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:
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:
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…
- I mentioned this briefly on-air this morning — a unusually strong series of storms in the Atlantic Ocean will help send temperatures at the North Pole up to over 50 degrees above-average.
- One meteorologist’s suggested weather-resolution list for the general public.
- The “blob” of warm water in the Pacific Ocean that helped drive such a cold weather pattern in the eastern U.S. the past couple of years has now dissipated. El Nino wins.
- This El Nino event’s impacts could be even worse than what happened in 1998 (the last strong El Nino).
- Here’s the space-weather forecast for 2016.
- The European Space Agency is making one more effort to contact its out-of-battery-power comet lander.
- We all traveled over 12 billion miles in 2015. Here’s how that’s possible.
- Real-life death stars: new evidence for white dwarf stars that consume their planets.
- 2015 might go down as a transformative year in terms of how the United States generates electricity.
- Sorting out the riddle of how the human body’s “internal clock” ticks.
- I’m just relieved that I’m not in this video: 2015’s best (or worst) weather bloopers.
