Dry Sunday (Probably), High 91°
The chance of rain today is low. The reason isn’t exciting, so I’ll just show the HRRR model, below, which thinks a few showers/storms may pop up briefly by mid/late afternoon. Don’t alter any outdoor plans.
Dewpoints will hover around 70°. Low 90°s temps will introduce a heat danger, but it’s not like we need to freak out about it. Hydrate, shade, you know the drill.
We don’t do much stupid stuff @NashSevereWx, but Sharknado is one of them. Sharknado 4 is tonight. As we said three years ago:
If you have *anything* to do tonight, do that. If not, watch Sharknado on Syfy at 6 pm.

If you’re unfamiliar, Sharknado is one of those movies that’s so bad it’s fun. If you’re still on the fence about watching it, and you’re mature with a refined sense of humor, don’t watch. For everyone else, let’s revisit the Sharknado 3 viewing guide:
Sharknado 3 viewing guide:
1. Lower expectations.
2. Lower them more.
3. Keep going.
4. Gather your friends.
5. Drink responsibly, & enjoy.

It starts at 7 PM. Sharknado is much more fun watching it live while following the #sharknado4 hashtag. If you DVR it, you’ll miss that social media collective experience thing. 7 PM, y’all.
Models Disagree About Rain/Storms Monday
The NAM4 model shows a strong thunderstorm complex coming down I-24 from Kentucky around lunchtime Monday:
The GFS and Euro models disagree. They don’t see it. No one really knows what to do with the forecast. NWS-Nashville increased our rain chances to account for the uncertainty.
High pressure will build again, turning the screw on the heat. Temps at 5,000 feet Wednesday should reach 21°-22°C (that’s hot), driving our high temp back into the mid 90°s. With some low level moisture present, we may squeeze out a few showers or storms, but nothing particularly satisfying. That’s why your crap apps look like this:
