A Weather Treat Across Middle Tennessee

A refreshing start to our Monday morning! Noticeably cooler and delightful sunshine.


Definitely a day for the shades.

Check out our AM temps. 62° is average for this time of year and every number is running below…


Mainly clear skies behind a passing cold front is the reason for the cooler temperatures as well as the crisp touch to the air. Dew points are best indicator of how much moisture is in the atmosphere and they have dropped considerably, into the lower 50s…

Plenty of sunshine will aid in heating things up quickly today. In fact, back to unseasonably hot. Quite a difference when comparing the below average temperatures to start the day.


Expect these numbers to look very similar each day this week. The only change? Humidity returns by late morning tomorrow…


So while highs are expected to be in the upper 80s both days, here’s the difference on what it will actually feel like…

See the difference? That’s why the dew point temperature is a key player.

Rain chances are not very high this week.


Isolated storms can be expected during the afternoon starting on Tuesday, lasting through Thursday. A slightly better chance arrives with an upper level disturbance on Friday (30%) but the best chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms will be with an approaching cold front on the weekend. This will aid in dropping highs back to average, into the lower 80s both on Saturday and on Sunday.

Meteorologist Dan Thomas will go further in depth with the seven days ahead on channel 4 at noon today. Chief meteorologist Lisa Spencer will be with you tonight at 5, 6 and 10. Paul Heggen will be back bright and early on Tuesday morning at 4.


Have a wonderful day!
