Nice Way To End June; Huntsville Air Show Update

As we close out a rather hot and dry June, today won't feel all that hot, but it will be mainly dry (could have an isolated shower pass in South Central KY and Northern Mid. TN). As we head into July, the temperatures are going to be below average for this time of the year and you can thank the strong cold front that came through the area Saturday for that.

I've learned of more details of the air show tragedy. The number of injuries has gone up to 12. The child who passed away was a small, 5-year old boy, but his name is being held due to his families wishes til this afternoon. Please remember this family in your prayers. The highest wind gust that was recorded was 48 mph (which is 10 mph below severe limits). The storm is being called a microburst: which are also called downburst, and they cause outflows of wind gust to reach the earth's surface and do so without very much warning.

Here's today's forecasted high's (which will seems like lows for some people!)

Nashville: upper 70's to low 80's
Clarksville: upper 70's to low 80's
Cookeville: low 70's!!!! (How about those numbers Mike?)
Columbia: upper 70's to low 80's
Manchester: low 80's
