See Saw Front

It feels like we are on a see saw going up and down with temperatures.  But it’s not really us, it’s the front that is moving up and down.  We started off chilly this morning and warmed to 76 this afternoon in Nashville as the warm front moved north.  But that was not the case with every area.  Clarksville stayed in the 60s all day, while Lawrenceburg reached the 80s.

Tomorrow the front moves back the other direction as a cold front, cooling all of the mid-state this time. Most locations will be in the 60s.  Nashville may reach 70.

Then there is the rain part of the story, when the front moved north today, it took the rain with it.  The front is moving south now and the rain is returning.  A thunderstorm or two is possible, but not very likely and no severe weather is expected.  The rain is already moving in.



This Futurecast model shows how the rain will continue to move in overnight. For some folks it will be a wet drive in. The rain will taper off in the afternoon to just a few isolated showers.

With a change in the upper level pattern and the lack of moisture, I don’t think we will see much in the way of rain Wednesday afternoon until Thursday night. By Friday a disturbance moving from the central plains will provide enough instability for rain and thunderstorms.  At this time it doesn’t look severe.  1 to 2″ of rain is likely.


Sunday and Monday of next week the pattern changes becoming sunny and warm again.
