Plenty of Spring Showers & Thunderstorms This Week

Spring showers and thunderstorms will be plentiful this week.  There will even be some today.  In fact, light showers are moving through eastern Middle Tennessee right now.  Take a look at 4WARN Live Doppler Radar (as of 7:45am)…

Temperatures are in the 50s, so it’s cool.  If you’re about to venture out, you’ll probably want to take a light jacket.

It’s cloudy for the majority of the Mid State.  However, a few (and I mean very few) of you are enjoying a little early morning sunshine.

Peeks of sunshine should become a little more prevalent this afternoon.  With that, we’ll have a high in Nashville of 74 degrees.

Across the rest of the area, count on top temps in the upper 60s to middle 70s.

More rain’s in the forecast for Monday.  During the morning, we’ll have a few passing light showers.  Later in the day though, count on a better chance that showers and storms will develop.

A few storms on Monday could be severe with damaging wind and hail.  It won’t be a big outbreak of severe weather, but we should have more than we had yesterday (when we received just one report of wind damage, east of Pulaski, TN).  The Storm Prediction Center has us in a Slight Threat for severe storms on Monday afternoon and evening, which seems reasonable given the anticipated warmth, humidity, wind field, and dynamics in the upper atmosphere.

Additional storms are likely to develop Thursday, with rain lingering through Friday.

SO….make sure at the very least your wipers are in good enough shape to get you through the week.  If you’re a home owner and you haven’t fertilized your lawn yet, today would be perfect to do that, so it can get soaked in.

Coming up on Channel 4 News Today….between 8am and 9am, I’ll have more on the storm threat for tomorrow and Thursday.  We’ll also touch on what I expect for weather NEXT weekend.  We hope you join us!
