Extended Outlook: HOT, Muggy, Increasing Storm Chances
The middle-end to next week looks relieving, according to NWS Nashville:
Thursday - Friday...what is that in the extended long range models? Is that actually some much needed relief in the heat on the horizon??? Well, yes. Yes it is. Or at least we`re all hoping so as the upper ridge shifts well off to the west and somewhat westerly zonal flow develops. Good news...with this active pattern setting up, the region can expect much better chances for showers and thunderstorms Thursday through next weekend as an upper trough approaches the area. So let`s get through the heat and humidity of this weekend and look forward to a little relief in the way of showers and thunderstorms by next week`s end.
