Today - Partly Cloudy & Chance For ShowersHigh 93

A weakening low that is situated over the Florida Panhandle will continue to influence our weather today. This low will create a slight chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms all day by pumping in ample amounts of moisture on a Southeasterly wind. Our best (slight) chance for rain will be in the afternoon and early evening. The National Weather Service believes the (slight) shower chances will end at 8 PM. In addition, the moisture in the air will make the heat index (real feel) close to 98 degrees.

Wednesday Cold Front – Wake Up 73, High 93

We will be hot and humid once again but a cold front is poised to make its way through Middle Tennessee Wednesday night bringing a chance for showers and thunderstorms along with it. The NWS is forecasting the chance for showers and storms beginning during the afternoon hours ahead of the front. This chance will increase overnight to “thunderstorms likely” as the frontal boundary slides overhead.

The NAM’s Simulated Radar show a line of showers and storms in Nashville by 4 PM.
