Today will be another springlike day. Temperatures will soar to around 80 this afternoon. Then, tonight, thunderstorms will move in.
Outdoors early this morning, it’s cloudy for most. Here’s the view from east of downtown Nashville as of 7:20am.
From above, notice all the clouds. In contrast to yesterday though, it’s fog-free!
Temperatures and humidity make it feel more like May or even early June outdoors now. As of 7am…
Dew points are in the 60s, so it’s muggy for November. We’ll keep this humid feel into tomorrow, before it decreases Tuesday & especially Wednesday.
This afternoon, highs will be in the upper 70s and lowermost 80s. The record high in Nashville today is 82, set back in 1975. We’ll be very close!
As for rain….it’s dry now. This afternoon, there’s just a remote chance for a shower. Our friends in southwest Kentucky have the best chance of getting wet briefly, but even there it’s still just 20%.
The rain chance ramps up tonight as storms move in from the Midwest. If you’re driving in that direction today, be careful. Southern and central Illinois, Indiana, Missouri….and western Kentucky will have a severe weather outbreak this afternoon. Remnants of those storms will be what slides down into our area tonight. Our risk for severe weather is the lowest on the threat scale, termed “marginal”.
Notice how it’s higher farther north.
Take a look at FUTURECAST for tonight. It shows the strongest storms moving toward the TN/KY line just after midnight, eventually settling down toward Nashville as they gradually weaken around 3am. By dawn tomorrow, the best chance for thunderstorms will be over southern Middle Tennessee. Elsewhere, we’ll have clouds and widely scattered showers.
Notice the chance for rain will remain high through Tuesday. There could even be a few showers Wednesday and early Thursday.
It’s during that time that the coolest air of the week will arrive. Highs on both Wednesday and Thursday will only be in the 50s!
