The extremely hot summer temperatures are expected to remain in the forecast at least though Tuesday.
On Thursday, temperatures are expected to soar to 100 degrees by the late afternoon in the Nashville area.
By Thursday evening, temperatures will drop to 70 before reaching above 100 degrees on Friday.
The triple digits are expected to remain in the forecast through Sunday, with the humidity beginning to play a factor in the temperatures by the weekend and into next week.
Due to the heat and extremely dry conditions, some Mid-State cities including Clarksville, La Vergne and Murfreesboro, among others have issued burn bans.
Officials are also warning those who will be out in the hot summer conditions to take precautions such as drinking fluids to stay hydrated and wear light-colored, loose fitting clothing.
Metro's Office of Emergency Management has coordinated with government and non-government entities to open cooling stations to ensure residents have a place to go in anticipation of the extreme heat.
Several cooling stations are open to the public to help provide relief from the heat.
On Saturday and Sunday, during regular operating hours, all golf course club houses are available for anyone that needs to cool off.
Beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday until 8 p.m. and Sunday from Noon until 8 p.m. the Sportsplex will be open for cooling.
Also on Saturday until 8 p.m. and on Sunday from Noon until 8 p.m., the Regional Centers will be open for cooling only. Officials said outside of regular operating hours, the centers will only be used for cooling stations.
Beginning Thursday, the Salvation Army is providing a water station under the Jefferson Street Bridge for the homeless community.
The non-profit organization plans to continue to provide the water station anytime the temperature reaches 100 degrees or higher, or if a heat advisory is issued.
The Nashville Rescue Mission is also serving as a cooling station to those in need.
