It is going to feel like summertime across Middle Tennessee this week with afternoon highs 88 to 92 degrees, which will be near-record levels for this time of year. It is sunny and dry in the forecast every day through Thursday and there’s only a slight chance of a shower on Friday. I do not see any major changes in this weather pattern through the 20th of the month.
Did you know that on a day when the temperature outside is 75 degrees, inside a vehicle with the windows rolled up it will be 95 degrees within 10 minutes and over 110 in a half-hour? On a 90-degree day the temperature inside will hit 109 in only 10 minutes. Never leave kids or pets for long periods in a closed-up vehicle. Look before you lock!
May 2, 2010 was the historic Nashville flood, with 18 people killed across Middle Tennessee, with Music City picking up over 13 inches of rain in two days. On May 5, 1999, six tornadoes hit the Midstate area with an F-4 in Perry County. Nashville International Airport recorded a wind gust of 99 miles per hour that day. On May 4, 1976, the temperature dropped to 34 degrees with scattered frost.
