Get Ready: Roller Coast Ride for Temperatures!

Autumn is typically a season with sharp weather changes.  This week will serve up a classic example of that.

Today, temperatures will continue their ascent. Yesterday’s high was 84 degrees at the Nashville International Airport.  Today, I expect a high of 85.

Outdoors now, it’s very mild and pleasant.  There’s a little humidity in the air along with a light breeze.  Here’s a look at current temperatures:

There are just a couple of small showers in the Mid State now (as of 7:30am).  They’re moving toward the northeast.  The rain chance today will remain low, as advertised — about 5%.  SO, rain isn’t impossible, but it’s certainly not likely.

Clouds are here and there across the Mid State.  Take a look out the window in many of our communities.  The bottom picture in the series below is from Clarksville.

The Titans forecast for today looks excellent.  Kickoff at Nissan Stadium is at noon, when it should be around 80 degrees.

Good news for fall seasonal allergy sufferers:  the pollen shouldn’t be too bad today!

Come tomorrow, the heat will continue to build.  I expect new record highs on both Monday and Tuesday.

Wednesday also appears as if it’ll be hot.  Then, a cold front will slide through on Thursday with some showers and a sharp drop in temperature.  The airmass that takes over behind the front will be so cool that we’ll likely have the first frost of the season for some Middle Tennessee communities on Saturday morning, as the coolest spots dip into the middle 30s.

I’ll have much more on the record heat and this approaching strong cold front coming up in just moments on Channel 4 News Today, beginning at 8am.  We hope you tune in!
