Maybe Another Shower Tonight; Hot, Humid, Rain-Free Weekend

Tonight – Few Showers – High 89

We did not make it to 90 today. That will not be a problem next week.

A weak cold front is very slowly pushing storms through Middle Tennessee.

Our NWS says: “Looks like the main threat from storms [over the] next couple of hours will be wet microbursts from water loading.” Radar show storms, which were once severe, are already weakening as they drop south from Kentucky. They should arrive around 6 pm or so. We may see a few bolts of lightning and brief heavy downpours.

The HRRR model below did not initialize very well with its latest run, so it may actually be under-doing things for us. Remember, use models for guidance, not Gospel.

HRRR models thinking Friday 4 PM – 9 PM:

By 7 pm this evening, things should be a lot quieter as the rain/showers rumble to our south.

Saturday – Hot & Humid – High 91

7a 71 . 10a 82 . 1p 88 . 4p 90 . 7p 86 . 10p 77

The rain is gone! Lets hope you get some rain from tonight’s storms, because a dry spell begins Saturday. Pull the BBQ and coolers out and embrace what’s left of the Summer.

Sunday – Sunshine – High 90

7a 70 . 10a 81 . 1p 88 . 4p 90 . 7p 86 . 10p 77.

Hot and humid. A high pressure system is building a huge ridge across the eastern USA. This results in little to no change in the forecast from Saturday to Tuesday (and maybe longer).
