A Brief Return to Winter

It was another usually warm day with the afternoon high reaching 66 degrees, but tomorrow things will feel a little more like the season.  A front is crossing eastern Middle Tennessee right now, cooler air is lagging behind that front.  Out ahead of the front rain has been falling, Nashville picked up .63″ of rain.  One of the higher totals came in from the Weather Bug station at TSU with over 1″


Notice Clarksville’s temperature at 6pm, 51 degrees, while in Nashville, it’s 59 degrees.  That is an indication of the cooler air that is moving into Middle Tennessee. Tonight the low will drop to 42, while that is still above average, it is much cooler than it has been. Expect some areas of fog to develop.  On a side note, the International Space Station will make a pass over in the morning at 5:48AM.  It will appear in the northwest sky and exit the southeast sky. The maximum height will reach 85 degrees.  Keep in mind the fog and some clouds could make viewing it difficult.  It only last for 3 minutes.


Many have been asking me for sunshine, we’ll get a little more tomorrow, but it will be much cooler, with a high near 53.

The rain doesn’t stay gone for long and neither does the incredibly warm air, Thursday the next system will bring rain and even a few isolated thunderstorms with the high returning to the 60s. Here’s the way Futurecast lays it out.

Friday the trough of low pressure pulls away taking the rain, but it will remain mild.

As for the weekend, Saturday will be the better of the two weekend days, there will be a few showers, but Sunday the chance of rain increases.  Both days will remain in the 60s for afternoon highs.


I’ll have an update on Channel 4 News at 10pm.
