June 28: Back To Summer, Daily Links


The cooler-than-normal weather of the last several days is coming to an end, as the heat returns today and the humidity returns tomorrow.  Hey, you knew it was going to happen eventually, right?

Partly cloudy skies today with high temperatures near 90° this afternoon:

The humidity won’t be bad yet today, though!  It would be nice to keep this kind of weather around for the rest of the summer…

Back up to around 90° again on Thursday:

Dew points will climb near 70° tomorrow — while that won’t quite be a return to Tropical Storm Cindy levels of humidity, it is significantly higher on the “Muggy Meter”:

That’s also enough mugginess to produce an isolated storm chance — the best chance will be in the higher terrain of eastern Middle Tennessee:

Spotty storms possible again on Friday — I waffled back-and-forth between putting a 30% or 40% storm chance in the forecast, but I’ll stick with 30% for now.

It’s almost impossible to pin down the specific timing and placement of our summertime pop-up storms…which, I realize, is frustrating.

A better-than-50/50 chance of scattered thunderstorms heads our way on Saturday — beginning tomorrow, we’ll start to get a better look at the timing of those storms so you can adjust your outdoor plans accordingly.

We’ll get back to our typical summertime 20%-40% storm chance Sunday through Tuesday, with highs around or above 90° throughout the Fourth of July weekend:
