It was like a summer-like day today, with a record high of 81…ditto tomorrow with record setting heat. Crossville also set a new record of 75 degrees.
The front will bring some much needed rain by tomorrow night and we really do need rain. The new Drought Monitor came out today and things are even worse… all of Middle Tennessee is either under a severe drought or and extreme drought. Nashville is almost 7″ below average for the year. Crossville is over 11″ below the annual average.
A front approaches tomorrow, but it will be dry most of the day, giving plenty of time to hit a new record, with a forecasted high of 81. The rain rolls into the mid-state in the late afternoon and evening. Here’s Futurecast’s latest depiction. The rain moves out by early Saturday morning.
There is definitely cold air behind that front. Snow is falling in North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Colorado…yes Denver is getting snow.
We are looking at morning low dropping into the 30s and even some 20s over the weekend. But we aren’t expecting the snow.
Looking ahead to Thanksgiving we could have a few showers, but temperatures will be close to average.
I’ll have an update on Channel 4 News at 10pm.
