Dangerous Heat Spills into Middle Tennessee

My my. How about that for a Friday morning sunrise? Just breath taking.


Radar update (7:53 AM Friday) gets a two thumbs up as well. Smooth sailing and rain-free in Middle Tennessee, just in time for our morning commute to work and school…


Besides an isolated thundershower this afternoon, I expect a mainly day today. My main concern is in the temperature department.


Highs will climb into the middle 90s but factoring in high humidity values, it will feel more like the triple digits…

Another bright side? Some areas across Middle Tennessee can really use the rain, southern Middle Tennessee specifically. A good chunk still remains under a severe drought, indicated by the orange colors. Check it out…


Clouds, showers and storms will combine to bring some relief from the heat. Seasonable upper 80s to lower 90s will take over through the weekend, lasting into most of next week.


I have the full break down of the next seven days ahead, on channel 4 at noon!

Have a wonderful day!
