November 10: Warming Up, Daily Links

WEATHER

We started off chilly this morning!  The lowest temperature I saw in Nashville was 36° (we’ll get the “official” reading later this morning), but a few spots started off in the upper 20s!  Abundant sunshine in store for us today, and we’ll warm up nicely with highs this afternoon reaching the mid to upper 60s.

Another cool night tonight, but not quite as chilly, with lows bottoming out around 40° in Nashville, in the 30s outside of the Metro:

A few clouds late in the day Friday, but still no rain in the forecast. Temperatures tomorrow will top out in the mid to upper 60s again:

Another wave of cooler air heads in for Saturday, when highs will only reach up to around 60°.  Frosty conditions possible again Sunday morning — don’t worry too much about the slight shower chance Sunday afternoon:

That 20% chance is the “just in case” forecast — some forecast models keep us sunny and dry, but the European and Canadian models are both hinting at some clouds and light shower activity in eastern Middle Tennessee late in the day.  Are those models onto something, or is it just a little hiccup in the data?  Time will tell, but I’m not getting carried away with the rain chances considering we’re stuck in such a dry pattern overall.

How dry?  More and more of the Midstate is now included as being in at least “severe” drought.  Here’s the latest update from the U.S. Drought Monitor:
