Heat advisories continue today for West Tennessee and much of Middle Tennessee. High humidity levels and temperatures in the low to mid 90s will once again combine to create dangerous heat conditions. The rest of us will be hot and humid, as well, but just below heat advisory-level criteria. A few of us in Middle and East Tennessee may see some relief from the heat in the form of an afternoon thunderstorm.
A few of the storms that developed in the afternoon or evening may linger into the early evening for eastern portions of the state. Otherwise, it’s a muggy night for the Volunteer state, and that high humidity will keep overnight low temperatures in the low to mid 70s.
More clouds and more scattered thunderstorms will knock high temperatures down a bit for Friday. Those rain chances are about 30%-50% statewide. Afternoon highs will be in the mid 90s for the Memphis area, but the rest of us should see highs around 90 degrees.
