Weekend: Rain & Thunderstorms

Rain and thunderstorms are on the way for this weekend.  Torrential downpours and brief damaging wind gusts will be possible.

Outdoors this morning, it’s breezy and warming quickly.  As of 10am temperatures were mainly in the 70s.

This afternoon will be a lot like yesterday afternoon.  Highs will be in the upper 70s and low 80s.  It’ll be even windier this morning under a partly cloudy sky.

If you’re going to the Nashville Sounds game tonight, expect the summery feel to remain.


Meanwhile, farther west, this afternoon and this evening stormy over the eastern Plains. This is how the weather map looked late this morning with rain already developing through Texas, Oklahoma, and Missouri.  Severe thunderstorms are likely to erupt there and into Arkansas this afternoon.


Those storms will send clouds into the Mid State tonight.  The remnants of the thunderstorms will move into Middle Tennessee late tonight and early tomorrow.  Here’s the expected arrival time of the first round of rain and thunderstorms.


FUTURECAST shows the latest timing projection.  Notice how there will be several rounds of storms tomorrow and tomorrow night.

That means that for some of you, tomorrow will be especially wet.  However, there will be dry times too.  SO, while it won’t be the best day for an outdoor wedding, if you have something planned for the outdoors that’ll be quick (e.g. move furniture across town in the back of your pickup), you’ll probably find a window of opportunity that’ll work.

On Sunday, showers will taper off quickly.  It’ll turn cooler, with a high in the upper 50s and lowermost 60s.  Sunday afternoon should be completely dry, so that’ll make for an even better option for doing something outdoors.

Even cooler air will slide in for early next week.  On Tuesday morning, spots of frost will be possible, so take that into consideration if you wanted to do some planting this weekend.  Then, warmer air will move in for the remainder of next week.

Be sure to watch on News4 at Noon today.  We’ll take another look at the progression and timing of the rain tomorrow with an updated version of FUTURECAST.
