Summer continues here in Middle Tennessee. Upper ridge continues to
bring the heat across the area. This trend will continue over the
next several days with highs mostly in the 90s and lows in the 70s.
Along with the warm temperatures, dew points look like they will
stay in the 70s. The upper level ridge does weaken a little by
Tuesday into Wednesday equating to temperatures a degree or two

Coverage in scattered showers and thunderstorms should be greater the
next couple of days relative to yesterday. The west should be favored
today in coverage with a little deeper moisture in place. A strong
storm with gusty winds can`t be completely ruled out. Into next
week, isolated diurnal, summertime showers and storms will be the

We are still watching the tropics to see what the area of interest
near Cuba will do over the next several days. The Euro keeps the
system rather weak and takes it up the west coast of FL and then
swings it northeast. The GFS has a rather creative solution keeping
the disturbance weak and making initial landfall near the AL/MS
coastline before drifting east along the Gulf Coast and
strengthening. Either solution would not impact our weather here
in Middle TN. The Euro has been more consistent with the track over
the last couple of days, but looking at spaghetti plots a couple of
models want to bring it into the Gulf Coast. It will be worth
keeping an eye on regardless.



Foggy conditions have developed in Middle Tennessee reducing
visibilities down to 1/2 statue mile at Clarksville with vertical
visibilities around two hundred feet. Conditions at Nashville and
Crossville not as bad but bouncing between ifr and mvfr due to
fog. I think we will see conditions improving rather quickly to vfr
between 13z and 14z.
