NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Yesterday Clarksville reached 100° or higher for the 8th day this year, and Nashville hit 90 or above for the 49th day, which ties the average number of 90-degree or higher days for a calendar year (and with August to come).
Another Heat Advisory is in effect for Sunday, generally for the western half of Middle TN and south KY.
It’s not to say that it won’t be hot and humid in our eastern areas, but the threshold of a heat index of 105° or higher may not be reached there.
If working or playing outside, please take plenty of breaks in the shade or air conditioning and drink plenty of water. Keep an eye on kids and pets and check on the elderly.
Scattered storm chances return for most of the area on Monday, and will continue off and on through the workweek, holding highs down to the low to mid-90s with storms dropping temperatures after they break out.
A few strong storms may be in the mix Monday and Tuesday with damaging winds being the main threat. Marginal risks (1/5) are in effect for both days.
