Temperature Ladder Climbs

Take two! Our second day straight of refreshing sunshine made for a beautiful February day. Our very own Dan Thomas snapped and shared his sunset picture with me just before our 5 o’clock newscast. Wow and wow. 🙂


Clouds slowly but surely took over our Middle Tennessee sky and a weak disturbance brings scattered rain showers, mainly to our southwestern counties…video-tvi

Radar update (8:32 pm) — not a whole lot of movement with this rain, just a very slow motion towards the east. video-radar

Areas south of I-40 continue to have the best chance for spotty rain overnight into the very early morning on Sunday. After that? Decreasing clouds and warmer highs, in the upper 50s! Oh yeah.dd-rpm-12km-eveningdd-rpm-12km-evening2dd-rpm-12km-evening3dd-rpm-12km-evening4

Our next approaching system wastes no time. Initially, a warm front will bring scattered rain into the Mid State, from west to east starting on Monday morning. Here’s the timing…dd-rpm-12km-evening5dd-rpm-12km-evening6dd-rpm-12km-evening7

A secondary cold front swings through after and this one has a bit more steam. Showers and thunderstorms march through Monday overnight into Tuesday. Some storms could be strong to potentially severe so this one will be one to watch…dd-rpm-12km-evening8dd-rpm-12km-evening9


Rainfall totals are expected to fall between 0.5″ and 1.5.” Nashville currently sits at a 0.98″ deficit since the first of the year. Not desperate for the rain but we’ll take it!daphne-ecmwf-rain

Besides that, we are in for a WARM up! Unseasonably warm upper 50s on Sunday hopscotch into the lower 60s on Monday before a twenty degree above average upper 60 day arrives by Tuesday. Once that cold front does its thing and gets out, we’ll quickly drop…again. Upper 40s by mid-week then lower 40s by Thursday. With the cooler temperatures, a slight chance for a rain/snow mix is possible by Thursday.wsmv-4-plus-4-pm

I’ll have the full shower timeline coming up on Channel 4 at 10 tonight! Be sure to join Meteorologist Dan Thomas bright and early tomorrow morning for updates!

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!
