December 12: An Up-And-Down Week, Daily Links


Some very welcome rain fell across the Midstate overnight into early this morning — Nashville officially picked up close to one inch of rain, most of which fell after midnight:
Still a significant rainfall deficit for 2016 overall, but every one of these soaking rain events really helps to alleviate the drought conditions.

The last of this morning’s widespread rain is moving off to the east, but the cloud cover will be tougher to shake the rest of the day.  I think “partial clearing” is the most-likely scenario for this afternoon, but I’m willing to be surprised by some additional sunshine!  Temperatures will hover around 50° throughout the day:

We’ll drop to the upper 30s tonight:

Clouds will thicken overnight, with light rain showers developing again on Tuesday:

Significantly colder air heads in Wednesday and Thursday…the frigid air will stay off to our north, but we’re still in for 48 hours or so of substantially below-average temperatures:
The next chance of heavier rain arrives Friday night and Saturday — that should be all rain, without any wintry shenanigans around here.  At this point, it looks like any severe weather threat will stay down to our south…we’ll keep you posted!
