FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Heat index expected to be around 105 degrees

(WAFF) -

A line of storms is dropping south from middle Tennessee. 

Areas north of the Tennessee River and to the east of I-65 stand the best chance of seeing rain Friday morning. These storms have also been quite active from a lightning stand point. By mid-morning Friday, we should be dry with a mix of sun and clouds. Temperatures will warm up quickly and we continue our First Alert for heat index values around 105 degrees as well as a round of potentially strong storms this afternoon. 

Actual highs should top out in the mid 90s. If you’ll be working, or doing anything outside for that matter, make sure you’re staying safe by drinking plenty of water and taking breaks in the shade or A/C. If storms manage to fire up Friday afternoon, isolated wind damage is possible. 

These storms would also be capable of producing significant lightning and locally heavy downpours.  You can keep track of weather on the go with our WAFF 48 First Alert weather app.  Any storms should wind down this evening and we’ll see a quiet night with lows in the mid 70s.
