Smoke continues to fill the skies today as large wildfires continue to hit the Western US and Canada hard. This could create some health-related problems for some, so stay abreast to any alerts that are issued.
After a fairly wet summer thus far, the end of July looks to be both warmer and much drier. Looking at the latest release from the CPC, most of the USA should expect above average temperatures. We will see that beginning this week as highs today and through early next week will be in the low (& for some) mid 90s. Precipitation will also be below average with parts of the West expected to be above the norm (much needed).
As a front fades out to our south, mostly sunny skies can be expected across the Volunteer state. An isolated shower can't be entirely ruled out across the TN/GA/AL border, otherwise dry and hazy at times. This will be the trend again for Thursday before isolated afternoon pop-up showers/storms find us Friday and through the weekend.
Keep your heat safety in mind. Not only will temperatures be hot but muggy conditions will make it feel that much warmer. In fact, some could find feel-like temps near the triple digit mark this weekend.
