There are 4 things to know about our upcoming weather. They are…
1) Surviving the Storm is BACK!
It’s been about six months since the last round of shows, but they start up again this week. I’m talking about our traveling weather roadshow known as Surviving the Storm! The weather team loves putting these on. It’s our chance to meet you and speak with you. We teach the best practices for protecting yourself and your loved ones during severe weather. We cover a variety of other topics, including winter weather and climate too. We field your questions live, play weather games, and have dozens of giveaways. It’s so worth an hour of your time, and best of all….it’s free!
So, come on out and join us for Surviving the Storm, this Thursday night at Trousdale County High School. Doors open at 6pm and the show starts promptly at 7pm. The entire weather team will be there, including Snowbird and our newest member, Daphne DeLoren. We hope you join us then!
Here’s a look at the schedule for the entire fall season, so you can plan ahead:
2) This evening looks lovely.
If you have evening plans that’ll take you outdoors, well then lucky you! It should be quite pleasant tonight, as the fair weather clouds of this afternoon fizzle out.
Temperatures now are running in the 70s. We’ll have mainly 60s this evening…
3) We need rain!
Take a look at the mounting rainfall deficit for the Nashville area:
There’s some in your forecast, but not much.
4) Hurricane Matthew needs to be watched very carefully as it inches closer!
Matthew is still a very powerful category 4 storm in the Caribbean Sea. It’s likely it’ll clip the westernmost tip of Haiti late tonight, with the center passing just west of Port-Au-Prince. Right now, the latest track pushes it farther north through the rest of the week, precariously close to Florida and the Carolinas…
Another update from the National Hurricane Center arrives just 30 minutes from now.
Coming up today on Channel 4 News, beginning at 4pm, we’ll share that update, we’ll talk about what part of the continental United States is most at risk from Hurricane Matthew. We’ll address when rain is most likely in your forecast and how much is expected. We’ll also cover how hot it’ll turn this week (hint: count on a big change in the feel outdoors)!
