Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Middle Tennessee
National Weather Service Nashville TN
343 AM CDT Sun Jul 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...

The upper level ridge that has caused a heatwave across the region
will weaken today and a weak front will approach. This will mean one
more day with heat index values at dangerous levels, then scattered
thunderstorms late today, tonight, and Monday. It will still be hot
and humid after the front, but not at the dangerous levels we have
seen the past few days.

Isolated thunderstorms will be possible Tuesday and Wednesday, then
another pretty good chance for storms will develop late week with
the approach of another front.
