Our Weather: 4 Things to Know

There are 4 things you should know about our weather to stay on top of the big changes beginning to take place right now.

They are…

1) Keep your umbrella nearby.  Occasional rain’s expected for several days.

Early this morning, showers continue to push through the Mid State.  Here’s a look at 4WARN Live Doppler Radar as of 5am.  The heaviest rain is over southern Middle Tennessee, sliding farther southward.


For the rest of today, expect just a couple light showers with lots of clouds.

Tonight, another round of rain will move through.  A few thunderstorms will also occur over southern Middle Tennessee.

Spotty showers will be possible again Wednesday into early Thursday primarily over our southern counties.

2) Colder air’s taking over gradually.

After tying the record high temperature yesterday of 82 degrees, much cooler air’s now settling in.  A cold front approaching Nashville will drift southward a bit more before stalling out later this morning.


With that front hanging around, it’ll remain unsettled and cool with the coolest air along the TN/KY line.

Tomorrow will be even cooler.  Then, Wednesday, we’ll only have highs in the 50s!

3) Frost will return Friday morning!

With this airmass change, frost will be possible again on Friday morning.  SO…if you have plants you’re trying to hang on to, you’ll want to protect them or bring them in sometime on Thursday.  Keep them covered or inside through Saturday morning, as early Saturday will be frosty in many areas too.


4) The weekend looks pleasant and seasonable….for the most part.

Right now, the weekend looks seasonably cool.  Saturday, Veterans Day, looks great!  Sunday will feature a few more clouds and possibly a few showers.  All in all though, I think you’ll be pleased with the weather this weekend.

    Resending this, as an earlier attempt, apparently didn’t go through. On Sunday we didn’t just tie the record maximum temperature of 82 but, also, set the record for the warmest ever day recorded in the month of November. With the minimum of 68, the daily mean was 75. Previously, the highest daily mean for the month was 74.5, observed in 1971 (11-1) and 1961 (11-2).
