Sizzling heat! It’s the kind that makes you want to blast the air conditioning and keep the mister spray fans up and ready to go before you step outside. Temperatures in the upper 90s have felt more like the triple digits and daytime highs are only expected to increase in the days ahead.
In fact, a Heat Advisory is in effect for our northern counties in southern Kentucky, in effect through 7 pm on Friday. Temperatures in the upper 90s will combine with high humidity values to pull in dangerous heat index values between 105 and 110. Ouch!
Here’s a few friendly reminders:
Dan Thomas put together a very handy graphic which shows the days of above average temperatures expected this month. With all of the red, you can see, A LOT!
Isolated to scattered thunderstorms have been the trend so far today but anything on the radar is in the midst of diminishing. If you’re heading out in the town, just expect a hot and muggy evening ahead.
Well, with a firm grip of high pressure in place, there’s not a whole lot of rain expected in the days ahead. The lack of rain will not help the current drought situation for central and southern Middle Tennessee. Check it out below…
Our next better chance of shower and storm activity will hold off until an approaching front arrives by Monday and Tuesday of your next workweek.
As always your 4WARN weather team will keep you posted with updates as they come in.
Chief Meteorologist will have the full breakdown on this heat and best storm chances on Channel 4 at 10pm tonight. Be sure to tune in!
