Summery Today, Storms Tomorrow

It was like a summer day today with the afternoon high near 81 degrees. Keep in mind, the average high for this time of year is 67 degrees. The sky was gorgeous, so blue with a few clouds moving in.

Tomorrow will start out beautiful, bright sky and mild temperatures. An approaching front will trigger some showers and thunderstorms by afternoon across Middle Tennessee. The Storm Predication Center has put the mid state in an “Enhanced Risk” zone for severe storms (3 on a 1-5 scale).


The greatest threat would be damaging wind, hail and we can’t rule out isolated tornadoes.


The most likely area for severe storms is along I-65 and eastward.  The storms will sweep east across the area from 1pm to 10pm.  Most likely time for the storms is 2-4 pm in Nashville.  Severe storms are not a given but it’s best to be weather aware tomorrow.

This is truly a cold front, because much cooler air will move in behind it.  Instead of near 80, highs will be in the mid 50s for Thursday with some lingering clouds. Friday and Saturday morning temperatures will be so low, there could be some frost forming.  Take precautions if you have already done some planting.

Sunshine returns in a big way for the weekend. Temperatures will drastically rise in the afternoons each day.


Come out and meet the 4WARN Weather Team Thursday for Surviving the Storm. The first on is at White House Heritage High School.  It’s a fun interactive show and it’s free!


I’ll have the latest tonight on Channel 4 News tonight at 10pm.
