Keep this chart in mind throughout the summer when we talk about dew points with humidity. Anything over 60 is noticeable, anything over 70 makes things difficult.

No rain is expected today or tonight. Tonight, our temperature drops to 68 degrees under mostly clear skies. Winds will calm overnight as well.

Thursday brings a minor chance of rain.

A chance of afternoon showers return Thursday with a 20% chance of rain thanks to an approaching surface low. Our high temperature will climb to about 90 degrees. Winds will be coming out of the south at 5mph bringing in warm moist air for the low pressure system to work with.

The chance of rain is 20% because there are pop up showers expected with the heat of the day. Here’s NAM4’s simulated radar showing small pop showers throughout Middle Tennessee at 4pm tomorrow.
