Very warm and muggy today. The afternoon high reached 84°, 10 degrees above average. The low this morning was a muggy 70°. This does not sound a thing like fall in Middle Tennessee.
There is not much change coming this week. An area of low pressure will move in and bring a few showers and thunderstorms overnight and especially tomorrow afternoon. This is not going to be a widespread severe weather event, but folks in the northwest corner of Middle Tennessee into northern West Tennessee could get a strong storm or two. The Marginal Risk zone does not include out viewing area with the exception of a few southwest Kentucky Counties.
The rain and storms are not expected to begin until after midnight. Here’s the latest futurecast depiction:
Some showers will likely linger into early Wednesday morning. Some clearing is likely in the afternoon, the afternoon highs will be a little lower in the upper 70s. Temperatures will slowly warm to the mid 80s by the weekend.
Another tropical storm has formed in the Atlantic Ocean. Ophelia is likely to strengthen but it is a long way from land. The forecast does not bring in toward the U.S.
I’ll have an update News 4 at 10pm.
