Super Sunday…Needed Rain

Off to a foggy start this morning in many areas of Middle Tennessee. The visibility is down to a quarter of an inch in some locations.  The clear sky overnight and light wind set the perfect conditions for that fog to develop.  With temperatures below freezing, even some freezing fog is possible around bodies of water.  Slick spots could form on bridges or overpasses over water.

Sunshine will peak out this afternoon.  That coupled with a southerly wind will help the afternoon high reach 62 degrees. The clouds will increase this afternoon. Perfect weather for a parade.  Snowbird will be featured in the Dickson parade today at 2pm.

An area of Low pressure develops in the plains and moves toward the mid-state.  Meanwhile, moisture will move into the Mid south setting the stage for rain and thunderstorms to develop. Some storms could be strong, especially south of I-40.

Aside from thunderstorms Monday will be Monday with sustained winds of 15-25 mph and gusts 30-40 mph. Make sure your Christmas decorations or lawn furniture is secured.

Here’s the timing on the rain.


Tuesday will be drier with sunshine and very warm. Later Tuesday night into Wednesday another sound of rain moves in.  Over the three day period we could get 2 to 3 inches of rain. With the lack of rain for the past few months, the ground is hard, so run-off from the rain could be a problem.  There could be some flash flooding problems.

A dry pattern returns the end of next week.
