School Delays across the Tennessee Valley

Rain chances fall, while temperatures rise this week

A cold front is pushing through the Tennessee Valley, which means we will get a break from the humidity…at least for a short while!

Unfortunately, we don’t get a taste of cooler air behind the cold front. Instead, some of the hottest weather of the year develops! A summertime ridge sets up just to our west this week, cutting back rain chances and turning up the heat.

Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday all look like mainly dry days which will allow temperatures to soar into the mid 90s each afternoon. That still leaves us nearly 10 degrees shy of our records; our record high temperatures for this week range from 101°F-108°F!

While our actual temperatures won’t reach the 100s, our ‘feels like’ temperatures will! The heat index this week will climb to 100°F-108°F during the afternoons this week. Wear loose-fitting clothes, drink plenty of water, and avoid being outside for too long doing the hottest part of the day (2PM-4PM)!

More moisture from the Gulf will bring us better rain chances by the last half of the week, but we still don’t see a good soaking rain in the near future!
