Beautiful morning to start the day, but unfortunately, it'll be yet another toasty one. High's will warm up into the lower 90's for most along with mostly sunny skies.
Analyzing the latest surface map, we see a high pressure system sitting into portions of west Tennessee and Arkansas. This will continue to keep us warm and sunny as we get into your Wednesday, too.
A glimpse of good news is on the horizon, though, as a cold front will be moving in from our north and west late Wednesday and into Thursday. This front, which you can faintly make out associated with that line of showers in northern Kentucky, will push through bringing much cooler and drier conditions Thursday. As we get back into Friday and the weekend, another ridge will move in increasing the temperatures and humidity once more. Rain chances will be held at bay until at least early next week.
The latest on Hurricane Dorian remains much of the same. As of this morning, there has been some slight movement to the north and as the day grows on, the NHC (National Hurricane Center) is expecting Dorian to follow the upper level trough (described in the video below). Later this week many will be eyeing the chance for landfall somewhere in the Carolina's, so we will keep you up to date. As for East Tennessee, Dorian won't effect us. In fact, it will draw in drier air later this week from our north, while much more humid air will stay to our east (associated with the hurricane).
That's all we have today, so stay cool and remember to hydrate as "norms" for this time of the year are around the mid 80's mark. Thursday we will get a glimpse of Fall with much drier and cooler air, but we will warm back up this weekend. Check out our newest content below!
