A surface cold front has already passed through Middle Tennessee, opening the door to cooler and drier air for tomorrow. However, there’s still enough low level moisture hanging around to pop up a shower or two early tonight. Be aware, but don’t alter any outdoor or overnight plans. Have an umbrella handy.
Sunday – Beautiful – High 81
7am 63 . 10am 73 . 1pm 79 . 4pm 81 . 7pm 77 . 10pm 69
Cooler, drier air! No chance of rain. Great news for the Pancake Ride http://harpethbikeclub.com/rides/sunday-pancake-ride
or whatever else you have going tomorrow.
We may approach the record for coolest July 29 temperature Sunday night. The record low is 58 set in 1925.
Monday – Awesome – High 84
Bit warmer, but still unseasonably cool.
Rest of the Week
Typical summer weather includes high pressure off to our east. Because winds spin clockwise around high pressure, high pressure to our east brings the wind from out of the south, delivering warmer temps and Gulf of Mexico moisture/humidity. An illustration:
Right now, we are enjoying an atypical pattern. The usual “Bermuda High” is nowhere to be found, and it’s not returning anytime soon.
This week’s weather pattern will be spring-like, with two fronts sweeping in from the west or northwest Wednesday and possibly next weekend. With this comes the chance of rain Tuesday/Wednesday and again next Saturday.
Temps will gradually warm up through the week, making it only to 90 by Friday.
