Happy 100th Birthday to the National Parks Service. The parks represent some of the most beautiful areas in our country with their diverse plant life, wildlife and history. We are so fortunate to have the most visited park right here in our state, the Great Smoky Mountains. NASA has shared some beautiful photos taken from the International Space Station of several of the parks. This is Olympic National Park in Washington State.
You can see more of them at this website.
Now let’s talk weather…another warm and muggy night…the thundershowers from earlier have dissipated.We did have some spectacular clouds form today. Look at this shot Karen captured.
Tomorrow an approaching front will bring a better chance of shower and thunderstorms. The front however will not bring any heat relief. Futurecast shows a dry start to the day. The rain and thunderstorms become more widespread in the afternoon and evening.
I don’t think it’s going to be a washout for Friday night football games, however, I do suggest you be prepared with the wet weather gear if you are headed to the game. Check back in with us tomorrow for an update.
After tomorrow, expect a typical summer pattern for the weekend with hot and sticky days and a chance of isolated thundershowers, especially in the afternoon. Highs will be in the low 90s and lows will be in the low 70s.
Keeping an eye on the tropics with tropical wave 99-L still a possible threat to the southeast with heavy rain. The spaghetti lines below represent the different computer forecast models, so you can see there isn’t a consensus on where it will go. It most likely will not have any impact on our weather here.
I’ll have an update on Channel 4 News at 10pm or after the football game.
