Copy and Paste Forecast? Pretty Much.
It’s still kinda humid and dry, though we will have a slight drop in high temps.
These above-average high temperatures keep pushing us closer to breaking a record:
“Still looks to reach the 90s for much of the area, with Nashville now at the #2 most 90 degree days ever in a year and inching ever closer to the all time record set in 1954.” @NWS-Nashville
Keep the AC and Sunscreen Close By – Heat and Sunshine here to Stay
Honestly I’m beginning to feel like a broken record, because hot and dry conditions continue:
Good news? Dewpoint temps will drop Friday into the upper-50s!
It’ll still be hot, but at least the air won’t be sticky.
Dewpoints will rise slightly to the lower-60s this weekend.
Those of you going to Pilgrimage should only have to worry about sunscreen and water.
Not Much Relief in Sight; “Abnormally Dry” Conditions Grow
Since last week, “Abnormally Dry” conditions have spread across much of the state, and now includes Nashville.
Unfortunately, I do not have reaffirming news right now:

We need the rain, but so far it’s not looking like we will have much luck for the remainder of the month.
Stay cool, and keep checking back for updates!
