Wow, what a beautiful day, it just wasn’t what you expect this time of year. In Nashville, it reached 83 degrees…not quite a record, but close. The high is 86 degrees set way back in 1919, needless to say, don’t remember that one.
Starting this weekend, a few more records could be in jeopardy. Our 4WARN forecast has highs in the low to mid 80s over the weekend, so it is possible new records will be set.
The sunset was beautiful tonight, thanks in part to the increase in cloud cover. Jan captured this beautiful shot in Liberty.
The cloud cover is an indicator of change. A weak system will give the mid-state a small chance of rain overnight and into tomorrow. It won’t amount to much over a tenth of an inch and most people won’t see it, so this will not really help with the drought problem in Middle Tennessee particularly in the southeast corner of our area. The lack of rain has really put a strain on farmers trying to plant and especially for those with livestock. Some ranchers are telling me that the grass is gone, so they are having to feed their cattle hay. This means they are dipping into the supply of hay that is supposed to be for the winter. Plus they are having to haul in water for their cattle too. They could use a drenching rain to at least help with the problem.
They only rain in the forecast at this time is the rain that could fall overnight and early tomorrow.
Any rain that moves in should be gone by game time tomorrow night for the Titans. The weather looks great.
A little reminder, the last Surviving the Storm is tomorrow night, so if you aren’t going to the game we would love to see you at our free program. We are cheaper than going to the Titan’s game and you will for sure be a winner if you are one of the first 50 to come in the door. We have Snowbird goodies to pass along.
I’ll have a weather update tonight on Channel 4 News at 10pm.
