After a record setting warm day, colder air is set to return tomorrow. Today in Nashville, the high reached 77°, that ties the record from 1945. It is also the warmest it’s been since October 22. It was definitely a tease that spring is just around the corner. Clarksville reached 76° and Crossville’s top temperature was 71°, not records, but very warm.
It was also a windy day, with gusts registering 39 mph in Nashville and Clarksville and 35 mph in Crossville.
Tonight will remain mostly cloudy and mild. Rain will start to move in after midnight out ahead of the next cold front. Tomorrow that cold front will pass through early causing temperatures to fall from the lower 60s to the low 40s by late afternoon.
Rain will fall throughout the day with the most widespread rain along the front just in time for the morning drive. The showers will become more spotty in the afternoon. Here’s the latest Futurecast timing.
Saturday will also be rainy and cool. But Sunday is looking good, it will turn milder and be mostly dry with just an isolated passing shower possible. Monday and Tuesday will be very warm.
I’ll have an update on the forecast on News 4 after the Olympics.
