July 7: Improving Weather, Daily Links


A warm and muggy evening will give way to a chance of showers and storms overnight, but most of the activity will be weakening as it moves in.  The HRRR model’s radar simulation shows the diminishing trend throughout the night:

The Storm Prediction Center has included us in a “Marginal Risk” (level 1 of 5) of severe thunderstorms tonight, but I’m not terribly concerned at this point:

Still a few showers possible Saturday, mainly to the east and southeast of Nashville:

High temperatures tomorrow will reach the upper 80s:

Here’s the good news — the humidity will gradually drop throughout the weekend!  Dew points will be in the low 60s by Saturday afternoon, and down to the 50s on Sunday…much better territory to occupy on the “muggy meter”:

Sunday’s highs again top out in the upper 80s:

The mugginess gradually creeps back into the forecast next week, and temperatures will reach the low 90s…the increase in humidity also means a slow increase in storm chances:

I’ll be tracking tonight’s approaching showers and storms tonight on Channel 4 News at 10:00 — see you then!
