What a cooldown we had today, after a high of 71 degrees yesterday at the Nashville International Airport! The big temperature shift was brought to you by a cold front that pushed southward into the Mid State. Take a look at temperatures now (as of 9:10pm)…
South of the front, it feels like spring. North of the front, it’s cool if not chilly.
That front will waver back and forth through the Mid State over the weekend. That’ll keep the southernmost communities of our area much warmer than those along the TN/KY line.
Rain’s not a big problem outdoors tonight. We’re contending with mainly just mist and drizzle. 4WARN Live Doppler Radar doesn’t show a whole lot…
Tomorrow, rain will redevelop across Middle Tennessee, especially along and north of I-40. That’s where the best chance for rain will be through the weekend. Of course, along with some showers, we’ll also have to deal with areas of fog, mist, and drizzle here and there.
There even could be a few sunny breaks across far southern Middle Tennessee tomorrow afternoon. Temperatures in the afternoon will be in the 50s and 60s.
Sunday look unsettled as well, but likely with less rain coverage. Clouds will still dominate and highs will largely be in the 50s again (like today).
Then, things begin to change Monday (Martin Luther King Day) as that same front pushes northward into the Midwest. That will allow more sunshine to develop, as temperatures climb to around 70!
A few showers are likely here and there on Monday, before steady widespread rain moves in on Tuesday & Wednesday. I’ll share more on that potential tonight, on Channel 4 News at 10pm.
