Though temperatures today are a bit cooler, the high humidity is making things feel just as hot. Below is the heat index forecast for this afternoon site-wide. Parts of Western Tennessee could be as high as 110 before days end.
Looking ahead, our best chance of rain comes Sunday. As a system works through, we'll see widespread shower and storm chance on Sunday afternoon. This will provide cooler temperatures as well with highs to be in the low to mid 80s. Cooler temperatures (mid 80s) will continue into early next week as well.
Overall rain totals for the next 7 days looks minimal. The bulk of precipitation will be to our west with an average of 0.25-0.5" expected across East Tennessee. This could add to the drought conditions seen statewide, so we'll keep a close eye on any changes in the weeks ahead.
Another warm and muggy one is on tap for Saturday before a chance for showers & storms cools things down Sunday and into next week. Have a good weekend!
