Summer Begins on a “Normal” Note

Posted on: 8:14 am, June 21, 2013, by

When we talk about “normal” weather, we are usually referring to the average weather on a given day over many decades, and a large variation can make up that average. It’s actually somewhat unusual to see “normal” weather, but that’s what we’ve been seeing around the Tennessee Valley of late, and as we officially begin summer today, we expect to  continue with very typical Southern summertime weather for the next several days, which of course means hot and humid afternoons and daily thunderstorm chances.

A few showers are already showing up on radar this morning. They are not anything significant, but we will likely see more storms as the air warms through the day. Like any summertime thunderstorm scenario, a few storms could be heavy, producing gusty winds and heavy rain. Don’t cancel your plans- the rain chance for any given location in the Valley is low- but you should always be ready to take cover from a pop-storm if one pays you a visit.
