Temp & Rain Probabilities Next 36 Hours (auto-updating)

Editor’s Note: Today’s post is installment 9 of a 95 part summer series where we search for new ways to say it’s going to be hot and clever analogies to express levels of uncertainty about whether, when, and where a storm will pop up. Also: all text appearing in this faded color should be blamed on me.

Wednesday Bad – High 94

The high pressure that has kept us hot and dry the past week continues to dominate.

Today’s heat index (“feels like” temp) should top out at 98 degrees.

Ladies & Gentlemen, presenting what happens when you google “98 Degrees Hot”!

There’s a very slight chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms starting at 1 PM, and ending just after the sun sets.

Overnight, our chance for rain will diminish and we will become partly cloudy.

ThursdayWorse – Wake Up 72, High 95

Thursday will shape up much like Wednesday, except we will be a smidge hotter and more humid. This will make our heat index (how hot it feels to us) about 101 degrees.

High pressure will continue to keep our pops of rain very low…The National Weather Service is forecasting the chance for pop up isolated showers caused by daytime heating to begin to appear after 1 PM, and dissipate around sunset.

Friday Ugh – Wake Up 72, High 94

The high pressure that has kept us hot and relatively rain free will begin to deteriorate on Friday, increasing our chances for showers and thunderstorms.

The winds will begin to shift from the S to WNW, bringing in a disturbance with them.

The NAMs simulated radar shows the disturbance approaching Middle Tennessee by 1 PM.

18z NAM

We will have a chance for rain all day.

The SPC does not believe any storms in Nashville will be severe.
