My my, what a fantastic start to our Easter holiday weekend! Nashville hit a high of 86 degrees…just one degree shy of tying the last record set back in 1936. Feels like summer, minus the humidity! I’m loving it.
Check out these beauties. A big thanks to our own Ralph here at Channel 4 for snapping and sharing them with all of us. So pretty.
Our Viewer Photo of the night goes to sweet Lina Moon, out on a mission to collect all the Easter eggs! Perfect day for it!
Current temperatures (8:22 PM) are running comfy and warm in the low to mid-70s…
Here’s where the story changes (reminder: I’m just a messenger)…
Frontal boundary currently draped from the central plains south and west through northwestern Missouri and Kansas continues pushing southeast, headed our way.
Easter Sunday brings a decent chance for showers and thunderstorms but some areas will see more and others may even dodge the rain entirely.
I’m expecting northwestern Middle Tennessee to get the greatest impact from the shower and storm activity. Southeastern portions of the Mid State will remain the driest.
We could see an isolated early morning shower but the better chance arrive during the afternoon into the evening, with areas west of I-65 seeing the initial batch. Here’s the timing with Futurecast. It gives a decent general idea…
The Storm Prediction Center updates northwestern Middle Tennessee to fit under a ‘Marginal Risk’ for any storms to reach severe criteria (1 on a 1-5 scale). Brief damaging winds will be the greatest threat.
The same front will stall out, keeping shower and storm chances in the picture early week. Some storms could be on the stronger side on Monday so you’ll want to have an eye to the sky.
I’ll have the full shower and storm timeline coming up on Channel 4 at 10 tonight. Hope you join me! Happy Easter!
