We’re on the last train to Clarksville with today’s forecast for the city off to the northwest of Nashville. They sure like their ‘villes in Tennessee, don’t they?
At 1152AM, CT, Clarksville was reporting a temperature of 91 degrees with clear skies. The entire region was in a heat advisory with heat indexes climbing to near triple digits as dew points were about 70 degrees. The entire southeast was under high pressure, and Tropical Storm Bonnie was closing flow to he north, keeping places rain free.
The upper level jet still rode well to the north of Tennessee. A trough at the back edge of the jet was trying to dip south, but it didn’t have much strength, and laminar flow will likely continue to dominate. What does this mean for Clarksville? Not much change. Continued hot and humid weather with no major storm systems are on their way. By Sunday afternoon, Bonnie’s influence will be mitigated and southerly flow off the Gulf will return, bringing with it some isolated showers and storms for central and eastern Tennessee.

That is steamy. Looks like, as usual, Accuweather is going for the most sensational forecast possible. A look at the satellite shows how cloud free the southeast is. Rare to see this kind of clarity.
