TGIF Sunshine before Weekend Storms

What an incredibly beautiful start to our FRIDAY! I took a few screen grabs of the sunrise and had to share with you…

A shilly start to the morning in the low to upper 50s warm up very quickly! It is only 7:52 AM and many spots have broke the 60-degree mark…

An approaching system on Saturday really amps up the moisture, paving way for a soupy weekend ahead. Upper 60s to lower 70s….please stop now.PAUL RPM 4KM DEW POINT

Outdoor TGIF plans are a two thumbs up for this evening — rain-free and warm in the lower 80s. Our first chance of rain and storms arrive on Saturday morning.

Here’s the timing…

Some of these storms could by strong to severe with damaging wind, hail and heavy downpours as the greatest threats…

Areas under the YELLOW are under a ‘Slight Risk’ (2 on a 1 to 5 scale) of storms reaching severe criteria. The great threat on Saturday will be just west of Middle Tenessee, for areas under the ORANGE color, which is an ‘Enhanced Risk’ (3 on a 1 to 5 scale) of storms reaching severe criteria. Southeastern Middle Tennessee has a lesser threat on Sunday but still in the ball park, under a ‘Marginal Risk’ (1 on a 1 to 5 scale).WSMV 7 Day AM

Besides a few showers for our southeastern counties, Monday is looking fantastic to break out the BBQ for Memorial Day.

I’ll have the full weekend shower and storm timeline coming up on Channel4 at noon today!
