December 30: One More Chance of Showers, Daily Links

WEATHER

Some morning showers in eastern Middle Tennessee represent the LAST chance of rain in the entire 7-day forecast!  Those spotty showers should be out of even our easternmost counties by early afternoon, as Futurecast shows:
RPM 10A WED RPM 12P WED RPM 2P WED

Temperatures will warm up to the low to mid 50s around midday, then we’ll start dropping as winds swivel around to the northwest:

It will be cool, but not too breezy for the Music City Bowl this evening (quite a bit more pleasant than when A&M played Vanderbilt back in November, when wind chills were in the 20s!):

Gig ’em.  (Sorry, Cardinal fans.)

The New Years Eve forecast is looking good!  Chilly, but that’s pretty much what we expect this time of year.  There will be some clouds overhead, but they won’t produce any showers you need to worry about if you’re heading out downtown, or heading out anywhere else across the Midstate:

We’ll go back-and-forth with clouds and sunshine the next few days, before abundant sunshine takes over the forecast this weekend and early next week.  Temperatures will be pretty close to “normal” as we finish off 2015 and head into 2016…but then we’ll start warming up again next week:
7 Day PM

 

LINKS

I have a feeling that “nerd news” will be in short supply the rest of the week, because of the New Years holiday.  So this will likely be the last batch of geek-links until Monday.  I’m planning a blog post tomorrow morning to look at what January and February weather has looked like during past strong El Nino events, so check back for that…
