We've definitely turned a corner away from our blazing hot temperatures and expect this trend to continue over the next seven days. Highs today (Wednesday) are expected around 90° with only about a 20% chance of thunderstorms. Speaking of thunderstorms, they've been in the forecast for the last several days and we've mainly struck out other than a bit of rain this past Friday and Saturday. Most all of Tennessee struck out on Tuesday as very little rain was noted across the state.
THE WEEK AHEAD:
Looking at the rest of the week, we'll see highs mainly in the 80's and lows mainly in the 60's with only a slight chance for rainfall. While these temps will probably feel a little cool to us, they are near our seasonable average!
