“Unbelievably Comfortable for July”

Current Official Temp (taken at :53 every hour)

Early this morning we hit 58°, tying the record low daily temp for July 30, set back in 1965.

Celebrate!

Today’s temps will cruise into the mid 80°s, alongside humidity levels the NWS calls “unbelievably comfortable for July.” Temps will slide back into the low 60°s, maybe even the upper 50°s.

Highs should stay in the 80°s through the weekend.

Thursday, a weak low pressure system will form to our W, and pump in more clouds. We are watching a rain blob slowly migrate SE from Arkansas. We haven’t thought it will impact us, and rain still isn’t in the forecast, but model runs are starting to look like this:

Above is the RAP model depicting 5 AM Thursday morning. The Hi-Res NAM also has the rain blob coming very close to us around 3 AM:

So, maybe a little rain, but probably not. Frankly, we could use it.

By Friday, enough moisture will be pumped into Middle Tennessee to give us a very small chance of rain.

The Weekend looks nice. Moisture will continue to nudge back in, giving us actual chances of rain, but those chances are small. Rain is more likely south and east of us.

Reality returns next week. Temps should return to the 90°s . . .
