January 31: June-uary Again, Daily Links


Overall this has been a very warm month — through the first 30 days of January, temperatures have been 9.2° above-average!  So it seems appropriate that we have unseasonably warm temperatures in store for this last day of January, with highs reaching the low to mid 60s under partly cloudy skies:
So far, January 2017 ranks as the 7th-warmest January on record in Nashville.  Today’s unseasonably warm temperatures could push us into the top five!

We’ll only drop to the mid 40s tonight, then back up to around 60° Wednesday, but with more cloud cover.  We’ll see a slight chance of showers south of I-40 from late Wednesday through the end of the work week:
Cooler temperatures Thursday and Friday, with highs only in the 40s.  Overnight lows will be chilly enough to allow for a few snowflakes or sleet pellets, but the shower chances are so slight that it’s really not worth worrying about at this point.

As the warmer air begins to nudge northward into the Midstate over the weekend, it will bring a better chance of rain Saturday night and Sunday:
Early next week looks warm and still unsettled.  The long-range forecast models are muddled right now — one shows a chance of rain and a few storms on Tuesday, another holds a better thunderstorm chance off until Wednesday.  It’s still a long way off in the extended forecast, so we’ll just keep an eye on it as the forecast evolves.
