Smyrna, Tennessee is currently at 113F. This sets a new daily record (previous record was 101F in 1952), a new monthly record (previously it was 103F in 1954), and a new all-time record high (previous all-time high was 109F). Many places in the region are joining the club of places that set their all-time record highs in June instead of July or August.

Equal in its incredible notoriety, Smyrna is currently the hottest place in the United States east of the Rockies, and is tied for the hottest place in the entire country . Lake Havasu City, Arizona is at 113F as well. Death Valley is at 111F. It's not often that Death Valley offers better weather for me than anywhere in Tennessee.

At 3:15 p.m. CST, I observed the following temperatures:

96 in Gatlinburg, TN
101 in Bloomington, IN
101 in Petersburg, W.VA
104 in Tuscaloosa, AL
105 in Toccoa, GA
105 in Florence, AL
106 in Huntsville, AL
106 in Athens, GA
106 in Monticello, KY
106 in Farmington, MO
108 in Columbia, SC

And the misery award goes to.....Smyrna, TN, who hit a blistering 113 degrees today.

Absolutely incredible numbers, and it's only going to get worse. Records are getting smashed left and right. How much longer until fall???

Yea that's the thing. It's still June. Usually we get our hottest temps late July or early August when fall is just around the corner. We still have all summer left. But at this point I'm not tired of the heat yet. It gets a little much when it's still hot in late August.

I guess I shouldn't complain. Up until this past week, we enjoyed a relatively cool June. (in Alabama). It was 52 degrees on the morning of June 2nd. Even at daybreak yesterday morning, I could see my breath in the cool morning air. All in all, it hasn't been bad - but I guess the bill has finally come due! lol.

Yes, the bill has come, along with a 1000% interest rate. The weather you get in the South is more about the domination of heat than balancing out heat and cold. Put another way, the price for any good weather is wildly disproportionate.
