Hot, hot, hot at the CMAs

It’s hot out there, and only getting hotter for folks at the CMA Fest (and the rest of us too).  The folks at Vanderbilt University Medical Center want to make sure CMA fans don’t get heatstroke, so they’re handing out frozen towels in front of (what appears to be) a jet engine.  WKRN reporter Paige Hill enjoyed both this afternoon:

Nashville Severe Weather reports that temperatures will get to at least the mid-90s on Saturday (drink lots of water, they say, and seek shade — and don’t forget the sunscreen).  There’s also an ozone warning in effect for approximately the next 24 hours, so the weather folks recommend keeping outdoor exercise to a minimum tomorrow.

Do you realize it’s still winter?

We hit 87° today, which, well, I’ll just let the National Weather Service tell you:

FOLKS WERE BREAKING OUT THE SHORTS, TANK TOPS AND FLIP-FLOPS THIS
AFTERNOON IN NASHVILLE, AS RECORD-BREAKING HEAT ROLLED IN.

THE HIGHEST TEMPERATURE RECORDED SO FAR TODAY IN MUSIC CITY HAS
BEEN 86 DEGS, WHICH HANDILY SHATTERED THE OLD RECORD OF 82 SET
BACK IN 2012. INTERESTINGLY, THE 87 DEG HIGH TODAY MAKES THIS THE
WARMEST WINTER DAY EVER RECORDED IN NASHVILLE SINCE RECORD-
KEEPING BEGAN WAY BACK IN 1871. THE OLD SEASON RECORD AT NASHVILLE
WAS 86 DEGS, SET PREVIOUSLY ON MARCH 12 AND 13, 1907, MARCH 18,
1908 AND MARCH 19, 1982.

Nashvillian Niki Taylor got outside to enjoy the winter weather:
