The Transition is Happening

Just in time for the drive home for many today there was a blast of rain and thunderstorms.  That was a secondary front and a little disturbance moving through on the northwest flow.  For some the winds were high enough to cause some damage. There were a couple of reports of trees down and shingles off roofs. The clouds were attention getting.

The thunderstorms have diminished to just a few rainshower now.  The rain did drop the temperatures in the afternoon…it was really hot before that, reaching 94 degrees in Nashville.

Slightly cooler and drier air will move in as high pressure takes over. Highs tomorrow will be in the mid 80s. This trend with lower humidity will last through Thursday night.  The overnight lows overnight into Thursday will be 5-7 degrees below average…nice for a change. This will be a great opportunity to spend some time outside…walk the dog, wash the car, weed the flowerbed (ugh).  You get the idea.

WSMV 4DAY FORECAST

Back to reality for the weekend.  The dew points will to start to rise. A front will sag south and then stall out. That will set the stage for a few isolated thunderstorms on Friday.  The chances of rain will increase through the weekend to a 40% chance. This does not mean an all day wash out but if you have outdoor plans you’ll want to be prepared to head inside until the storms pass.

 

 

This forecast scenario does include Monday too.  Highs over the holiday weekend will be near 90 degrees, so it will be hot.
