Fireworks and dry conditions aren’t a good combination.But with the Fourth of July one week away, all of Middle Tennessee is mired in a drought – with more scorching temperatures in the forecast. Monday is the only day before July 4 when rain is predicted.After a somewhat cooler day Tuesday, temperatures are predicted to be in the mid to high 90s for a solid week and could reach triple digits this weekend. Fireworks are being blamed for a fire Saturday where a lawn caught fire.
