March 8: Warm and Wet Weekend

Many folks in Middle Tennessee were greeted with a little snow this morning. The greatest totals were along the Cumberland Plateau.  At the Nashville Airport .3″ was measured. Smithville and Cookeville received .5″.  The snow ended early for most areas.

Temp 1.

Tonight with  surface high pressure moving in the sky will clear and the wind diminishes allowing freezing temperatures on more night. With a south wind tomorrow temperatures we will warm to the upper 50s. Increasing clouds tomorrow and isolated rain showers will be possible, especially along and north of I-40 during the afternoon.  Check out the latest Futurescast.


Widespread rain will develop Saturday with some thunderstorms mainly across southern Middle Tennessee. Rain will linger into Sunday, highs both day will be near 60. Here’s the Futurecast depiction.

Temperatures will drop Sunday night and that could make for a mix with snow late Sunday into Monday morning.

    Nashville had its first freeze today (32) since Feb.12, when temperature dipped to 31. Yesterday, the first below-average day was measured since Feb.13. Not exactly surprising, as extended spells of false spring are often followed by freezing temps in March and, sometimes, even April. Forecasts call for more colder/seasonable conditions in the days ahead, so a partial redemption for the poor groundhog?

    Those groundhogs can not be trusted.

    Poor Phil (and Chuck). So often they get roasted for the whims of Ma’ Nature. No one seems to blame their top-hatted interpreters 😦 . I’d say: hire those with a more modern grasp of meteorology and phenology (I won’t comment on the fashion choice, though).
