Rain is likely overnight and through most of the day on Saturday…the RPM model’s version of Futurecast has a pretty good handle on that:
The good news is that temperatures will stay near 50° overnight, putting us in the “Goldilocks zone” — warm enough to prevent any icy precipitation, and cool enough to prevent any severe weather threat.
Warm and windy conditions for Christmas itself, with highs close to 70°! Right now I’m forecasting a high of 69°, but if we hit 70° that would put us in the top 5 for “warmest Christmas on record” in Nashville:
We’ll top out close to 70° again Monday, before a good chance of showers and a few storms moves in Monday evening and overnight…once again, no severe weather expected:
Yet another rain chance moves in Wednesday and Thursday…the long-range models are still a bit muddled on that one, but it does look like a significant shot of colder air will move in after that system. I’m not going crazy with HOW cold Friday’s temperatures will be, but that’s the last day of the “4-plus-4-cast,” so stay tuned for updates:
Have a Merry Christmas!
