Is there relief to this heat? Well sort of, look at the 7 day forecast for Monday, the highs 90 or below and lows 70 or below. A little cooler than the rest of the week. Are you looking forward to next Monday? Or do you want this heat to continue? #tnwx #mswx #arwx
?Preliminary Survey Results for Benton Co and Carroll Counties? Pleminary damage surveys indicate at least an EF-2 tornado in Benton County as well as an EF-2 tornado in Carroll County.... both with wind speeds of approximately 125 MPH. #tnwx
Ice Safety. It will be even tougher to judge the thickness of the ice with the snow on it. Here is a chart for how thick the ice needs to be for some safety. Estimates the ice might be 1 to 2 inches thick tonight. So still too thin to even venture out on.
Memphis has been below freezing for 6 consecutive days. This marks the 4th longest such streak since records began in 1875. We are looking at 3 more days below freezing so we should be able to tie the all-time record of 9 days consecutive days. #tnwx #mswx #mowx #arwx
