Gorgeous sunshine today was welcomed after yesterday’s rain. The sun warmed Nashville to 51 degrees, about average for this time of year. There has been a bit of a roller coaster ride with temperatures this month, but all and all it have been fairly warm. So far it’s the 15th warmest February on record with an average temperature of 47 degrees. The warmest Feb. 1-14 in history in Nashville is 55.3 degrees from 1938.
The outlook for the end of February and beginning of March is for above average temperatures. Expect more flowers to bloom early.
The rest of this week, we are certainly looking for warmer than average temperatures. Each day it will be a little warmer. High pressure will also mean plenty of sunshine.
A weak system will approach on Saturday, that will bring a few showers to Middle Tennessee during the afternoon. Temperatures will still be mild near 60.
The best outdoor day for the weekend is definitely Sunday, expect sunshine and a high near 70. It will be close to the record of 72.
With the clearer sky and mild temperatures, you might want to do a little sky gazing. Tomorrow there is a good pass overhead of the International Space Station. It starts at 6:05pm and last for 6 minutes. It will reach a height of 86 degrees. The ISS will appear in the NW sky and disappear in the SE. The sky should be clear for this tomorrow night.
I’ll have an update on the weather on Channel 4 News at 10pm.
