Good morning CLOUDS and very warm temperatures — running anywhere from fifteen to twenty degrees WARMER than average for this time of year, in the low to upper 60s.
A passing cold front pulls in widely scattered showers and storms, all marching on a northeasterly path (8:16 am as I type here)…
You’ll want to grab an umbrella and keep it handy as you head out there door, as I expect this few storms to increase in number by the afternoon into the evening. A ‘Marginal Risk’ for severe storms (1 on a 1 to 5 scale) covers our entire state but the best chance remains for areas along and south of I-40. Damaging winds and localized flooding remain the greatest threats…
Moisture from the same cold front combines with an upper level system on Saturday, keeping a decent chance for showers and storms (90%), especially during the morning to early afternoon.
Here’s the timing…
You can expect a decent soaking out of this event — anywhere from 0.5″ to 2.5″ through Sunday evening, which can only help our 2.91″ deficit of rain in Nashville.
Here’s re-cap of your weekend forecast — stormy, rainy & seasonable on Saturday. Rainy & cooler than average on Sunday.
Hang tight for a breakthrough of sunshine! It will be here before you know and perfect timing for any Monday blues.
I’ll have the full weekend timeline coming up on Channel 4 at noon today! Hope you join me!
