Notice that cluster of clouds along the IN/KY border? That’s a little bundle of energy that’ll push southward into the Mid State around dinnertime tonight, helping to fire spotty showers and thunderstorms here.
FUTURECAST shows reasonable timing and placement for storms today & tonight.

For the tens of thousands of people going to the Kenny Chesney concert at Nissan Stadium tonight, it’ll be hot initially with the chance for some cooling showers sliding through. Hopefully storms avoid downtown Nashville though. There WILL be some in the area.
Late tonight, don’t miss the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower! It’s actually tonight and tomorrow night. Conditions will be best during the wee hours of the morning. Just put yourself in an area away from lights and look up in a broad area of the sky. Use your peripheral vision to take in as much of the sky as possible. If you’re out in the country in the darkest of surroundings you could see as many as 50-60 per hour!
