Sunny Stretch Ending — Rain’s About to Return

On Saturday I said “Here comes the sun!”  Now, it’s more fitting to say “Here comes the rain!”  Clouds are moving in.  Rain will return to our area tomorrow.

Outdoors now (as of 3pm, Monday), it’s still plenty bright over Nashville and many surrounding communities!

A batch of cirrus clouds is moving through…

Much more cloudiness is lurking just west however, with our next rain system.

Right now, rain is limited.  There are some developing showers and storms over western Arkansas and southeast Oklahoma…

Because of the sunshine, it’s nice & warm!  It actually feels more like late May than early April.

This evening, clouds will increase, but rain will steer clear of our area.  The first showers should begin to move in just before dawn over our western communities.

Here’s a look at how one computer model is handling the evolution of this weather system on the way.  Notice how tomorrow afternoon, some thunderstorms with locally heavy downpours are likely.  SO…some spots will get soaked, while others remain mostly dry.

In spite of this rain, we have a burn alert for south central Kentucky today.  It’s called a Red Flag Warning.  There, over a handful of our counties, wildfire potential is high today.

Here’s a look at what’s contributing to this wildfire danger today.

Coming up this evening on Channel 4 News, beginning at 4pm, we’ll tell you more about tomorrow’s rain.  We’ll also look at when rain’s most likely as we head into the upcoming Easter weekend.  We hope you join us!
