Beautiful weather after the holiday. High pressure will keep things dry and mild in the afternoons with highs in the mid 60s. Today was just that, it was 10 degrees above the average at 65°. Tonight the clear sky and light south wind will keep our low in the upper 30s in Nashville. It was the perfect night for lighting the tree at the Tennessee State Capitol.
Our temperatures will stay above average for several days. Folks in the Southern Plains states and Midwest will have record warm temperatures.
If you get up before the sun, you may want to check out a few planets and the star Spica. Mars and Spica will appear close to each other. Jupiter will be shining bright. Venus will be lower on the horizon. Look East about 45 minutes before sunrise. Happy viewing.
A weak system approaches on Wednesday bringing increasing clouds, but the temperatures will remain mild. Showers move in Thursday. It won’t be an all day wash out, but you’ll want to be prepared for some showers. At this time it looks like the atmosphere will be too stable for thunderstorms.
Behind the front this weekend starting Friday, the temperatures will drop slightly to the upper 30s for lows and upper 50s for highs. Sunshine will dominate the weekend forecast.
I’ll have an update on News 4 at 10pm.
