Friday – Partly Sunny With Isolated Showers/Thunderstorms Possible – High 93

For the past few days, we’ve been mentioning a disturbance forecast to be making its way to Middle Tennessee this afternoon. Well, that has lost a bit of steam, but it may still give a chance for showers and thunderstorms between 1 PM and 1 AM.

The HRRR has the showers Making it to Middle Tennessee by 2 PM.

19z HRRR

The SPC does not believe any thunderstorms that develop will be severe.

Saturday – Partly Sunny & Drier – Wake Up 72, High 92

Our heat is most oppressive with South winds. That “disturbance” (mentioned above) is turning the winds from the south to the northwest.

This means drier air for us, reducing our chances for pop up showers and lowering the humidity to bearable levels. The National Weather Service believes the dry air should make it to Middle Tennessee by Saturday afternoon.

It will still be hot, but at least we can be outside without feeling like we need gills.

Sunday – Mostly Sunny, Slight Chance Of Showers & Thunderstorms – Wake Up 70, High 92

We will continue to be drier (humidity wise) but we will have a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. The  NWS gives us our best chance for rain after 1 PM (during peak heating).

The SPC does not forecast any storms that develop to be severe.

Even though we have shed this humidity for the weekend it is still hot… Remember to stay hydrated!
