Spring-like showers moving across Middle Tennessee today and tonight. It’s been cloudy throughout the day, holding temperatures down somewhat, but still well above average. The highest hourly temperatures at the Nashville airport was 70 degrees. When I was out walking this morning I captured another sign of this incredible warm winter. These trees are in full bloom. We do have more warm days ahead but there is also some cooler air moving in for the weekend.
First things first, the showers will continue tonight, they will be scattered. By morning there will be a few lingering raindrops. But clearing will take place in the afternoon and the temperature will be near 70 again. Here’s the latest Furturecast.
A ridge of high pressure builds back in Thursday so get ready for another really warm day in the mid 70s with a lot of sunshine. It won’t break a record but it will be well above the norm.
Friday will come close to the record in the upper 70s. The winds will pick up in advance of a cold front. The front will trigger some strong to possibly severe thunderstorms.
Saturday will feel more like February…a north wind ushers in colder air bringing high back to average in the mid 50s.
Interesting timing on that as the annual Hab-a-Splash to benefit Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury is set to take place on Saturday. It’s happening at the Westhaven Residents’ Club in Franklin. Snowbird and I will be there. This FREE, family-friendly event will include children’s activities, a snow machine, community/vendor booths, and food trucks and will culminate with warm-hearted volunteers taking a frosty dip into Westhaven’s outdoor pool to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity’s affordable housing mission.

I’ll have an update on the weather for the rest of the week on Channel 4 News at 10pm.
