After a cloudy start, this Memorial Day will turn out to be quite nice all in all.
Outdoors now, clouds are breaking in Nashville. It’s partly cloudy northwest of town. Southeast of town, clouds are still in firm control.
4WARN Live Doppler Radar’s picking up on a few showers (as of 8:50am) too….over southern Middle Tennessee.
That’s where the best rain chance will be today. It won’t rain there the whole day, but we will have some rain to deal with.
Rain will come from a parent system sliding by to our south this morning.
Notice the cloud shield with it.
The afternoon will be the sunniest part of the day, allowing temperatures to climb from their 9am levels shown here…
To these highs, late this afternoon.
The Nashville Sounds have a home game today at First Tennessee Park at 12:05pm. Weather for that looks very good!
Pools will be packed this afternoon, with very few problems for weather as a whole.
Of course, the Nashville Predators face off against the Penguins in Pittsburgh for Game #1 of the Stanley Cup Final tonight. There will be a party in Walk of Fame Park, kicking off at 4pm. The Preds Plaza Party starts at 6:30pm. Expect food trucks, music, and an energetic, packed downtown Nashville. Here’s that forecast:
Down the road, isolated showers and storms are likely tomorrow and Wednesday afternoons. Thursday’s best rain chance also arrives late in the day, coming in from the west in the form of scattered showers and storms. Then, Friday into the weekend will become a bit more unsettled with an even better chance for hit or miss storms. We’ll have more clouds over that period, too.
