Aug. 14: Hot and Dry Pattern Ending

One more really hot day before some more significant rain relief returns. Today in Nashville the high reached 92°. Tomorrow will be even hotter.  An approaching front is bringing increasing cloud cover, but most of the area will remain dry tonight.  A few showers are likely to the west along the Tennessee River. This morning the low slipped to a refreshing 65° but tonight won’t be as cool, lows will be in the low 70s. It should be a great night for the Sounds game and the Cheatham County Fair.

Tomorrow’s big weather story will be the heat!  Expect highs in the low-mid 90s.  A few more showers and thunderstorms will be possible, primarily northwest of Nashville. Here is the latest Futurecast timing.

On Thursday, a storm or two could become strong to severe.  Much of Middle Tennessee is under a “slight risk” for severe weather. That is 1 on a 1 to 5 scale. The greatest threat will be damaging wind.


This will bring temperatures down some with highs in the upper 80s to end the week.

The weekend will be hot and humid, with spotty showers and thunderstorms each day.
