Unsettled weather has been with us for a while now. It looks like we’ll see a change in this pattern on Friday, continuing into the weekend.
Outdoors as of 7;10am, showers and thunderstorms were traveling eastward along the I-40 corridor, causing ponding and big puddles for the morning commute. Here are a couple of views of 4WARN Live Doppler Radar.
Look at what the rain has done to visibility downtown…
Temperatures are in the 70s and it’s tremendously humid.
Through today, we’ll have broken clouds with building heat and humidity. Widely scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop especially this afternoon, briefly cooling those areas where they pass. FUTURECAST shows some popping up here and there…
Highs this afternoon will be around 90. Of course, with the very high humidity, it’ll feel even hotter.
This evening, showers and storms will become more sparse, so weather for the South Central Area Fair looks good! Weather for the Cheatham County Fair looks similar. Both fairs continue through Saturday.
Our chance for rain will actually increase late tomorrow and tomorrow night as a cold front moves into and through Middle Tennessee. Then, the likelihood for rain will decrease as we head into Friday and carry into the weekend. That means the sky will brighten and sunshine will become more prominent.
As for the Total Solar Eclipse…our weather still looks fair. Conditions don’t appear perfect. They don’t look bad either. We’ll likely have scattered-broken coverage of fair weather/puffy clouds that afternoon. Only isolated showers and thunderstorms are expected.
Join me on News 4 at noon today. I’ll track any developing showers and thunderstorms and show you where they’re headed. We’ll also have an update on weather for this weekend into Monday, Eclipse Day!
Until then, have a good one!
