Talking Rain & Storms, plus Updated Eclipse Forecast

A blanket of clouds is what we wake up to early on this Tuesday morning. Besides a few passing showers across eastern Middle Tennessee, it’s been a dry start to the morning…


The clouds aid in bringing warmer than average temperatures, in the low to mid 70s…

Shower and storm chances are far from zero, though. A frontal boundary that bright heavy down pours and storms through Middle Tennessee, has finally lifted north but there’s still moisture left behind. Southern counties have the best chances for the rain (darker shades of green), while most of the remaining region (light green) we’ll see spotty to scattered storms.


I expect most of the rain to taper off by the evening (keeping a 20% chance for lingering isolated showers). If you’re looking for fun festivities with the family, here’s a couple!

The Cheatham County Fair is one and the weather is looking decent. Warm and muggy with again, just that isolated passing shower. WSMV_Fair1

South Central Area Fair in Hohenwald is another hot spot this evening. Low 80s to start, mid 70s to wrap it up.WSMV EVENT 2D

Wednesday and Thursday look to be unsettled before a drier pattern settles in as soon as Friday, lasting through the entire weekend. Every day will be 1. muggy 2. seasonable in the upper 80 to lower 90s. Isolated afternoon showers are possible on Friday through early next week!


Speaking of early next week, the count down is ON! The Total Solar Eclipse is what we all have our eye on, only six days away. So far, the weather is looking FANTASTIC! I give it a seven out of ten. A 20% chance for isolated afternoon storms and a few slow moving clouds. As always, we’ll keep you posted and map out any updates as time gets closer.


We hope you join us at noon for the full timeline of these upcoming showers and thunderstorms.

Let’s make it a great day!
