The high reached 95 degrees in Nashville today. More heat and humidity are likely tomorrow. The surface ridge is moving east, that equals more of a southerly flow returning. That flow from the south in turn brings warmer temperatures and an increase in humidity.
With addition of moisture comes a chance of rain. Counties across the south are most likely to get the rain. Even the folks at Bonnaroo on the Farm in Manchester got some rain. More isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible Sunday and Monday.
The Air Quality Alert has been extended through Sunday. It’s a code orange alert meaning the air will be unhealthy for folks with breathing problems. If that is you, stay inside especially during the hottest part of the day.
By Tuesday a trough of low pressure will bring a greater chance of showers and thunderstorms. It will still be in the low 90s though.
Wednesday weather forecast models are indicating a front will pass through with again an enhanced chance of rain and t’storms. However, it won’t do much for the temperatures, They will still be quite hot, near 90.
By next weekend, a more significant system will move south from the Midwest and Ohio Valley this will finally bring the temperatures back down to the mid 80s. Of course this also means on and off rain is in the forecast for most of next week.
I’ll have an update on Channel 4 News at 10pm.
