Cloudy, rainy and soupy start to our Tuesday morning!
Showers continue marching through the Mid State, from SW to NE (8:38am)…
Thick clouds lead to an unseasonably warm start! Talking 23 degrees ABOVE average in Nashville.
Upper 60s to lower 70s will warm into the lower 80-degree range for an afternoon high…Mhmm still feels like late summer!
When you step out the door, the first thing you’ll likely notice is the humidity. Dew points are getting real on us again. Upper 60s to lower 70s is in the oppressive range but it’s not for long.
Drier, far less humid air behind a passing cold front works its way in as soon as tomorrow!
You’ll want to keep an umbrella handy today as showers and thunderstorms will be likely through the early evening. In fact, some storms could be on the stronger side. Though the severe weather threat is not high, it’s not impossible. Areas north and west of Nashville will have the greatest chance of seeing the development of a severe thunderstorm or two. Damaging winds and localized flooding will be the greatest threat, especially during the afternoon to early evening.
Besides isolated storms tonight into early Wednesday morning, much drier conditions knock on our door step. Expecting decreasing clouds as soon as Wednesday with a stronger breakthrough of sunshine by Thursday lasting through Saturday. A very bright light. 🙂
Here’s a peak to the days ahead. Meteorologist Dan Thomas will be tracking the rain at noon today.
Stay dry and weather-aware but most importantly, have a wonderful day!
