May 13: Cool and Breezy Weekend, Daily Links

WEATHER

The rain has moved off to the east, and we’ll settle into a generally calmer weather pattern today and through the weekend.  Today’s weather looks spectacular…a full happy-dog stamp of approval from our favorite weather helper:
PAUL DAGNY FORECAST

Another cold front will drop down in our direction tonight — that front will spark some strong to severe storms in the Midwest today…
FRIDAY STORMS
…but the rain will fizzle before it moves into our neck of the woods.  Futurecast just shows some clouds hanging around Saturday morning, and maybe a sprinkle to the east/northeast of Nashville:
RPM 7A SAT RPM 10A SAT
The main impact from that cold front will be felt in our temperatures, as a chunk of cool Canadian air slides down through the eastern half of the country:
COOL WEEKEND
If you’re heading out to the Iroquois Steeplechase (or for any other outdoor activities on Saturday), dress appropriately — temperatures will be about ten degrees below-average, with winds gusting to around 20 mph.
PAUL EVENT FORECAST
Morning clouds will give way to afternoon sunshine, which will hopefully make it feel a bit warmer later in the day.

Still cool Sunday, with a gradually increasing clouds throughout the day.  We should stay dry during the day Sunday, but a few showers will sneak in late Sunday night.  The best chance of rain in the 7-day forecast heads our way Monday and Tuesday:
WSMV 7 Day AM
We’ll be on the cool side of that storm system Monday, which means we’ll see mostly showers, with just a few non-severe rumblers mixed in.  But it looks like we’ll be in the “warm sector” Tuesday — if we’re going to get any strong/severe storms, that would be the day.  It’s still a long way down the line overall, so it’s too early to be concerned.
