Storms, Building Heat, & Watching the Caribbean

Lots going on in our weather this week!  We’ll have scattered storms today, then building heat, to be followed by moisture that will arrive from the western Caribbean Sea that will increase our rain chance for the upcoming holiday weekend.

Outdoors as of 5am, temperatures are in the 60s.  It’s muggy too, but not oppressive.

Outside of a few light showers on the Cumberland Plateau, it’s dry.


Later today, scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop, primarily along and east of I-65.  That’s different from yesterday, when they popped up along and west of I-65.

Check out how FUTURECAST is handling the rain development today.  Notice that like the last several days, the bulk of the storms will happen between 1pm and 7pm.

Tomorrow, the chance for showers diminishes quite a bit and pushes down over far southern/southeastern Middle Tennessee.

As that happens, it’ll turn even hotter.  Tomorrow through Friday we’ll have highs in the upper 80s and low 90s.

Thursday will be dry.  Then, by Friday afternoon, we’ll be watching moisture begin to return from a cluster of clouds currently down over the Caribbean Sea.


As that systems pushes northward and begins to move into our area, we’ll have a better chance for scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms.  That increased rain chance will linger through the weekend, into the middle of next week.
