Not As Hot, Isolated Thunderstorms

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.

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!
