You know the old saying, “what a difference a day makes”. That is true today. Yesterday was 79 degrees and humid with severe thunderstorms, now today we had sunshine and a much cooler and drier 59 degrees. That’s a few degrees below average for this time of year.
This “calm after the storm” will last for a couple of more days as high pressure is in control. Tonight with a partly cloudy sky the low will drop to 39 degrees. We shouldn’t see any freezing across Middle Tennessee.
Tomorrow and Friday the air warms a little more each day. It will be pleasant with a mix of sun and clouds. Enjoy that while you can, as another round of storms is possible this weekend. The thunderstorm threat is Saturday. We will be monitoring them for the potential of being strong to severe. The showers will linger into Sunday morning with some clearing by afternoon. Temperatures remain mild for both days.
Saturday’s storms will likely produce about 1/2″ of rain. Here’s preliminary timing from one our the Futurecast models.
Loosing power is always a possibility during storms. That happened last night in many communities. We can help keep you informed even when the electricity is off. Our live coverage is streamed through our 4WARN app, so you can watch us track the storms from your safe place. The best part…it’s free. If you haven’t already download it today.
I’ll have an update on our weather tonight on Channel 4 News at 10pm.
