remember him most for doing the morning weather for the Ralph Emery Show... which was sort of an old-school local variety show in the early mornings on WSMV, complete with musical guests and in-studio live commercial advertisements by local businesses. I mainly watched it to catch the Snowbird Report during the school winter months. :)

Mike Bohan - bearded, stout, and likable gentleman who was also a weather fill-in and occasional regular on mornings and weekends until he got a radio show gig with Gerry House (the House Foundation).

James Lewis - came on the scene in the 1990s I think. Likable, albeit quirky guy. I enjoyed his reports when he came on.

Nancy Van Camp - daytime and weekend weather person for a long time. She was one of the ones that got the raw deal by WSMV's management at the time a few years back, along with Demetria, Dennis Ferrier, and some others.

Lisa Spencer - pretty much the primary since Bill Hall I think.

There were others that I can see in my mind, but I'm drawing a blank on their names at the moment.

WTVF -

Ron Howes, like Bill Hall, was a staple for years. He also carried a confidence and experience to be trusted

Joe Case - daytime weather guy for a long time... especially during Channel 5's day time show "Talk of the Town."

Lelan Statom - weekend and morning weather guy for a long while. I think he was promoted when Howes retired.

Charlie Neese- youthful, likable guy during the 2000s- he left several years ago, I think.

With all these stations, it seems like it's been a revolving door for the last 10-15 years, and I can't keep up. So, my mind tends to go back 20+ years. I guess I'm getting old.

You can find old local broadcasts on Youtube. I have enjoyed going back and looking at portions of news and weather casts from the 1980s.

I remember all of them. They were all good too. I am even older. I remember Boyce Hawkins on 4, Bob Lobertini on 5 & also George Goldtrap tossing his chalk on 4. Tom Siler was the first one I remember on 2. Nobody used to ever watch 2 for the longest time going back to when it was Channel 8.

I've heard my family talk about Bob Lobertini and George Goldtrap, but they were a bit before my time and/or recollection.

Interestingly, Pat Sajak (yep, Wheel of Fortune, THAT Pat Sajak) did weather on Channel 4 here in the 1970s for a bit. John Tesh was also an anchor for a while, although I'm not sure anyone under 30 even knows who he is..

And, Oprah Winfrey was a reporter on Channel 5 back in those days, I think.

I remember all of them when they were in Nashville. Bob Lobertini & Boyce Hawkins had alcohol issues & died in sad situations. I remember  Sajak doing weather. That's how Dan Miller ended up as Sajak's Ed Mcmahan on the short lived talk show.

Good morning, and congratulations on making it halfway through 2020. We're not quite sure what Mother Nature has up her sleeve for this month, but at least it shouldn't involve snow.

Actually, the way this year's been going, we won't rule that out either.

Pilot program allows personal delivery devices on walkways ó A bill allowing delivery robots to operate at low speeds on sidewalks and crosswalks in a pilot program in Tennessee has been approved by the Tennessee General Assembly. The robots wonít be able to exceed 10 miles per hour and must be equipped with a braking system to come to a controlled stop. The robots have sensors that stop them when approaching a person, animal, or item. They would only operate in pedestrian areas and must be clearly marked, including contact information. The new law does not preempt local governmentsí ability to regulate the personnel delivery devices if necessary for public safety.

I remember Ron Kaiser was on channel 5, Bill Hall channel 4 and Tom Siler on 2. You talk about weathermen with different winter forecast. Kaiser would always lean to less snow, Bill was the most consistent and was usually the middle of road guy but he wasn't afraid to call for the big one or at least talk about the chances it could happen. Siler hit a big snow one time, he actually called it 2 weeks out and was inside 24 hours of the hit. It got him the name the weather wizard and he was popular for a few years as we had 3 or 4 good winters in the 70's. But over time he faded out. Bill Hall was the constant, my favorite year was 85. I was 20 years old and I lived with friends in town and Bill Hall was on one night while we were partying. We all loved snow and he started talking about a polar invasion coming and that we could have a month of winter to remember. I remember we got all exicted and sure enough the winter of 85 rocked.  We had several snows, the biggest was 8 inches and had 3 or 4 more in the 4-6 inch range. I remember the sun was out super bowl sunday but you would go snowblind if you went out without glasses. The glare was intense. ::guitar:: ::guitar:: ::cold:: ::snowman::

my favorite was probably wkrn Lisa patton and wsmv Bill hall and Nancy van camp

Those three blended forecasting with communicating to the viewer better than anybody, they all felt like somebody you would like to have a cup of coffee with.

Also they were not afraid to admit if a forecast busted and explain how it happened. I remember a particular snow event in early 2000's when all of mid Tennessee was supposed to get a good 4-5 inch snowfall and most of us did, but a warm nose went right up the I-65 corridor and busted Columbia/franklin and nashville's forecast and Lisa patton explained it so well and admitted they didn't see that coming

So far just isolated very sporadic wind reports...and no real organized deep shear to keep storm intensity maintained outside the typical summer-like pulsey behavior. SPC put out an MCD saying just a 20% chance of a watch which seems to be bearing out so far. Might pulse up some more as it continues SE but just doesn't look like a widespread severe threat.

