NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – One final day of blazing hot temperatures and heat indices across the Mid-State. Most counties remain under Excessive Heat Warning until 12 AM Saturday.
Excessive Heat Warning & Heat Advisory
FACT: This is Middle Tennessee’s first Excessive Heat Warning since Summer 2011. The last time Nashville-Davidson County was under an Excessive Heat Warning was August 2010.
If you are working or playing outdoors, please take plenty of breaks in the shade or air conditioning and drink plenty of water. Check on the elderly often, and protect children and pets.
A Heat Advisory has been issued for Decatur County from midnight tonight through 1am Sunday. Saturday during the day it could feel like 100-105 in this area.
Brief heat relief this weekend
A cold front is headed our way, and will bring in lower humidity by Sunday. The front though will have a lot of moisture and fuel to work with, thus giving us more storm chances Friday through Saturday evening.
As storms develop overnight Friday into Saturday, they may turn severe with wind, hail, and heavy rain. There is a very low chance of a tornado in Southern KY.
More storms are possible Saturday, but the strength will be determined by the storms seen early Saturday morning.
