Good morning! Safe to say, we have been blessed with incredible sunrises each and every day so far this week. An array of pinks and dark purples under a clear sky this time.

Not even one rain drop to point out. Today will be similar to yesterday, another toasty one. Highs will run about ten degrees above average, but it will FEEL more like the upper 90s all thanks to increasing dew point values in the upper 60 to lower 70-degree range…

High pressure keeps us mainly dry today. Due to the increase in humidity and heat, I’m not ruling out the slightest chance for an isolated thundershower for our western counties, but I expect most of Middle Tennessee to remain rain-free. Here’s where the weather makes makes a U-turn…

A cold front stretching from Michigan south into Kansas will shift southeastward into Tennessee by Saturday. This will fuel scattered showers and thunderstorm during the day, diminishing by night. This GOOD news! It will significantly help  in the temperature and humidity department. A much drier and cooler air mass works its way in behind the front. Double score.

Passing showers and storms are possible towards the beginning of the event but expected to diminish by around 6 pm. Temperatures will be comfortably warm in the lower 80s mid-event before upper 70s wrap things up.

Here’s a peak at your extended forecast and what I’ll be diving into at noon on channel 4 today.
