Fog Machine is Working

The fog machines have been out this morning! So much so that visibility has been zero in some spots, including Downtown. I took a screen grab during our morning show so I could share with you here, in case you slept in…


It is now 9:08 AM and conditions have improved enough to not extend the dense Fog Advisory. That has now expired. Here’s a peak out the window…still struggling but better!VIDEO TVI2

Oranges and reds on our fog tracker indicate the worst spots. Areas where visibility is at 1/2 mile or less. The good news — ample sunshine today will burn the fog off within the morning hours…VIDEO RADAR SPONSOR

Fog has had the spot light but temperatures are second in the running with attention this morning. It is chill-ay! We’ve been as cool as the lower 40s, now in the upper 40s/upper 50s…still cool enough for a warm jacket (says the girl from South Florida…hey, I have roots here).WSMV DMA TEMPS ZOOM1_EffectSquiggle Autoplot

Yesterday, clouds were stubborn. Today, not so much. Plentiful sunshine will warm things back up into the upper 70s, about five degrees above average for this time of the year.DAPHNE iCast Temperature

If you’re looking for some fun plans around town tonight, our own Chris Miller and Dan Thomas will be emceeing the Franklin Wine festival at The Factory. If I was not pregnant, I would be there! 🙂

The event starts at 7 PM and lasts until 10 PM. Weather will be perfect — lows 70s at the start dropping to the lower 60s by the end, so you’ll need to bring along a sweater. Crisp air and clear skies are the cherry on top.


Crisp air is all thanks to dew points in the 50s. This will change so enjoy it! Winds switch gears to be out of the south tomorrow which will funnel in more moisture, hence an increase in humidity.WSMV DMA DEWPOINT STILL1daphne RPM 4KM DEW POINT

It will feel humid but the showers hold off on Saturday. The better chance for spotty showers and thunderstorms arrive on Sunday. Common factor for both days — unseasonably warm days! WSMV WeekendOutlookBASIC

This takes the ‘fall-feel’ out very quickly but not for long…temperatures nose dive from a high of 86 on Saturday to a high of 67 on Monday. This is the cooler air filtering in behind the system responsible for the rain. Some like, some not so much. In any case, we have weather that caters to both. 🙂WSMV 7 Day AM

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend! I’ll see you all bright, or I should dark and early at 4 am on Monday morning!
