With thousands of people pouring into Middle Tennessee this week for CMA Fest & Bonnaroo, our weather couldn’t work out much better!….well…at the onset at least. This weekend, as those festivals peak and draw to a close, the hottest weather in nine months will set up shop over our area!
Today was absolutely gorgeous by June standards…
Outside in the shade, it felt like a perfect 10! We had a nice breeze with low humidity, too. Any of you outdoors for a while though, in direct sunlight, probably wished we could have shaved a few degrees off the temperature. This time of year, the sun’s rays are almost as strong as they get through the whole year, so if you’re in the sun, it can quickly take a toll!
Tomorrow, we will drop back a degree or two in the afternoon. The early morning will be MUCH cooler though. This pleasant change will be brought about by high pressure building toward Middle Tennessee, currently centered over Missouri:
Here’s a look at what we expect for temperatures around 6am tomorrow.
Tomorrow afternoon’s highs:
Weather for the official kickoff of CMA Fest tomorrow looks outstanding! Opening ceremonies are at 11am.
I’ve had good news so far. This is the part many of you won’t be thrilled with. Late this week and into the weekend, our temperatures will do a complete 180 and skyrocket….thanks to a core of very warm air about a mile above the ground that slides in from the Plains. Expect afternoon temperatures to be a full 10-15 degrees higher than tomorrow’s — in the 90s!
Here’s your Bonnaroo outlook. Sunday’s weather there in Manchester will be similar to Saturday’s.
Back in Nashville, it’ll be even hotter! We expect middle 90s for highs. If the sun does a good enough job drying up the ground moisture from all the rain we had last weekend, we’ll more likely have highs in the UPPER 90s!
With all the heat we expect, we’ll need some rain. Tonight on Channel 4 News at 10pm, Lisa Spencer will discuss when showers and thunderstorms will return to the Mid State.
