Afternoon dewpoints will jump from the mid 50°s Tuesday (pretty comfortable) to the mid 60°s (gross) Wednesday + high temps in the low to mid 90°s = typical August humidity.

Along with that: the chance of rain.

The Hi-Res NAM illustrates what’s happening in Missouri, which will be a breeding ground for showers and thunderstorms over the next 3 to 5 days. The white arrow shows the NW wind, which will be kicking off showers and thunderstorms in Middle TN from Wednesday through Friday, then into the weekend.

Showers are less likely Wednesday and more likely Thursday. There is no consensus on when and where, but we have good reason to rain/storms will be around Middle TN during the next 5 days. Some storms may be strong, but organized severe weather is not expected.

Rain is welcome, especially in N Davidson Co, where “abnormally dry” conditions persist:
