Fantastic weekend ahead for outdoor activities. A dry front came through today, and it was definitely dry…not one raindrop. So, cooler air will follow for the weekend. A ridge of high pressure will be controlling our weather this weekend and into the beginning of next week.
Tomorrow will be cooler with a high near 60 degrees, closer to average this time of year. By Sunday morning, the low will drop to 35 degrees in Nashville, that means some areas will drop down to freezing. Afternoon highs will start to rebound into the mid to upper 60s this week. By Tuesday there will be more clouds and just a slim chance of a shower.
Not much chance of rain over the next 7 days. Tennessee has declared a State of Emergency because of the drought conditions. Nashville is in a moderate to severe drought.
There are many things going on this weekend…the dry weather will be good for them. Tomorrow I will be at the Granny White Pike Church of Christ for the annual Warm Coats from Warm Hearts distribution. If you know someone who needs a coat, the giveaway begins at 9:00 AM.
Nashville Half Marathon, Marathon, & 5K, a benefit for Gilda’s Club takes runners and walkers through some of Nashville’s most beautiful and historic scenery. The race begins at 7:00AM
Many Veteran’s Day Parades happened today, but there is another special one tomorrow at the Murfreesboro VA on the Alvin York campus. The parade is for those veterans who could not attend parades. Everyone is encouraged to come out and show your appreciation.
