March 15: Spring into the Weekend

Feeling like spring with warmer temperatures and some rain for the weekend. Today was sunshine all the way with a high of 72° in Nashville, that’s 11 degrees above the average.

Most of that rain will clear the area by dawn on Saturday. Much of the Mid State will remain dry Saturday through dusk on Sunday. Just isolated showers are expected through that time.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be cooler with spotty showers and possibly a Cumberland Plateau flurry or two.

Tonight with a clear sky, you have a chance to see the planets Mercury and Venus. Look in the west sky as it starts to get dark. Mercury and Venus appear above the horizon as the sun sets. You don’t need a telescope to see them. Venus is the brightest and will appear first.
