Today’s Tennessee Weather
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will keep high temperatures in the mid to upper 80s across the state. Some of the storms today could produce heavy rainfall and deadly cloud-to-ground lightning. Be safe if you plan to be outside.
Tonight’s Tennessee Weather
Showers and thunderstorms dissipate while moving eastward overnight. High humidity levels will keep overnight lows in the 70s.
Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather
Tuesday’s heat and humidity will lead to some afternoon showers and thunderstorms for some of us. That rain chance increases from west to east, with a 30% chance across West Tennessee, increasing to about 50% for East Tennessee. Afternoon highs will top out around 90 degrees, though high humidity levels will make it feel even warmer.
The drought monitor is updated each Thursday.
