Meteorological summer, aka fake summer, ends tonight. As weather nerds even we agree fall does start until Sept 22, 2016 at 9:21 A.M. CDT.

It is also still WAY TOO HOT to be considered fall for us.
***For the rest of the afternoon, expecting for mostly cloudy skies transitioning into partly cloudy skies. Still have a small chance of showers/thunderstorms to develop over our area. Some have begun to fire to our West, but the majority of us should stay dry. Rain chances will continue to dwindle the remainder of the afternoon***
Current satellite imagery shows partly cloudy skies throughout our region. You can also see Hurricane Hermine just nearing the panhandle of Florida. This tropical system will not be coming our way, but will in turn help to cut off that hot and humid air for the next few days.
Tonight: Partly Cloudy – Temps Into the Mid 60s Overnight
Great night for those with outdoor plans. Skies should be clear of any rain by the time we reach the evening hours.
Vanderbilt Football Game Forecast:
Kick-Off at 7 PM: 80°
Winds: NNE around 10 mph
Overall Conditions: Great! Could get a shower or two during tailgating (especially those out very early) but most showers should be gone by the late afternoon hours. Any showers we see should be clear by game time! Temps will fall pretty quickly through the game, so it could be a bit chilly by the end.
Friday: Sunny – Wake Up 65° High 84°
Great start to the long weekend with clear skies for the entire day. Highs will be in the mid 80s with our dew point temps falling gracefully back into the low 60s. With our dry atmosphere, we doubt we will see any rain.
Winds cold become a bit gusty through the day, staying 10-15 mph with gusts up to 20 mph.
Labor Day Weekend Outlook: Looks Fantastic
Great weekend ahead for those with plans in the Middle TN area. All that tropical air will be shut off for the weekend, which will leave us with pleasant temps and dew point temps in the low 60s.
Conditions will begin to become less favorable again by the middle next week.
