Wowie! What a delightful finish to the weekend! We started the day with plenty of cloud cover but the sunshine did its thing and quickly took the spot light by the late morning to early afternoon. Check out these cutie patooties enjoying their Sunday fun day. My morning looked very similar. 🙂
A special thanks to viewer Shawn for capturing and sharing this with our team at pix.wsmv.com. I encourage you to to the same!
With enough sunshine, Nashville managed to touch 74 for a high today — nine degrees above average for late March. Not bad.
Sunshine party comes to an end as soon as Monday. See the system off towards the west? Over Kansas and Oklahoma? That mess is headed our way.
The Storm Prediction Center has a good chunk of Middle Tennessee under a ‘Slight Risk’ (YELLOW) for severe weather (2 out of a 1 to 5 scale), mainly spread over I-65 and west. Areas further east under the GREEN remain under a ‘Marginal Risk.’ Damaging winds, and hail will be the greatest threat with some of the strongest storms. Though the threat for tornadoes remain low, an isolated one is not out of question.
The good news? Our morning commute is in the clear. Moisture ahead of the system could pull in a few showers late morning. The bad news?The worst of the storm is expected during prime evening commute time.
Check it out…
The worst of things are expected to fizzle out before midnight with lingering showers taking over overnight into Tuesday morning.
If you have not already, please be sure to download our FREE and handy ‘WSMV WX’ app. This will help keep you ahead of the storm. You’ll want to make sure Severe Weather Alerts are turned ON, like so –>
With all this said, we are under a 4WARN WEATHER ALERT on Monday. Please be tuned in for updates as the day progresses. The second half of Tuesday and Wednesday are looking lovely. Thursday and Friday brings our next chance for showers and thunderstorms before a weekend break arrives!
I’ll have the full storm timeline coming up on Channel 4 at 10 tonight! Hope you join!
