A little warmer today with high temperatures making a run at 90º. It will also be a little more humid today, too. We’ll see plenty of sunshine throughout the day.

An Air Quality Alert is in effect until Midnight for several counties in Middle Tennessee. The general public will not be affected, but the elderly, children, and those with breathing problems (asthma, COPD, etc.) may want to limit time outdoors today.

Low temperatures fall to the mid-to-upper 60s.


Sunday will start off nice. The morning and afternoon will be mostly dry. We could see a spot shower or even an isolated storm during the day. Later in the evening, a cluster of storms will push in from the west, tracking east. Some of these storms could be severe, with the main threats being damaging wind gusts and a little hail. We will also see a good soaking with rainfall totals of around 1-2 inches.
