After more than a foot of rain in spots and three confirmed tornadoes in Middle Tennessee, all in association with the remnants of Harvey, the weather will finally improve today!
Over Nashville as of 8am, the clouds are just beginning to break up.
However, in Clarksville and for many in western Middle Tennessee, the sun is shining brightly!
This satellite image shows the cloud clearing line moving in from the west.
Temperatures are pleasant, in the 50s.
There’s still rain on 4WARN Live Doppler Radar. That’ll move out, exiting our easternmost counties, by early afternoon at the latest.
FUTURECAST shows the trend of the clouds and rain today — to gradually get out of here!
Looking for something fun to do to take advantage of the nicer weather? Here are a couple options:
Live on the Green takes place at Public Square from 1pm until 11pm, with non-stop great live music!
The Internashional Food Crawl is on Nolensville Pike between 12n and 4pm this afternoon. It begins at Cafe Mariachi, which is at 3955 Nolensville Pike. Check online for tickets if you don’t have them all ready, just to ensure it’s not sold out.
It’s also National Tailgating Day! Vanderbilt, MTSU, and WKU all play this evening.
High temperatures this afternoon will be in the 70s for most. Some communities on the Upper Cumberland Plateau will likely hold in the 60s though, as clouds linger there longer.
Tomorrow, I expect 85 degrees for a high. On Monday — Labor Day — it should be even warmer…in the mid-upper 80s!
Alan Frio and I are back on TV on News 4 this morning between 9am and 9:30am. Join us then to hear about our next strong cold front headed to the Mid State. I’ll also have the latest on Hurricane Irma, which could hit the United States next weekend!
