Monday’s record-tying high temperatures show no signs of abating, as chances of thunderstorms shadow the rest of the week and weekend.

Monday’s recorded high of 92 degrees in Nashville tied the record for May 15, set in 1881. Tuesday’s predicted high of 91 degrees is also likely to tie a record, with a 30 percent chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon.

“Even though we’re not in summertime, it’s more of a summertime pattern,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Brittney Whitehead.


Whitehead said there has been enough moisture and instability that there is a chance of “pop up” storms each day this week.

“It is weird, we reached 90 earlier than our average dates,” Whitehead said, agreeing, “it’s not totally normal, no. but it’s just because of the pattern we’re in right now.”

That pattern of moisture and high pressure will continue throughout the week and into the weekend, though no severe storms are expected.
