A very warm start to the week, 78 degrees in Nashville, well above the average of 62 for an early November afternoon high. A cold front approaches tomorrow, it will bring some rain and cooler air. Unfortunately, the rain will not be very helpful with the drought. It’s at it’s worst across the southern third of Middle Tennessee.
I was in Grundy County this weekend and one of my favorite hiking spots, Greeter Falls has dried so much that there really isn’t a fall anymore.
This weak front tomorrow will bring a few showers, but it won’t do much for the drought, only a .10″ of rain is expected. Weather should not be a factor in tomorrow’s election. Here’s the latest Futurecast depiction. You can see that the rain will most likely arrive late in the afternoon and into the evening. It will move west to east, leaving a chance of a few showers early on Wednesday morning, mainly to the east.
Cooler air will follow. By Wednesday we can expect some morning lows in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees. Afternoon highs will be in the 60s, which is closer to average for this time of year.
Friday is Veterans Day and the weather looks great for honoring those who served to keep our great country free. Parade time is 11am in Nashville.
Even cooler air is expected over the weekend. I’ll have the latest forecast on Channel 4 News at 10pm
