The name of the game this work week is the heat and humidity we will have to endure, with the very little rain chances not helping much at all. Today, the temperatures look to reach the 95º mark in Nashville, but the heat index will put the feel like temp. close, if not over the century point. Our next big rain chance (30-40% in late July and into all of August is BIG for us) comes Weds. night into Thursday morning and those chances are at 30%, so everyone won't see rain those two days. And tomorrow only looks hotter and drier with the temps. getting well past the mid 90's (I'm forecasting 97ºF for Nashville with Heat Index close to 105ºF) and Heat Index's getting over 100 in most spots. We will come very close at a Excessive Heat Watch day I believe. Here's today forecasted high's and heat index numbers you can expect.
Nashville: mid 90's; Heat Index close to 100ºF
Clarksville: low to mid 90's; Heat Index close to 99ºF
Cookeville: upper 80's to low 90's; Heat Index close to 96ºF
Columbia: mid 90's; Heat Index close to 100ºF
Manchester: low to mid 90's; Heat Index close to 98-99ºF
