Feeble convective activity to continue across TN

Over the last week, there has been suppression in convective activity over most parts of the state. Atmospheric factors continue to show a mid level ridge as well as weak wind patterns resulting in poor thunderstorm activity.

Additionally, the compressive heat and clear skies have caused a surge in daytime / night time temperatures. Numerical models indicate these conditions to ease later this week albeit no major rainfall is expected.
