Radiant sunshine kick starts the weekend! Southerly winds pulled in warmer temperatures area-wide. Nashville hit a high of 69 degrees — twelve degrees warmer than average.
Check out our viewer photos of the evening… One beautiful sunrise from Edward and another crystal blue sky in Nolensville from Lori. I love when you share your photos with me on Facebook — allows me to share the beauty with everyone!
Since the weather is spectacular, many plan to grill out. Let this be a friendly warning — with dew points in the low 20s, it is incredibly dry out there. Wilson EMA reports six out of control brush/grass fires in Wilson County today. Please DO NOT burn until the humidity rises…
Smooth sailing radar update for your Saturday evening plans. Since things are peaceful, now would be a great time to explain the RED colored radar sweep you seem on the map. That is our very own radar here at WSMV Channel 4.
It is the closest one we have to the surface of the atmosphere and takes about sixty seconds to make a full circle. The National Weather Service radar will sweep through multiple layers of the atmosphere and it usually takes it six minutes to get back to start. One minute versus six minutes is the matter of life and death when it comes to severe thunderstorms. This is why it is so important you tune into Channel 4 when there is a severe weather outbreak. Hope that helps you understand!
Back to the forecast…today was the winner of weekend but Sunday is not looking too shabby. You’ll notice increasing clouds and breezy southwesterly winds but it will be another rain-free and mild day in the upper 60s.
An isolated shower is possible during the evening but most spots will dodge any rain we do see. A few showers work their way in on Monday before the better chance for showers and even thunderstorms arrive on Tuesday. Not the best sunshine forecast on those two days (I gave you a two out of ten). Wednesday will make up, though!
I’ll have the remainder of your weekend forecast and workweek shower/storm timeline coming up on Channel 4 at 6 & 10 tonight! Hope you join me!