Yep!! Had to drain our pool a while ago. It was almost to the top. And more coming from our friend Dyersburg!  ::drowning::

The ridging pattern this summer gives me a bit of concern for the Gulf Coast/Southeastern USA if that holds into August and beyond.

The pattern tends to focus the most intense ridging over the Great Lakes area and/or Desert Southwest/Permian Basin area.  This does prevent us from seeing the worst of the heat at least at this time, but it also allows for weaknesses to develop right along the Gulf Coast and SE Coast leaving that area very vulnerable to tropical storm/hurricane threats later this summer into the early fall.

Interesting to note that the tropical depression that formed today off SC was the result of an MCV that spawned in southern middle TN on July 1. It moved off the coast of Georgia and had maintained convection since.

The models are showing what I would consider our first true heatwave next weekend into the following week. 

The GFS 2m temperatures and urban heat island effect may be too extreme but widespread mid to perhaps upper 90s with humidity may occur in our area which much worse occurring in Kansas, Oklahoma, and Southwest Missouri.

Was just about to post this.  The 15 day has 90+ every day.  True summer time heat has arrived!

At first, it does look like the heat ridge will be centered moreover say Kansas/Oklahoma allowing for scattered heat of the day storms to cool us off.

I do think as we end this month and head into August the Desert SW Monsoon will kickoff and push the core of the ridge closer to our area during the classic dog days of summer from late July and probably last through the entire month of September, to be honest.

My new weather station peaked out at 95.5 today with a heat index of 104. It may be a bit high, but it isnít too far off. Itís definitely the hottest day of the year so far.

Yikes, I wonít even consider running unless itís 60+ degrees out and really prefer 85+.  I just love how it kicks your a$$ when itís hot as ****.  Never get that feeling when itís mild temps.

I don't mind the heat as long as it's not outrageously humid. The thing is, I have to prepare for a long distance run in advance when it's hot and humid outside. I typically can just bolt out the door in mild or cold weather without having to worry too much about hydration, but if the heat index is pushing 100 then I will need a day to get ready for any run longer than 8 miles. The longest distance I'll run in weather like this is normally 5 or 6 miles.

In the winter, I can put on my trail shoes and run 10 to 15 miles without a worry as long as my pace doesn't exceed 7:30/mile. I just cannot do that kind of running in the summer heat. I like to shorten my distances and focus on speed in the summer if I can.

I agree with you there. Definitely canít do the same distances in the heat, I keep it to 3-4 miles but up my pace.

Just me, but I refuse to run if it's over 80.

Of course, I also refuse to run if it's under 80.

To me, the best running/hiking/jogging/power walking temperature is between 39 and 75 degrees with perhaps a moderate amount of humidity and a light breeze. Not desert-dry but not as Beau Dodson calls it, "The air that you wear".   

If it gets too cold the risk of injury can increase especially if you don't have a good stretching routine.  If it gets too hot or too humid then you can overexert yourself.

My best distance runs come when I can make it to the bathroom, then the kitchen (fridge) and back to the couch before the commercials are over!!!

Someone is putting false mPing reports all across the country with things like "buildings completely destroyed". In Alabama the reports literally outline the state.

So there goes the credibility of mPing going forward as an official reporting tool most likely.  ::bangingheadintowall::

OHX radar down for maintenance:
Quote
...KOHX Doppler Radar Out of Service for Maintenance This Week... Beginning today, July 7, the KOHX Doppler Radar will be down through July 14 for the replacement of the generator, fuel tanks, and accompanying components. The radar may return to service earlier if the maintenance is completed ahead of schedule. This activity is important to support the radars operation during periods of commercial power outages, specifically when hazardous weather is present. This generator update is the fifth major project of the NEXRAD Service Life Extension Program (SLEP), a series of upgrades and replacements that will keep our nations radars viable into the 2030s. The first project was the installation of the new signal processor and the second project was the transmitter refurbishment. The two remaining projects are the refurbishment of the pedestal and equipment shelters. The Service Life Extension Program will complete in 2023. During the outage, radar data from Hytop, AL (HTX), Fort Campbell, KY (KHPX), and the Nashville Airport Terminal Doppler Radar (TBNA) may be used for Middle Tennessee.

They live on Almaville. I've been over there off and on every day for the last week. I had to call Dad last night to tell him to roll his Traeger back into the garage unless he wanted to get soaked doing it

That is our ridge pattern that I was afraid of.  This is a massive ridge it legit stretches from the Desert Southwest all across the Atlantic to the freaking Sahara Desert in Northern Africa.
