347 PM CDT THU SEP 3 2015

THIS LABOR DAY WEEKEND IS FORECAST TO BE A HOT ONE FOR MOST OF
MIDDLE TENNESSEE.

HIGH TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO TOP OUT IN THE LOWER AND MIDDLE
90S WEST OF THE CUMBERLAND PLATEAU THROUGH AT LEAST SUNDAY...WITH
A HIGH OF 95 DEGREES FORECAST FOR NASHVILLE BOTH TOMORROW AND
AGAIN ON SATURDAY. TEMPERATURES OVER MUCH OF OUR AREA WILL BE
RUNNING SOME FIVE TO TEN DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL.

MANY FOLKS WILL PROBABLY SPEND MUCH OF THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND
OUTDOORS AND...BECAUSE OF THAT...WE WOULD LIKE TO ENCOURAGE
EVERYONE TO KEEP HOT WEATHER SAFETY IN MIND. TRY AND LIMIT YOUR
TIME OUTSIDE DURING THE HOTTEST PART OF THE DAY...AND BE SURE TO
STAY HYDRATED BY DRINKING PLENTY OF NON ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES.

NEVER LEAVE CHILDREN OR PETS ALONE IN AN AUTOMOBILE...NOT EVEN
FOR A FEW MINUTES. IN THIS SORT OF HEAT...TEMPERATURES INSIDE A
PARKED VEHICLE CAN QUICKLY RISE TO DANGEROUS LEVELS.

UNFORTUNATELY...THE WEATHER WILL OFFER LITTLE RELIEF FROM THE HEAT
OVER THE WEEKEND...WITH MAINLY JUST ISOLATED AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORMS
EXPECTED EACH DAY.
