A weak wave will move through the Clarksville area today bringing partly cloudy skies and the slight risk for a shower or thunderstorm to the region. The risk is small, but any thunderstorms that do develop run the risk of producing heavy rains and vivid lightning. The main weather story for the week is the summer heat. Temperatures for today are expected to rise into the lower to middle nineties as a southwest breeze continues to bring the warm, humid air in. The hottest temperatures of the weekend and for this summer are expected to happen Saturday as high pressure moves over the region and temperatures will approach the century mark. If you have to be outside in the heat during this week and into the weekend, please stay hydrated, drink plenty of water, and take breaks from the heat by going inside a structure with air conditioning.
