Today: Partly Sunny, Hot, PM Storms – Noon 90° High 94°
A modest center of high pressure is located over the Midwest while another area of high pressure is settled in over the southeast. What’s in between? A weak frontal boundary to our northwest. And this front isn’t going anywhere fast…
Temps today will be hot once again in the lower 90s. With an uncomfortable amount of humidity, it’s likely today will feel as oppressive as previous days.
During the afternoon, like clockwork, expect showers and thunderstorms, some with heavy rain, frequent lightning, and gusty winds, to infiltrate middle Tennessee.
Here’s how the HRRR (High Resolution Model) sees it:
So there’s a decent chance we all see some sort of rain today. Keep the rain gear nearby!
Tonight: Afternoon Storms, Take A Hike – 9PM 83°
Any lingering afternoon storms will dutifully collapse and quickly fall apart at the approach of sunset. Temperatures will fall through the 80s into the upper 70s, so a nice night is in the bucket (beyond rain chances) for a Nashville Sounds ballgame.
Wednesday: Increased Rain Chance, More Storms North – Wake Up 75° High 92°
We’re hoping Wednesday turns out a bit cooler than Tuesday, based on the idea that cloud cover will be abundant. Storm chances are fairly widespread Wednesday, but notice the 4KM NAM now wanting to shove most activity north of our area.
This is something to watch close, as we *could* stay mostly dry if this idea verifies. After this summer’s unpredictability, I wouldn’t count on it.
Extended Outlook: Rain More Than Shine
Rain chances will continue to go up into the weekend as high pressure surrounding us breaks down. No widespread severe weather is anticipated.
