StormWatch+. I am very excited about this new service, which will revolutionize the way you receive severe weather information! If you haven't already downloaded the apps, I encourage you to do so so that you will be ready for the upgrades when they are released. The iPhone update should be ready next week and then we'll get to work on porting it to Android. You can download the apps by searching for "MemphisWeather.net" in the App Store, iTunes, or Android Market or by clicking on the links on MemphisWeather.net.
So, back to the weather at hand... A cold front is passing through the region today with little fanfare. However, we will begin to see a marked difference in one thing with this front - the humidity! By tomorrow afternoon, even though temperatures will still be near 90, the humidity will bottom out near 40%, which will make it feel much more comfortable. The lower humidity values will also allow overnight temperatures to drop down into the 60s for the next few nights everywhere except perhaps on the concrete of the big city. Pleasantly warm high pressure that takes hold behind the front will hang on through the weekend and right into next weekend thanks to Hurricane Irene moving up the East Coast and keeping weather systems over our part of the country at bay for a few days.
