Calm Before the Storm

HAPPY NEW YEAR! It’s been a soggy one so far, friends. Drizzle and fog continue to spread across Middle Tennessee but in terms of rain, not a whole lot to track for you.

With a blanket of clouds overhead, temperatures have been mild and steady, in the lower 50-degree range. Expect the same temperature when you wake up bright and early tomorrow morning — about fifteen degrees ABOVE average. wsmv-dma-temps-zoom1_effectsquiggle-autoplot

We start the work week even warmer! Southeasterly winds ahead of our next approaching system pump in upper 60s for an afternoon high — my goodness. According to early January standards, we should be at 47 degrees. daphne-icast-temperature

Scattered showers will be the trend during the first of of the day before showers and thunderstorms pick up late in the day. Some of these storms could be strong to severe with damaging winds as a main threat. You’ll want to stay weather aware for update throughout the day and a great way to do that, is by downloading our FREE ‘WSMV WX’ app…

The Storm Prediction Center currently has all of Middle Tennessee under a ‘Marginal Risk’ (1 on a 1/5 scale) for any of these storms to reach severe criteria.

I’m expecting rainfall totals to range between 0.5″ and 1.5″ (with some of the heavier downpours) through Tuesday evening.

Besides scattered showers and another round of mid-upper 60s on Tuesday, Mother Nature does a 180! Bright sunshine will come at the cost of a sharp cool down into the lower 40s by Wednesday. With even cooler temperatures on Thursday, the 20% of precip I’m forecasting will be in the form of s-n-o-w. Nothing measurable at this point but roads could be slick in some spots.

I’ll have the full timeline of this seesaw weather coming up on channel 4 at 10:30 tonight.
