June 9: Here Comes The Heat, Daily Links

WEATHER

The forecast data has been remarkably consistent this week, both in terms of the comfortable weather over the past few days AND the upcoming heat wave this weekend.  The Festival Forecast looks pretty much the same today as it did 24 hours ago:
PAUL CMA 4 DAY
That forecast applies for both Nashville and Manchester — any temperature difference between the two locations looks to be negligible.

One more “comfortably warm” day today, with low humidity and a light northeasterly breezy to go along with abundant sunshine.  Temperatures will be a few degrees warmer than yesterday, but still at least close to normal for this time of year:
THURSDAY HIGHS
The hour-by-hour forecast doesn’t look too bad, especially if you’ll be at Nissan Stadium this evening for the first official night of CMA Fest:
PAUL CMA 1 PAUL CMA 2

The heat arrives tomorrow, but at least the humidity won’t be too bad…yet:
FRIDAY HIGHS

The heat will stick around through the weekend.  Forecast highs through early next week are only 2-3 degrees off the daily record high temperatures:
PAUL HEAT WAVE
The mugginess will be climbing on Saturday, and “air you can wear” will be entrenched by Sunday.  Heat index values will likely be in the 100-102 range both Saturday and Sunday afternoons — plan on staying well-hydrated, and find some A/C whenever you can!

The higher humidity Sunday will yield at least some rain chance, but it looks like 20% is the best we can do.  A better chance of pop-up afternoon thunderstorms will develop Monday and Tuesday, but the best chance of rain looks like it will arrive Tuesday night and Wednesday:
WSMV 7 Day AM
That’s a LONG way off in the weather forecasting world, so there will undoubtedly be some adjustments to the forecast in that time frame.  Stay tuned…
