After almost a week of vacation, I am back home in Nashville…welcomed by the heat and humidity. I must say I enjoyed my little break from the brand of summer in the High Country of North Carolina. There were rainy days, but the highs barely reached 80 degrees and the humidity was lower.
Soon, we will have a little break from the heat and humidity right here in Middle Tennessee, next week a front will likely bring in some cooler and drier air.
Until we get there, we will have some rain and a few thunderstorms in the forecast. Tomorrow a stalled front to the west will start to move eastward. This will increase the chance of rain tomorrow and even more so on Wednesday. Temperatures should stay in the mid to upper 80s with the greater rain chances.
Right now this system is responsible for the flooding rain that has created disastrous conditions in Louisiana. We are not expecting flooding rain here, but it’s a good idea to keep the wet weather gear nearby as scattered rain and thunderstorms will be in the forecast through the first half of the weekend.
Sunday a front passes by and that opens the gate for the cooler air. There will be little chance or rain, the dew points will be lower and the highs will be in the low 80s. A nice preview of fall.
It will make for “a beautiful day in the neighborhood”. And with those words in mind, here’s a fun fact for you: Asteroid 26857 Mister Rogers makes its closest approach to Earth only a mere 174 million miles from your neighborhood tomorrow. That is according to some of my friends at NASA.
Join me for a weather update tonight on Channel 4 News after the Olympics.
