A Mixed Bag

It was a messy start to the day! With numerous reports of accidents, timing of the rain could have been better for our early morning commuters but good news, rain has officially pushed out of here…

A nice west to east clearing of the clouds has made for  especially beautiful conditions for the western half of town. Little more sunshine = warmer temperatures and that is exactly what satellite imagery confirms here. Check it out…

Low 70s take over the northwest — mid to upper 60s for most everyone else.

The slightest chance for an isolated shower is possible during the day on Thursday and Friday before a decent chance for showers and thunderstorms arrive late in the day on Friday, through the overnight. Here’s the timing of it all…

Some thunderstorms could be strong to severe. Here’s the latest from the Storm Prediction Center — areas sunder the YELLOW (southern Kentucky) fall under a ‘Slight Risk’ (2 our of a 1 to 5 scale) and areas under the GREEN (good chunk of Middle TN) fall under a ‘Marginal Risk’ (1 out of a 1 to 5 scale) for any storm to reach severe criteria. Damaging wind and hail will be the greatest threats with some of the stronger storms. Please stay tuned for updates…paul-severe-risk-region

Besides that, expect above average temperatures to finish off the week. We’re talking 15 to twenty degrees above and a good chance of record breaking warmth by Friday. The last record was 79 degrees set back in 1890. All we have to do is hit 80 to set a new record and that is not out of the ball park by any means.

For those missing cooler temperatures, you are in for a treat. We welcome back February by the weekend. Seasonable temperatures in the low to mid-50s and sunshine to go on top. Heavy coats will be needed if you’re planning on heading out for Saturday night plans, with overnight lows dropping below freezing. dd_weekendoutlook

Chief Meteorologist Lisa Spencer will have updates on the storm timing and warm up before a cool down coming up on Channel 4 at 4, 5 6 & 10 tonight. Be sure to tune in!
