A front is headed our way on this Election Day, spreading some rain across the area, but it didn’t seem to impact voter turn-out. It looks like it will be a record turn out. Another round of rain will move through tonight right along the front. It won’t do much for the drought, only 1/10″ expected.
Some of the rain lingers into the early morning mainly across southern Middle Tennessee. The sky will clear west to east tomorrow. This is the latest Futurecast depiction of the rain moving through tonight.
Behind the front, the temperatures will be much cooler, the high will be about 62 in Nashville. This is a pattern change to temperatures closer to average for this time of year.
By Thursday morning, the lows will drop all the way down to the upper 30s. That means some patchy frost along the northern Highland Rim, the Tennessee/Kentucky line over to the Upper Cumberland Plateau.
Thursday and Friday will be sunny and mild. Friday is Veterans Day and the weather looks great for parades and other events to honor those who have served. A dry front will move through later on Friday. I’m not expecting any rain with that front but the temperatures will fall again.
By Sunday morning, some areas could get their first freeze of the season.
With this talk of colder weather, there are still a few more days for you to contribute to our coat drive for those in need, Warm Coats from Warm Hearts. You can drop off new or gently used coats to Granny White Church of Christ in Green Hills. The distribution of the coats is this Saturday morning.
I’ll have the latest on the weather on Channel 4 News at 10pm.
