After two days of flash flooding across Middle Tennessee, today was much drier. The showers and thunderstorms were fewer and less intense. The increase in sunshine allowed temperatures to soar to 83 degrees in Nashville. That is just over 10 degrees above the average of 72 degrees.
Now the rain has diminished and you can even catch a glimpse of Mars out tonight.
Most of the day tomorrow will be dry, but the rain break won’t last long. Futurecast shows only a few showers in the afternoon. A better chance of rain and thunderstorms will return Thursday night.
The rain chance will increase into Friday. Temperatures will drop back to the mid 70s with the increase in clouds and showers. The Storm Prediction Center has put Middle Tennessee in a Marginal risk zone for severe weather for Friday.
A stronger system will approach Saturday, some of those storms could be strong to severe. We’ll keep you updated as that is a few days off. The front will leave some cooler air for Sunday and a few showers.
Here’s the latest Futurecast depiction for Friday into Saturday.
I’m watching the weather myself as I am emcee for the Hike2Heal to raise money for healthcare for children attending Raise the Roof Academy in Uganda. Come out and join me.
I’ll have an update on Channel 4 News at 10pm.
