Staying out of the 90s

Umbrellas popping up  and windshield wipers swishing today as showers and thunderstorms developed this afternoon.  The rain has been very spotty as expected. Clouds and showers helped keep the temperatures down again today, high 88, that’s 2° below the average high.

This evening some slow moving showers and thunderstorms remain across the Mid State.  An Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory has been issued for the following counties Overton, SE DeKalb, NW Van Buren, NE Warren, White, Putman and Fentress until 8pm. The same kind of warning is also in effect until 9:15pm for S Dickson and NE Hickman Counties.


Radar at 7:15 pm

Tomorrow will be similar to today with more spotty showers and thunderstorms especially during the afternoon. Again the afternoon high will be in the upper 80s. Here’s the latest Futurecast depiction.

Friday is when things get going with thunderstorms.  A summer front will move into Middle Tennessee with triggering more widespread rain and thunderstorms.  The Storm Predication Center has put Middle Tennessee under a “marginal risk” zone, that’s a one on the 1-5 scale. So basically some of those storms could be strong.


The timing should work well for Friday night date night as it looks like the front will move through early enough to leave the evening dry.

Saturday looks great with sunshine, cooler temperatures and lower humidity. Sunday a few showers will return late in the day.


I’ll have an update on News 4 at 10pm.
