Sun, Jun 14 More sun than clouds. Warm. 89°F 68°F 100°F 35%
Since people have been comparing the heat of various Roos, I looked up the hottest day of each Roo and the humidity and posted them below. If the front moves north, this could easily be the hottest Roo ever. If the front stays south, this could be one of the best ever. Flip a coin as to which will happen.
For reference, 2007 was the hottest year in absolute temperature but 2004 felt the hottest.
2002 89(91) 59avg 46min (muggy)
2003 84(87) 88avg 54min (muggy)
2004 93(97) 76 avg 43min (hot, muggy,monsoon)
2005 82(81) 47avg 30 min (overcast, drizzle)
2006 95(94) 57avg 27min (drought)
2007 97 (94) 54avg 22min (bad drought)
2008 92(91) 84avg 31min (drought)
Note on calculations: Since warm air can hold more water than cold, relative humidity (RH) decreases as temperature rises. This is why the RH is usually lowest in the heat of the day and max at night (that’s why dew/fog comes at night). For that reason I used the daily min RH to calculate heat index. I also listed avg RH as it gives an idea of night temp drops (cooler nights w/ lower RH), amount of dew and general mugginess.
Like you impatiens had me look at this two. From the looks of everything I seen was thunderstorms waning down Thursday and Friday with the worst of the four days on Thursday and like you said nice on Saturday and Sunday.
Looks good so far. I just hope the weather is as good as last year, I never really thought it was that hot. Truthfully I went to Lollapalooza about a month later and thought it was much hotter there then Bonnaroo. Hope we get some rain but not enough to turn the entire place into a mud pit.
no scoop yet but pretty excited about the forecast... its not going to be hot at ALL. awesome! then again this coming from SwFL where the highs here are already about 10deg above the roo forecast. but there's two sides to every coin, because the nights sound chilly!

I hate to double post, but I just got another email back from my weatherman. He says that he is going to stay on top of it, send me a forcast when it's closer, and announce the forecast on air for the local Bonnaroovians!
its been raining here every day for looooong periods. sucky. usually it rains in smaller bursts. im glad though, because i got to try out equipment in serious rain, and now no matter what roo throws at us we will be dry and nothing will collapse. (probably jinxed myself there)
dryday is weird though, i tried looking it up for where i live and pretty much every day is a risky day. it does rain every day here, but usually for like an hour at the most. is tn the same thing, or does it rain there for long jags?
I live in Cookeville, Tennessee and manchester is just a ways south of here. The weather for the past week or so has been GREAT. It cooled off alot and has been in the 70s, sunshine, and a cool breeze. I can only hope we have this kind of weather for Roo. A nice rain the day on wednesday would be perfect and maybe some rain friday night. It would keep the dust down all weekend. Ill be watching the forecast!
