In the summertime pattern of scatter, pop-up thunderstorms, Williamson County could see a break by the middle of the week.

But first, storms are likely to hit Tuesday after lunch, says National Weather Service Meteorologist Matt Regan.

He said storms may stick around Wednesday, but that Thursday and Friday should be pretty dry, due to higher pressures building into the area.

Temperatures will also climb over the weekend, with Friday in the mid-90s, and Saturday likely to be the hottest day of the week.

Thunderstorms may resume over the weekend though, so batten down the hatches!

Here is the latest weather forecast from the National Weather Service bureau in Nashville.
