Big heat with limited storms through the end of the week

The hottest temperatures of the year are expected tomorrow with limited rain.
Tonight we'll watch closely a cluster of thunderstorms that is expected to develop across middle Missouri and drift south. Current thinking is that this cluster, if it forms, will clip our northern Tennessee counties; Dyer & Gibson, I am talking to you. Wind, lightning, hail and heavy rain will be your biggest concerns. The rest of the area will likely stay rain free but plenty muggy. Lows tonight into Thursday will only fall into the middle 70s. A strong ridge of high pressure will take over briefly tomorrow keeping rain chances low and temperatures high. In fact, we're forecasting the hottest readings of the season in the upper 90s and a heat index well above 100°. A final kicker cold front will slide through Thursday night into Friday bringing with it a higher chance at thunderstorms through Friday evening. Some of those storms may pack an extra punch with wind, rain, lightning & hail; especially Friday. Meanwhile, we'll have plenty of clouds and enough storms around to keep temperatures a little cooler in the low 90s. The front will slide east of us by Saturday bringing a return to mostly sunny skies and comfortable numbers. Saturday through the start of next week will hover a degree within 90° and only the smallest chance at afternoon storms. Overnight lows is where you will feel the change the most, we'll fall into the 60s starting Saturday night.

Be safe and enjoy your Wednesday!
