A heat advisory remains in effect for the Clarksville area through the day today as temperatures are once again expected to reach the lower hundreds. The high temperatures over the past two days in Clarksville are 109 on Friday and 107 yesterday.
The large ridge that has been bringing hot temperatures to the Clarksville area is starting to break down, but another hot day is expected today. Today’s high temperatures are once again expected to be in the lower hundreds. The temperatures will cool into the nineties by the beginning of the workweek as the ridge continues to break down. This will also allow a few weak waves to move through the area and trigger isolated showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon. These storms may produce heavy rain at times and not everyone will see precipitation, but any rain will be welcomed as Clarksville is currently under a moderate drought. Looking to the rest of the workweek, temperatures are expected to continue to be in the middle nineties with a risk for an afternoon shower or thunderstorm each day.
