Summery Feel Holds on as Autumn Closes In

A summery feel will hold on through the last several days of the season.  In fact, it’ll still feel like summer even after fall kicks off this Friday!

Outdoors early on this Saturday morning (as of 8am), temperatures are in the 60s.

Fog’s an issue in some areas….like Carthage.  Where it’s especially foggy, count on improvement in the visibility by 9am.

Downtown Nashville is nice & bright!

Notice how tranquil the weather is in the South, Mid South, Midwest, & Plains.

That means we’ll have uneventful weather for a while to come…..and a lot of heat, too!

Highs this afternoon will look like this.

Looking for something fun to do today?

There’s the St. Jude Run/Walk that gets underway in 30 minutes at Nissan Stadium.  You could go cheer on the participants…or even get involved (if you’re quick!).

In Lebanon, at Neal Farm, there’s the Tough Mudder — an obstacle course through the mud.  Recent rain from Harvey & Irma are likely helping make that possible.

Late this afternoon into tonight, downtown Nashville (Nissan Stadium) will host the Music City Hot Air Balloon Festival.  That runs from 4pm until 9pm.  It’ll be so beautiful to see those balloons rising with the setting sun and Nashville skyline in the background!  If you go, you’ll be able to enjoy live music, a kids’ zone, beer tent, food trucks, craft vendors, in addition to the spectacular sight of all those balloons!

There are also a few college football games.  Take a look…

This coming week, we expect little change overall.  The best rain chance (for pop-up showers and storms) will occur on Tuesday and Wednesday….although it’ll still be relatively low — 30%.

Join Alan Frio and me on News 4 at 8:30am.  We’ll talk more about that, check in on two systems in the tropics that could in time impact the United States, and have a look at your overnight news.
