Sunshine’s gradually taking over from west to east.  That trend will continue over the next couple of hours as sunshine gradually wins out.

Tonight will be clear and cold.  Don’t forget about the Super Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse if you want to see that early tomorrow.  You’ll need an unobstructed view of the western sky and a heavy coat!  We’ll have temperatures in the 20s at 5:48am when it begins.  The eclipse will end at moonset, which happens at 6:50am in Nashville.  The moon should look orange/red in color during the eclipse. That’s the reason it’s also referred to as a blood moon.

Tomorrow, as the wind swings around to more of a southwesterly direction, temperatures will climb nicely during the afternoon into the 50s and lowermost 60s.  However, the gusty wind will make it feel cooler.

On Thursday, expect clouds and rain.  Rain will turn to a brief period of snow for some areas Thursday night before coming to an end around midnight on the Cumberland Plateau.  Areas northeast of I-24 will likely receive SOME snow…with the most likely spot to have accumulations being the upper plateau.  Check out FUTURECAST below for timing and potential amounts.
