Changeable Weather This Weekend

This weekend will start summery, but turn much cooler as it comes to a close.  In between, expect some rain.

Outdoors as of 7am today, temperatures are in the 50s and 60s.


Most areas have sunshine…


However, over southern Middle Tennessee there’s a deck of low clouds and even some fog.  4WARN Live Doppler Radar in fog tracking mode shows visibility around 1/2 mile in Bedford County (orange shading).  The yellow color indicates where there’s thin fog.


A developing southerly wind will make it much warmer this afternoon.  Here’s a look at highs.

It’ll turn more humid, too.  Notice dew points (what we use to quantify how muggy it feels) will climb into the mid 60s by late afternoon, adding to that summertime feel!

FUTURECAST shows just a few clouds across the area today.  There’s only a 5-10% chance for a shower on the Cumberland Plateau between 2pm and 6pm.

Tomorrow will bring a much better chance for rain, however.  That weather maker will come our way from the Plains.  Notice all the showers between Omaha and Kansas City…


As that batch of moisture pushes through, we’ll have a round of showers.  East of I-65 there probably will even be a few thundershowers during Sunday afternoon.  Once that rain pushes east of our area, cooler air will begin to filter in.

Here’s a look at the rain’s timing for tomorrow…

By Monday and Tuesday, it’ll feel like the middle of fall!  Temperatures will be below average then for a change.  Join us on News 4 at 8:30am until 9am for more on that…and to find out when our next chance for rain will be after tomorrow.
