A warmer pattern is in place of the weekend. Today the high reached 49° after a frigid 18° start this morning. Tonight will be cold but not quite as cold as we’ve experienced in recent days, just around the freezing mark. Each day gets even warmer.
A disturbance passing by tonight is spreading clouds across the mid-state, that along with the south wind will keep those temperatures up. Saturday will warm to the lower 50s before warming to the low 60s Sunday.
Don’t expect a bright and sunny weekend, there will be more clouds than sunshine Saturday and even more clouds Sunday. Late night Saturday into Sunday we could see a few isolated showers, so don’t be surprised if you see some.
Our next weather maker is still well to the west coming across the Rockies. Expect it to arrive in Middle Tennessee by Monday with a good soaking of rain, breezy conditions and our warmest day out of the next 7 days, in the mid 60-degree. An isolated thunderstorm or two is possible.
Tuesday through Thursday will then be partly cloudy and a little cooler, but above average. The airmass behind this next front is not an Arctic airmass. I am thankful. I’ll have an update on News 4 at 10pm.
