More Heat and Humidity

We hit the mark today, 95°, the hottest it’s been this year. The average for this date of the year is 89°.  It reached 94° on June 14th.  More heat is on the way this week along with humidity.

WSMV Almanac

Tomorrow the humidity will start to increase.  It will feel hotter as a result.  93 will feel like 98 degrees. With the increase in humidity, isolated thunderstorms will be likely across the area.

Lisa What to Expect

Here’s the Futurecast depiction of the isolated thunderstorms for tomorrow.  The chance is greatest in the afternoon.

The ridge of high pressure will start to weaken by Thursday increasing the chance of rain to spotty showers as a disturbance moves in from the northwest.

A weak front, now across the Ohio Valley, will drift southward into the warm moist airmass.  That will bring more rain and some thunderstorms to Middle Tennessee on Friday. Some of those storms could be strong. That rain will linger into the first part of Saturday, but it does look like drier air could move in Saturday night. That means this weekend will not be a washout, but it will be hot.  The pool and lake will be popular.

I end the blog tonight with a recent photo of Lucy and Lyla. It is All American Pet Photo Day…so here they are.
