Grab an Umbrella!

If you thought it was abnormally chilly when you stepped out the door today, you were right! In fact, we are in line to set a new record…for a coolest high record! May 5th, 1917 he hit a record for the coolest high, at 56 degrees. It is now 2:02 pm and Nashville only sits at 50.

Here’s what’s helping….a blanket of clouds. It aids in blocking solar radiation from warming the surface of the earth. Doing a great job of that today, clouds!

Clouds are also doing a great job of squeezing out some rain drops. Nothing heavy, no storms, just light steady widespread showers…VIDEO RADAR

We’ve seen rainfall totals as high as two inches in some localized spots. Here’s an idea of who has seen the most rain over the past twenty four hours…

Saturday brings a few afternoon showers but nothing severe or anything to worry about (phew). Temperatures will rebound back into the upper 60s to lower 70s, marching closer to average which is 75 for this time of year.DAPHNE iCast Temperature

Another thing to note! Not the best day for a hat. Winds will pick up, gusting as high as 30 mph at times throughout the day.daphne RPM WIND GUSTS

I’ll be tracking showers and will have updates on your weekend forecast coming up on Channel 4 at 4 and 4:30 today!WSMV 7 Day AM

    OK, almost certainly we got a record! (unless the temperature will increase before midnight, which is unlikely). So far, the temps have not been higher than 54, 2 degrees lower than the previous record, set exactly a century ago, in what still is the coldest May ever. This would be the first low-temperature record for Nashville since October 3, 2015.

    So, yesterday, as stated above, Nashville saw its first low-temperature record in just over 19 months. That came after a frankly staggering streak of 43(!) high-temperature records for the daily maximum, minimum, and daily mean values. All forecasts indicate we will not experience exceptional heat in the foreseeable future (that’s probably no more than a week). Maybe this will be the first rather normal month in exactly a year and, possibly, a welcome end to 15 months of persistent warmth? It’s far too early to make such predictions, of course, but one can always hope.
