May 16: Heat Wave Continues, Daily Links


The mid-May heat wave continues, with near-record high temperatures in the forecast today and again tomorrow.  Lots of sunshine and just a few fair-weather clouds today, with high temperatures just above 90° in Nashville, upper 80s outside the “urban heat island”:

A few more clouds on Wednesday, but we’ll still make it up to right around 90°:

The humidity increases slightly tomorrow, but it will be much more noticeable (and unpleasant) on Thursday:

Not only will it be sticky, but the mugginess also means a slight chance of a few afternoon storms on Thursday.  A better chance of scattered storms on Friday, then the first half of the weekend is looking mostly dry but hot:

Scattered showers and storms are more likely by Sunday and Monday, which will bring an end to the worst of the heat.
