A deceiving day! Mood boosting sunshine and dry conditions for every spot in Middle Tennessee. Here’s a peak outside our Downtown camera…

As expected, Nashville breaks a temperature record today — currently at 80 degrees (2:36 PM).

Last record of 77 degrees was set back in 1890. All time highest record in February was 84 degrees, set back in 1962 and we are not far from it!

Breezy southerly winds ahead of an approaching cold front are partially responsible for this crazy warmth. If you’ve been outside at any point today,  you quickly realized it is not the day for the hat! Winds are cranking, with occasional gusts exceeding 30 mph.

As the cold front continues pushing eastward, it will brings showers and strong to potentially severe thunderstorms with it.

Here’s the latest from the Storm Prediction Center:

‘Slight Risk’ (2 out of a 1 to 5 scale) has been expanded a bit further south, including a good chunk of areas east of I-65.daphne-severe-risk-region

Though the greatest impact will be damaging straight line winds, an isolated tornado and hail cannot be ruled out with this system. Areas east of I-65 will have the greatest threat of seeing some of these stronger storms blossom out.

I’m in agreement! Bulk of the activity pushes out just after 1 AM on Saturday. After that? Much cooler air filters in behind the cold front on Saturday. You’ll see more sunshine but it will come at the cost of unseasonably chilly upper 40s during the day and sub-freezing Saturday night into early Sunday morning. Ouch! It is a temp shock.wsmv-4-plus-4-pm
