An opportunity to see some great fireworks and meet yours truly!

Do you have big plans for the Independence Day weekend?  I can just about guarantee that you won't be rained out!  However, it will be hot.  Highs will reach the upper 90s this afternoon, Sunday, and Monday and humidity levels will rise a little each day.  Look for heat index values between 100-104 each afternoon.  Wear plenty of sunscreen and re-apply after a few hours if you will be out very long.  Also, there is a Code Orange ozone alert in effect today, which I expect might continue Sunday and possibly Monday.  This will make it difficult for those with asthma and other breathing conditions to be outside for long.  The full 8-day forecast can be found here. will be out and about tonight, so if you want to meet me (Erik), come to the Flag City Freedom Celebration in Millington.  I'll be "on duty" as the official weather observer for the event, measuring any rain that falls (though I might as well leave the gauge at the office)!  If you spot me, introduce yourself!  I'll have free downloads of the MWN iPhone app with me just for the asking!  If you're not sure who to look for, check out this blog post.  I'll have on the white MWN polo and the MWN rain gauge will be on the dock at the lakehouse, by the VIP viewing area.  But it's not just about me right?  The event is well-done and the fireworks are phenomenal over Navy Lake!

Stay cool this weekend, have a safe 4th, and MANY THANKS to all active duty military and veterans who allow my family to celebrate the freedoms we enjoy! God bless you!
