The heat and humidity has returned to the Clarksville area as high temperatures today are expected to reach ninety. With the increase in humidity and an approaching system, the risk for showers and thunderstorms has also returned for the region. The risk for precipitation today will be low, but will increase into the day Tuesday as the frontal system approaches. The best chance of precipitation will be overnight Tuesday as the system moves through the region. Any thunderstorms that do develop run the risk for becoming strong to severe with gusty winds, hail, and heavy rain as the main concerns. The risk for precipitation will come to an end Wednesday as the frontal system pushes to the south with temperatures cooling into the middle eighties by Thursday. Partly cloudy skies will be expected Thursday into Friday before the humidity increases again for the upcoming weekend.
