An unsettled weather pattern will be the story through midweek with numerous showers and thunderstorms.

Many locations received as much rain on Father’s Day as we had seen during the previous two weeks. It looks like the weather will improve on Thursday and Friday but then more scattered thunderstorms will appear next weekend.

One of the worst heat waves ever recorded in Tennessee was on June 29, 2012. An abnormally hot, dry air mass settled over Middle Tennessee and Nashville hit a record high of 109.

Other record highs were set at Woodbury (110), Sparta (108), McMinnville (106), Cookeville (105) and Jamestown and Monterey (103).
