April 14: Easter Weekend, Daily Links


More unseasonably warm weather in the forecast, with near-record high temperatures this afternoon.  We’ll reach the mid 80s under partly cloudy skies:

Today’s record is 88, set in 2006.  Just a very slight chance of a pop-up shower today — the HRRR model’s radar simulation shows a few radar freckles, but nothing that should force you to re-arrange any outdoor plans:

More of the same Saturday…very slight shower chance, with highs in the mid 80s:

A chance of scattered showers and a few non-severe storms moves in for Easter Sunday:

The best chance of rain Easter morning will be to the northwest of Nashville — the RPM model’s radar simulation shows that through midday:

The rain chances spread across the rest of the Midstate in the afternoon and evening:

That storm system will get stuck nearby next week, leaving us with a good chance of scattered showers and (still non-severe) storms Monday and Tuesday:

Still warm for the foreseeable future, even with the rain chances next week.  Normal highs in mid-April are in the low 70s, so even our coolest day will be above-average.
