September 5: Hot Week Ahead

Labor Day represents the unofficial “end of summer” for a lot of people, but the summer-like temperatures don’t appear to care about that.  We’ll top 90 degrees in most spots around the Midstate this afternoon:
The humidity won’t be dreadful today, but it will be more noticeable, with dew points in the 60s:
That could be worse on the muggy meter, but it’s still a higher level of humidity compared to what we enjoyed Friday and Saturday, when dew points were in the 50s:
Just a very slight shower chance today, in the higher terrain of eastern Middle Tennessee.  The HRRR model’s radar simulation shows a few blink-and-you’ll-miss-’em blips:

Really not much change to the forecast for the next several days — high temperatures will reach the low 90s, just a slight storm chance each day, with generally muggy conditions.  It’s not a return to July/August humidity levels, but it still won’t be pleasant:
7 Day PM
At this point, it looks like a cold front will move through the Midstate on Saturday, bringing a better chance of scattered storms.  Behind that front, we won’t experience any truly autumnal air, but the humidity should at least be lower for the Titans’ opener against the Vikings on Sunday.
