Weekend Weather and Happenings

Great fall weekend with plenty of sunshine and chilly morning temperatures and seasonally cool afternoons. This will be great for folks traveling back home from holiday destinations. The next rain making system arrives the beginning of next week with 2 rounds of rain…the first Monday night to early Tuesday and then again Wednesday.  Monday into Tuesday will be windy with some strong thunderstorms possible.

Over that three day period next week, we could see  1-2″ of rain.  This will not be enough to climate the drought, but it will help. It’s the best chance of rain we’ve had in 2 months.  The last time we had 1″ or more of rain in Nashville was August 27. As a result  “Extreme Drought” conditions have now spread even farther north and west across Middle Tennessee.
