Happy Easter, dear friends! It is Nash and my first Easter living in Middle Tennessee and we are so thankful to be here. Thanks for allowing us to be a part of this special community. We are blessed to call Nashville home. Try not to smile too big, Nash…
Our viewer photo of the night goes to Ralph again, sharing this beautiful snap of Pink Dogwood — how fitting for an Easter Sunday.
So far, the weather has been decent! We’ve seen a few peaks of sunshine and I only have a few storms to point out on our 4WARN Live Doppler Radar (3:59 PM) — as expected, the bulk of the activity mainly impacts our northwestern counties. Nothing severe, just some lightning and a few heavy downpours.
Breezy southerly winds pull in mild temperatures in the upper 70s to lower 80s, anywhere from ten to fifteen degrees warmer than average.
If you’re heading out for Easter dinner this evening, scattered showers and storms are still possible, especially if you are north of I-40. The closer you are to the KY/TN border, the better chance of catching one of them.
A strong area of high pressure over the southeast will serve as a barrier, keeping the same system that’s currently giving us rain chances, around as a stalled out front through early in the week.
Here’s how Futurecast maps out the timing of the rain through late Monday night. Don’t pay too close attention to the location, just refer to it as the general idea and plan to keep the umbrella handy for the next couple of days.
A couple of factors control our daytime highs tomorrow:
- southwesterly winds change direction to be out of the north and
- more clouds and rain is expected (more so than today)
The clouds will serve as a blanket so daytime highs will not be AS warm, but still about five degrees warmer than average for this time of year, in the low to upper 70-degree range.
After Tuesday, spotty showers and storms will be the trend, no washouts or anything large enough to cancel the plans, just keep the umbrella by your side before you head out the door.
I will be tracking showers and storms, alongside your full workweek forecast coming up on Channel 4 at 5 today. I’ll have an update at 10! Wishing you a wonderful rest of your weekend and a very Happy Easter!
