Turning up the Heat Across Middle Tennessee

After a rainy weekend, things simmer down quite a bit but enough moisture behind a passing cold front keeps the clouds hanging around Middle Tennessee.

This has kept temperatures steady, anywhere from the low 70s to the low 80-degree range.

That thick deck of cloud cover will decrease as we head into the overnight hours and this will do a couple of things:

  1. lead to the development of patchy fog for our morning commute and
  2. drop temperatures a bit from the 71 we woke up to this morning. I’m calling for 66 for an overnight low.

Though Middle Tennessee is finally dry, it still feels very soupy out there. Dew points are way high on the muggy meter, in the upper 60s to lower 70s…

The end is near. By tomorrow afternoon, humidity will be more tolerable as dew points drop into the lower 60s…

With high pressure settling in, this upcoming week will be a stretch of beauty…

BUT…sizzling hot! In just this month, Middle Tennessee has had eleven above 90 degree days. Just to give you an idea, the average high for this time of the year is 82. We’ll start with upper 80s on Monday…

Since humidity is not bad, it will actually feel like the upper 80s…

Lower 90s take over by Wednesday through Friday. The bright side? It will be nice and dry for any outdoor plans.

A peak at the 7-Day and what I’ll be going into depth with on channel 4 at 10 (or a little later due to football delays).

Be sure to join Paul Heggen bright and early at 4 AM, for an update on the morning commute and areas of fog.

Make it a great week!
