Warm temperatures are expected for the entire week ahead, and it looks like it’s going to continue through the first week of May.

Highs will be mostly in the 70s to low 80s, as we only have one cold front to deal with, and that one will bring showers and thunderstorms Thursday.

So Friday will be a little bit cooler, with highs in the upper 60s, but then we will quickly rebound into the 70s for the weekend.

There were 10 tornadoes to hit Tennessee thus far in 2021, with five in West Tennessee, four in the mid-state and one in East Tennessee. The strongest was an EF-2 that affected Lawrence, Wayne and Lewis counties on March 25.

We have about another month remaining in the tornado season in the Volunteer State, so hang on; we may not be done yet.

We will have to be on guard Thursday for stronger storms because of the warmer temperatures we will have.

Did you know if the Earth didn’t have an atmosphere and oceans, the planet’s daily temperature would be much like the moon with an average high of 260 degrees and a low of 280 below zero?
