Searing Heat….then a Soggy Middle of the Week

Spotty thunderstorms are likely today and tomorrow.  Thereafter, our chance for rain goes up sharply.

Outdoors as of 2pm today, it was very hot!

With high humidity, the heat index was topping 100 in a few communities!

Real Time Red (Nashville’s only live radar) showed spotty showers and storms developing.  Movement of all of them was toward the east-northeast.

There’s nothing supporting today’s rain other than the sun-induced heat.  SO, once the sun goes down, they’ll dissipate quickly this evening.  Take a look at FUTURECAST.

It’ll be mainly dry overnight, with lows in the low 70s in most areas.

Highs tomorrow won’t be in record territory, but they’ll be attention getting!

FUTURECAST for tomorrow looks a lot like today’s.

Notice the weather system over the nation’s heartland.  That’s our next weather maker. It’ll send showers and storms into Middle Tennessee from the northwest Tuesday night.  Scattered rain and storms will linger into Wednesday and Thursday.
