Today’s Tennessee Weather
It’s a hot and humid Tuesday in Tennessee! Look for afternoon highs to top out around 90 degrees statewide. A few of us will dodge a shower or storm today, as there is about a 30% chance for a heat-of-the-day shower or thunderstorm.
Tonight’s Tennessee Weather
Skies should be clear to partly cloudy overnight. Muggy overnight lows will range from the mid 70s across the western end of the date, to the mid 60s across the eastern end of the state.
Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather
We’re in for a scorcher on Wednesday and this time any relief from a shower or storm looks very unlikely. Be safe in that heat! Afternoon highs will top out in the low to mid 90s, with our cities likely reaching 95 degrees.
The drought monitor is updated each Thursday.
Rob Hoff (@robhoffimagery) took this incredible photo at the Garden of the Gods in Colorado. Rob commented, “I’ve been trying to get a bolt here all summer, with many of the storms lacking any lightning at all and others just putting down at the wrong time or place. Today, I finally got the shot.” You sure did, Rob, and we sure are glad you did!
