Wintry Weather is Back!

After two consecutive weeks with temperatures well above the average, things are beginning to change.  Today, obviously, feels much colder!  Have a look at temperatures as of 3pm.  Notice the strong northwest wind hasn’t let up yet either.

The rain from the weekend has moved out.  The clouds are trying to follow suit, but are having difficulty in most locations.  Notice where there IS some clearing.

Sunshine’s been the main story today in Lawrenceburg…and it’s still gorgeous down there.

Brentwood is also seeing some brightening.

This evening, clouds will hold their own in most spots.  Where there has been some clearing, clouds will reform by dawn.  SO…I expect some sunny areas around sunrise tomorrow, while other areas are still gray.

That’ll all change late tomorrow morning and into tomorrow afternoon as the clouds finally move away!

Because of that, temperatures will recover nicely into the 50s.

Right now, Wednesday looks even milder before a more long-term installment of wintry air moves in.  We’ll tell you more about that and look at any opportunities for rain or snow in your forecast on Channel 4 News this evening, beginning at 4pm.

    Wintry weather will be back but it won’t stand a chance of keeping this January from the record-tying 12th month in a row with above-normal temperatures. As of yesterday, we’re already an incredible 10.3 degrees above normal, regardless of a nearly week-long stretch of cold weather from 4th thru 9th.
    Most consecutive warmer than average months in Nashville:
    12 May 1881 – April 1882
    11 May 2007 – March 2008
    10 May 1998 – February 1999
    9 November 2011 – July 2012
    It would also mean that out of the last 17 months, starting with September 2015, 16 were warmer than average.
    Another rather remarkable feature of this month is how cloudy it’s been so far. For the 22 days already in the books, the accumulated sky cover value is 192 out of the maximum possible 220. That gives a very high average value of 8.7 from midnight to midnight, meaning either that at any given moment 87% of the sky over Nashville is covered by clouds or, conversely, 87% of the time so far the sky has been overcast. The cloudiest January and any month since the records began in our city, occurred in 1949, with only 2 clear and a whopping 28 cloudy days along with a miserable 17% of available sunshine, which is also the lowest on record. Fortunately, it looks like we’ll see considerable brightening in the coming days.

    Corrections are in order, it should be: on any given day, or 87% of the days.
