Weekend Weather and Happenings

Change is on the way…as I am writing this a line of thunderstorms is moving through Middle Tennessee, a few warnings have been issued. The storms should continue to weaken as it moves into Middle Tennessee bringing some much needed rain. Rainfall totals should generally be under .50″ with some isolated greater amounts mainly in the western part of the mid-state.

Again to day, it was unseasonably warm, just missing a record high by one degree.

That will not be the case tomorrow as cold air moves in behind the front.  Here’s the latest Futurecast depicting on the timing of the rain.


Along with the cold air comes a stiff wind.  That will make afternoon highs in the mid-50s feel like the  40s. Overnight temperatures will be the coldest of the season.  A Freeze Watch has been issued Saturday night 6pm to Sunday morning 8am.


Time to get the coats and sweaters out…but no outdoor bon fires…it’s too dry.


You’ll need the jackets for football games this weekend and anything else you have in mind.  Here are a few things happening this weekend.

The 15th annual ReLeafing Day will take place this Saturday, in Northwest Nashville’s Bordeaux, Haynes Manor and Haynes Park neighborhoods, and at ten Metro Schools.
Volunteers will plant young shade trees, including maple, oak, sweet gum and tulip poplar, for residents expressed interest in receiving the free trees.  To sign up or to learn more about the event visit ls-temp-16

Do you want to give gifts this Christmas with a deeper meaning? Try the Alternative Gift Fair, known as “Mall-ternative,” at Christ United Methodist Church in Franklin.  The fair offers wonderful options including baked goods, handcrafted gifts, books, holiday décor, fair trade goods and much more! Some of the ministries represented include Community Care Fellowship, The Bethlehem Centers of Nashville, Thistle Farms, Christ UMC’s Nicaragua Project and Prison Ministry, Open Table, Habitat for Humanity, Graceworks, Miriam’s Promise, 61st Avenue UMC and more.  Shopping hours are Saturday, November 19th from 9am-4pm and then again Sunday morning, November 20 from 9am-1pm


Tomorrow at 2pm, Snowbird will be in the Christmas Parade in Springfield.  Blow him a kiss for me.

I’ll have a weather update on Channel 4 News at 10pm.
