Triple digits, muggy, exhausting heat and soupy! Whew! These words have made quite a presence in our top weather headlines during the entire month of June. Well, today was no exception. Yes I know, just like a broken record. 92° was our high for today it felt more like the triple digits due to the stick factor.
Thankfully there is always good news with a light ahead in the weather department. It is time for a relief. Temperatures take a mini chill in the week ahead. Our seasonal average for late June is 88° and we’ll be right around there.
This temp relief comes at the cost of showers and thunderstorms with an approaching cold front currently over southeastern Michigan extending through Illinois, Missouri and Oklahoma. The system is expected to push through middle Tennessee late tonight into Monday morning. The initial batch of shower and storm activity is expected to knock on our door right around mid to late morning, so our early morning commuters should make it to work rain-drop free. Nice.
Do not forget to grab the umbrella as you head out the door! Shower and storm activity will keep us company for most of the day before tapering off right after dinner hour. Check out your Futurecast.
Besides an isolated afternoon thunderstorm on Tuesday, expect a much drier stretch of weather through Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Now we are getting spoiled (SMILE). Patience pays off and it is well deserved!
