Summery Today….Stormy Tomorrow

Summery weather’s in store for today.  Then, tomorrow, thunderstorms will be the big weather story.

In the wake of yesterday’s rain with Tropical Storm Nate (which has fallen apart since then), there’s plenty of lingering moisture with low clouds, spotty drizzle, and some fog.  As of 8:30am, this is the latest look at 4WARN Live Doppler Radar in fog tracking mode.


A Dense Fog Advisory remains in effect until 9am for West Tennessee and southwest Kentucky.


We’ve even seen a couple showers pop up along the Tennessee River, near HWY 641.  Those are sliding eastward and won’t amount to much.


Temperatures are a whopping 20+ degrees above average right now!  The average low for today is just 51.


This is the latest view of our cloud cover.  Holes are developing in spots, letting through some sunshine.


Later today, the sky will brighten considerably, allowing temperatures to soar into the 80s!

DT 4 RPM 12KM Temperature

FUTURECAST shows the clearing trend through the day.

Our next weather system will move in tomorrow.  It’s that cluster of clouds over the Plains and Rockies right now.


That system will kick off a few rounds of showers and thunderstorms throughout the Mid State on Tuesday.  Expect areas of rain to begin developing during the wee hours of the morning.  Some of you will have to deal with wet roads and downpours for the morning drive.  If we get enough heating during the late morning and early afternoon, additional storms that fire during the afternoon could become strong-severe with damaging wind gusts.  The area with the greatest likelihood of this occurring is northwest of Nashville.  FUTURECAST seems to have a good handle on how this will all go down.  As I usually point out, the weather won’t evolve exactly this way (in terms of placement of individual storms/downpours).  However, you get the idea from it that showers and storms will be scattered, as they move northeastward.

Tomorrow evening, most of the rain will be east of Nashville making for nice weather for the Nashville Predators home opener against the Philadelphia Flyers, at 7pm at Bridgestone Arena!


Join me later today on News 4 at noon.  I’ll have an update on the timing and intensity of the storms we expect tomorrow!
