Tonight: Warm and Muggy – 9PM 83°
An “Air Quality Alert” continues:
A scorcher of a day has encompassed middle Tennessee. The good news is that we are now on the decline, with temps falling later this evening. It will be a bit muggy, though, so the outdoors will feel less than comfortable.
As CMA Fest continues tonight, temperatures will only fall back into the 80s. It’ll be another warm one.
Today’s temperature and dew point trend:
Sunday: Feeling Oppressive, More Humidity – Wake Up 72° High 93°
As previously advertised, Sunday won’t be the hottest day of the weekend, but it may *feel* like it. Increasing dew point values and hot temperatures will turn the outdoors into a steam bath.
A weak shortwave will begin impacting Tennessee on Sunday, bringing with it the chance for a few pop up showers or storms.
The main focus on Sunday for this garden variety rain appears to be well south of the area, but with a little forcing and considering the amount of heat/humidity already in place, don’t be surprised if a shower pops up somewhere nearby.
4KM NAM Sunday at 3PM
Otherwise, Sunday is just another hot day. Stay cool and hydrated!
Monday: Rain Chances Increase Slightly – Wake Up 72° High 92°
With better forcing and moisture in place, Monday has an increased chance of showers and a few thunderstorms. Temps will top out in the lower 90s for highs.
If you get caught under one of these storms, the rain should cool the air down about 10 degrees or so. In other words, any rain would be relief from these hot summertime temps.
The greatest chance of storms appears to be in the late afternoon and early evening.
Rain chances will be on the increase this week as a high pressure ridge breaks down allowing for waves of showers and storms to *move in*.
