Nothing says welcome to summer then a nice stretch of 95ºF days does it! And that is exactly what we are going to get. With these heat indexes reaching over 100ºF, if you are out today, make sure you have plenty of water with you and take the breaks that are needed.
Here in Macon County, this weekend is going to be the 34th Annual Hillbilly Day and the real action starts today at the event. If you are going to be out enjoying the games and booths, or working at a booth (like myself) make sure you have plenty of water and take breaks as much as possible. And if you wear light color clothes and shorts, that helps out a lot more then you would think.
This warm weather is going to stay in the forecast til at least Monday, then later next week we could see those high's dip back into the low 90's for Nashville and maybe even get a few upper 80's on the Plateau or Rim.
