Very Hot Weekend Ahead

**Weekend Outlook**
Temperatures have risen quickly this morning across Tennessee. At 8 a.m. (CDT), we were already at 80°, while most locations in and around Nashville were in the lower 80's. Expect highs to reach well into the middle 90's for much of Middle Tennessee and low 90's for the Highland Rim over to the Cumberland Plateau. There is a slight chance for a pop-up shower or thunderstorm this afternoon.  For Sunday, much of the same with a great chance for rain (around 40%).

Heat Advisory in effect for counties west of Nashville where heat index readings will run 105-107°. I expect our heat index readings to reach around 100°.
