Hot and Humid Weather Through the End of August
Weather Update – 10:30 p.m. – Monday, August 27th
Isolated showers were showing up around West Tennessee today but very few if any have had any significant rainfall – it’s still been dry lately in the area. This is exactly the kind of scenario that will play out tomorrow too with rain chances remaining low this week. We’ll likely close out the month with below average amounts of rainfall for August, unless Wednesday and Thursday double our rainfall totals for the month so far, and that’s not impossible!
After another hot and humid afternoon, we’ll get another mild and muggy night! Under mostly clear skies, temperatures will drop to the lower and middle 70s by Tuesday morning.
Expect another hot and humid afternoon tomorrow with highs in the lower 90s under mostly sunny skies. A stray shower or thunderstorm is possible with a 20% chance for rain in West Tennessee but you might be hoping for rain with a heat index of 103°F tomorrow afternoon. Rain chances will increase Wednesday evening into Thursday with a more likely potential for widespread showers bringing an end to the dry stretch we’ve had lately. Some models suggest over 1.5″ of rain in some areas but 0.50″ to 1″ with isolated totals of 1″-1.5″ looks more likely.
