Delightful Sunshine Before Increasing Storm Chances Return

After a rainy and stormy Saturday, today was just beautiful. The afternoon high hit average in Nashville, checking in at 90 degrees. Besides a few spotty showers and storms over southeastern Middle Tennessee, the radar has been perfect for Sunday fun day out by the pool. Here’s the latest radar update (6:38 PM Sunday)…


Just a few isolated storms east of the I-24 corridor over southeastern Middle Tennessee. One mini storm makes itself comfortable just southeast of Columbia.

Dry and overall comfortable weather continues through tonight so any outdoor plans get a two thumbs up. Low 80s will dip down to 70 degrees for an overnight low. This is a touch cooler than the 73 we woke up to this morning. Not much of a difference but worth the mention. 🙂

The same frontal boundary that fueled showers and storms yesterday, is currently over the TN/KY border, out of our hair (brief). Drier air behind the front paves way for a less humid day ahead. Let’s check in with muggy meter…


Still humid but not AS bad. We’ll take it!

The week starts off dry for most of the area. A few spotty showers and thunderstorms are possible for eastern Middle Tennessee and the Cumberland plateau on Monday but most will dodge the rain.

My main concern will be developing patchy fog overnight into the early morning hours. Please keep this in mind and maybe allow a few extra minutes to get to your destination. A friendly reminder — be sure to have the low beams on. Our natural tendency can be to turn the high beams on, which will actually reflect back into your eyes making the situation worse.

After a mainly dry Monday, the same frontal boundary that pushed south of the state, will begin lifting northward before stalling out over Tennessee. This brings decent shower and storm chances to Middle Tennessee on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. In other words, plan to keep the umbrella handy for most of the week ahead.WSMV 4DAY FORECAST

Two very different situations have taken place in Middle Tennessee so far this summer. Areas north of the I-40 corridor have hogged most of the rain so far…


July was very rainy, and the seven days we have had so far in August prove to be the same. Nashville checks in with 1.55″ rainfall totals for the month which is 0.90″ above the average. Southern portion of Middle Tennessee? Very different story…


A good chunk of the area remains under a severe drought. The expected rain in the week ahead will help.

Here’s a peak at the next seven days and what I’ll be breaking down on channel 4 at 11 PM tonight (delay due to Olympics).
