Where I live at 12*S of the Equator ( Darwin Australia ) we can experience +80f ( 26c ) overnight mins many times in the Wet Season months Oct - April. Any nights above 27c ( 81f ) I regard as oppressive and its difficult to sleep without airconditioning. I have an elevated ( on stilts ) tropical house, louvered windows and an artificial tropical jungle garden that gives me a good shade cover. But nights above 80f are tough. I am pretty well acclimatised to the hot nights and rarely turn on the aircon, preferring the ceiling fans to stir the humid air. ( oh and a few beers helps with the sleep too....lol.
Our record hot nights ( as is typical in the deep tropics with not much variation ) are 30c ( 86f ) and combined with high dew points it is quite hard to sleep.
Most of the tropical northern coasts from the Pilbara right around to North Queensland also suffer the hot nights.

In Nashville, in the last 100 years (1920-2019 inclusive) there have been:

5 in June (earliest in the year: June 18, 1936)
9 in July
10 in August
2 in September (both 1925; latest in the year Sept. 8, 1925)

for a total of 26, or 0.26 per year.

They were recorded in only 11 out of the 100 years:
1936 had 6.
1930 had 5.
2007 had 4.
1925, 1952 and 2012 had 2 each.
1934, 1935, 1954, 1966 and 1980 had 1 each.

Just had a quick look for the wet season just finished ( 2019-2020 ) Darwin.

Oct - 2
Nov - 7
Dec - 16
Jan - 10
Feb - 15
Mar - 2
Apr - 2

Total of 54 overnights where the temperature remained above 80f ( 26.7c ).
I'll do a bit more research and see what the record totals are for a season.

30 C nighttime low temperatures sounds impossible during the wet season when it rains every day. Maybe it's possible during a dry spell or a heat wave, but not when it's raining on a daily basis. Rain generally has a cooling effect after a heat wave.

80 F nighttime lows have never been recorded where I'm at. The record highest low at my nearest airport is 74 F (23 C)

This is true. Usually the couple nights that we see with lows in the 70s in July&August are on nights that it rains

Despite what people think, it certainly doesn't rain all day every day. We get between and 2 and 4 Monsoonal bursts per season which can last only 3 or 4 days or sometimes for a fortnight or more at a time. Inbetween times or 'monsoonal break', we revert back to isolated showers and thunderstorms. Every season is different. The last 2 seasons have been almost record dry 'Wets' with only a bit over a 1000mm..... a good season is double that or more.
We also get a period of 'dry monsoons' with hot north westerly dry ( but overcast conditions ) where the cloudiness holds in the heat of an evening.
Trust me, 30c overnight mins combined with high DP's and humidity is pretty brutal.
