A breathe of fresh air across Middle Tennessee! We woke up to 58 degrees in Nashville and Mother Nature’s beauty took off from there.
My commute to Overton High School proves it! I had the chance to speak to the middle school STEM campers. We talked about the upcoming total solar eclipse, severe weather and the green screen at our Channel 4 studio. Just the sweetest bunch.
Thank you all for having me!
Here’s a radar update (3:31 pm as I write here)…smooth sailing and rain drop-free.
Temperatures are running anywhere from the lower 70s along the Cumberland Plateau to the upper 70/lower 80-degree range for all elsewhere.
Here’s the key to WHY it feels so nice! Dew points are the best indicator to measure moisture in the atmosphere and we are reading low to mid-50s area-wide.
Checking in with our “Muggy Meter,” that is a refreshing and humid-free place to be.
The good news….drum roll please.
This muggy-free trend carries on into tomorrow and the next day and the next! By Sunday you’ll start to notice humidity creeping back in and early next week will be a noticeable difference.
This pleasant weather is all thanks to a large dome of high pressure. Check it out on satellite imagery (a view from space). Clouds are will to our south and east while we see clear skies…
Besides a very slight chance for an afternoon pop up shower or two for areas across eastern Middle Tennessee, expect a dry Thursday!
The only change going into the weekend looks to be the return of heat! Upper 80s roll in on Saturday before lower 90s sneak in on Sunday into Monday. If you do plan on enjoying the pool or grilling out, a friendly reminder to drink plenty of water (even if you are not thirsty), take air conditioning breaks and plan on leaving your furry friend inside your home when you run errands….not inside the car.
Our next chance for just a few showers & storms hold off until early next week. We’re talking a 20-30% chance. So not a washout by any means!
Meteorologist Dan Thomas will have updates on your weekend forecast at 4 & 6:30. Chief Meteorologist Lisa Spencer will have the big game 5 Preds forecast for tomorrows game coming up at 5, 6 and 10!
