Today will be a little unsettled. We’ll have spotty showers popping up here and there. Then tomorrow, the rain will be gone and humidity will decrease some too.
Outdoors as of 8am it’s mostly cloudy. There are a few sunny breaks, but most of us are dealing with clouds.
Temperatures are in the 70s. It’s very humid, as well.
4WARN Live Doppler Radar, Middle Tennessee’s only live radar, shows some rain over our northeastern counties, gradually moving toward the Cumberland Plateau.
As the day progresses and the air warms, scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will develop, partially in response to a weak cold front moving through. Notice how late morning through the afternoon looks to produce our best chance for rain.
With all the clouds and the expected areas of rain, temperatures should remain below 90 again!
The East Nashville Tomato Art Fest will be a fun one to take in today. Again, while there could be a few showers, for the most part the weather will cooperate.
The Decatur, Macon, Williamson, and Putnam County fairs all continue today too. Here’s Williamson’s forecast:
In Putnam County, showers will be winding down tonight making for a fun evening on the midway!
FUTURECAST shows how rain showers will be most prevalent around the middle-latter part of today…
Behind the cold front, clouds will break some overnight. If you like, go outdoors and see if they part enough in your area to let you witness the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower. Meteors will be traveling in all directions across the sky. However, they’ll all emanate from constellation, Perseus, the radiant point of which will be rising out of the northeastern sky. Try to avoid any lights nearby while viewing. The moon won’t help, but it’ll take several hours for it to rise, which of course will work in our favor.
Tomorrow, we’ll have a mix of clouds and sunshine with the accent on clouds at times as a weak weather system now over the Plains states moves into our area.
