Wow what a day! We had an incredible leap from morning to afternoon. The low in Nashville was 30°, the high soared to 80°. That is a rise of 50°. The National Weather Service doesn’t traditionally keep records of extreme temperature ranges. They did note that January 23, 1961; the temperature dropped 61 degrees from morning to night, but that was a cool down, not a warm up like today.
Crossville did set a record low this morning dropping to 27°.
Mostly dry pattern in store for the rest of the week. Tonight a clear sky and mild. Great weather for some sky watching tonight. Look to the west about an hour after sunset, you should see Venus and the Moon.
Windy and warm on Wednesday with a slight chance of a shower in the evening as the next front moves through. Here’s the latest Futurecast depiction.
You’ll need your jacket again after the front passes. Thursday and Friday will be dry but the morning lows will be in the 40s and afternoon highs will rise to the 60s.
Saturday looks great with some sunshine and an increase in clouds. The high will be near 70. Our next chance for significant rain arrives Sunday.
I’ll have an update on News 4 at 10pm.
