Comfortable Temps to Start the Work Week, Warming Up Toward the Weekend


That cold front that came through this weekend is doing us some good.

Even better news? There’s another one that’s coming through tonight into early Tuesday morning.

Dew points are expected to reach 65° this afternoon. It will still feel sticky outside, but mixed with those lower temps, it’s going to feel noticeably better than what we experienced in late July.

A big portion of the rain should stay in far eastern Tennessee, but we can’t rule out some pop up showers and thunderstorms rolling into our neck of the woods. They should begin to pop up around 3 pm and be out of the area before midnight.

There is currently no severe weather in the forecast, but here’s what the National Weather Service had to say about any storms that do pop up:

Could hear a few claps of thunder here and there, but not expecting anything more than a couple weak thunderstorms if that.

Tomorrow is going to feel great!

With that cold front moving through overnight, highs are looking to be in the low to mid 80s (crazy right??). Dew points will remain in the mid to upper 60s.

It should stay dry throughout the day, but we can’t rule out a stray shower or storm popping up in your neighborhood.

Our greatest chance of seeing any rain would be after 1 pm.

If you have any afternoon or dinner plans, just watch that radar for any pop up showers and storms.

Warming Back Up


We knew this wouldn’t last forever, but we definitely wish it would last more than a couple of days!

Wednesday will be much like Tuesday with highs in the low to mid 80s.

Thursday and Friday will begin to warm back up into the upper 80s and low 90s, much like we’ve been seeing.

The big kicker: dew points will be staying in the mid 60s. We’ll be getting a break from those awful heat index values.

We’ll still be following the same “scattered showers and storms” set up.


That’s the number of kids who have died in hot cars this year. The latest child was 8 months old.

The numbers are continually going up. We haven’t seen a case in Tennessee yet, but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen. Make sure to check your backseat before you get out of the car. Put something of importance back there: a purse, laptop, phone, even one of your shoes. This will cause you to do a double-take of your backseat.

Don’t just crack the windows! It still gets super hot super fast in a car, even if the windows are cracked.
