Plains Bust?; Deja-Vu June Day Minus the Wind

It's not everyday that you can a preliminary 35 reported tornado day a bust, but from what the models where saying the numbers where and what it was going to bring, 50 tornado reports were likely. The storms keep colliding with each other and killing each other out and could never get going. But notice all the wind reports, 226! And I heard of one report say that the winds gusted to about 85-90 mph. That's just as rough as an EF-0 tornado. We, thankfully, don't have any injuries or deaths to report from yesterday's storms. Kansas and Iowa I believe where close to having the same total of tornadoes reported.

Now back here in the southeast, its still the same old, hot and dry conditions. I remember saying that the southeastern sections of TN and the Plateau have a chance at a passing shower, well those chances are so light that if you got a shower it wouldn't help much. I'll put the chances at a meager 10%. the high's today are going to be high on the thermometer. At least were not over in Raleigh, NC where they could get close to 100º today! Here's the high's for today and the isolated rain chances.

Nashville: low to mid 90's
Clarksville: low 90's
Cookeville: upper 80's to low 90's; far eastern Putnam County (Monterrey), 10% chance
Columbia: mid 90's
Manchester: low to mid 90's; over near Chattanooga, 10% chance
