July 25: Better Storm Chances Ahead, Daily Links

WEATHER

Let’s start with some good news: higher storm chances later this week will give us some relief from the heat!  “Relief” is relative, of course…this time of year, if we stay in the upper 80s, it’s an unseasonably cool day.  Before those higher storm chances arrive though, we’re still in for another couple of days of sweltering weather.  Yesterday’s high temperature in Nashville was 96, and we’ll be around that level again today:
MONDAY HIGHS
Factor in the humidity, and indices will likely be over 100:

Spotty storms are possible today, but not terribly likely — the HRRR forecast model shows a few blips on the radar simulation, but it looks like the best rain chances will stay off to our north today:

The unsettled pattern to our north will drop down closer to us the rest of the week.  It won’t happen all at once, but we’ll see better and better storm chances on a daily basis.  Tomorrow’s rain chance isn’t anything to get too excited about yet, but it’s a better opportunity to feel some rain-cooled air in the afternoon:

The best chance of thunderstorms looks like it will shape up Thursday and Friday — our severe weather potential doesn’t look very impressive at this point, but we’ll be able to get a better idea about that later this week:
