Hot, but Lower Heat Index Values

Current Radar

THIS EVENING: 85° by 7 PM 

It’ll still be quite warm by this evening, but skies should be mostly clear and the rain will continue to stay away:

Temperatures will bottom out in the low 70°s overnight.

THURSDAY – Higher Heat Index Values = Higher Heat Danger – Wake Up: 72º, High: 96º

As if we didn’t have enough heat in the vicinity, a warm front will pass through early on Thursday.

This will cause winds to become more southerly tomorrow, allowing for more moisture to creep-in.

This will also help to push our high temperature for tomorrow to near 96°.

Because of this, heat index values will be back up to dangerously high levels.


Don’t expect any relief in the form of rain, either. We should stay dry tomorrow, as well:

FRIDAY – Severe Storms Possible – Wake Up: 75º, High: 89º

Friday afternoon brings a chance for some severe weather as a large weather pattern shift occurs.

The jet stream will take a big dip down into the eastern US, knocking out the ridge (high pressure) that has been in place for over a week now.

This will open the door for a low pressure system to move through, bringing some thunderstorms with it.

We are on the cusp of marginal/slight severe risk for Friday:

Right now, the concerns with any severe storms look to be strong, damaging winds and small hail.

Here’s one model output for Friday evening. The timing of the cold front (line of storms NW of Tennessee) will be key here.

This Morning’s Model Run: 

Latest Model Run as of 5:15 PM Wednesday:

Still thinking this will be a late Friday/early Saturday rain/thunderstorm event.

More on this tomorrow.

EXTENDED: Storms Gone by Sunday
