Storms Expected on Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!  I wish we had better weather for you.  That said, it won’t be a washout, so press on with your plans.  Just remain “weather aware”.

Outdoors as of 7am on this Sunday morning, it’s warm and muggy with temperatures in the 70s.


While most areas are cloudy, there’s SOME sunshine here and there.


It’ll be variably cloudy today (more sun at times…and then more clouds at others).  The sunshine we DO have will help warm us up into the 80s.


That warmer air and all the humidity in place will aid in firing storms through the day, but especially this afternoon.

Outdoors this morning (7:31am now), there’s very little rain — just a few showers along the TN/KY line…and a couple surrounding Carthage.


Look at all the rain lining up back to the west, however!  As that slides eastward, it’ll thicken up in coverage even more.


Here’s a detailed look at your rain chance today…

DT DAYPART RainChances

A few storms this afternoon could turn severe, producing damaging wind gusts.  That’ll be the exception though, as there’s not much wind energy in the atmosphere.


As for timing, storms are most likely to kick off in and around Nashville early this afternoon.  Check out the rain’s timing for the rest of the area, too.  Bear in mind, it won’t go EXACTLY this way.  It’ll probably be similar however.

In light of the fact that today won’t be a complete washout, if you have outdoor plans that you’re going to press on with, just ensure you remain on top of the weather.  One way to do that is by downloading and using the FREE 4WARN Weather app.  The WSMV app is also fantastic for tracking the weather…and also free!  Both have access to 4WARN Live Doppler Radar.  Daphne DeLoren will be monitoring for and tracking any storms that form this afternoon & tonight.  She’ll have updates as warranted on social media and on WSMV-TV Channel 4.

FUTURECAST tonight shows rain continuing off and on…and into tomorrow, too.  By late tomorrow afternoon, rain will have exited all of Middle Tennessee.

Coming up this evening on Channel 4 News at 5pm, Daphne DeLoren will get you the latest on the showers and thunderstorms moving through.
