The Unsettled Pattern Continues

Here we go again…yes another afternoon and evening of rain and thunderstorms.  Again there were estimates of 2″-3″ of rain across Middle Tennessee.  There were several reports of small hail, gusty winds and flash flooding.

More rain and thunderstorms the rest of this evening, but like last night they will diminish in intensity as the night goes on. Tomorrow morning there will be a shower of two possible along with some fog.  Tomorrow afternoon more areas of rain and thunderstorms will develop, but I don’t expect them to be as intense or numerous as the past two days.  Here’s the latest Futurecast depiction.

The front that is triggering this activity will wash out, so Wednesday night and most of Thursday should be dry.  Another weak front will bring more activity on Thursday night and Friday.  Friday’s temperatures will reflect the front passing by.

Saturday a stronger system will bring the potential of strong thunderstorms. We’ll keep updating you on the potential for those storms to be severe. Right now it looks like the instability ahead of the front along with some wind shear could set the right conditions.


Good time to remind you of Surviving the Storm, this week, the team goes to Pulaski.  We’ll be a New Zion Baptist Church. Come on out for our free weather safety show.


I’ll have an update on Channel 4 News at 10pm.
