A taste of summertime this week with temperatures soaring to the 80s. This morning felt like winter was returning again on the last day of April as a record low was set in Nashville. It dropped to 37°, that ties the old record from 1908. Crossville also set a record low with 34°, set in 2008.
Tonight won’t be as cold, with the low near 50. Perfect weather to do a little sky gazing. The moon will be brilliant again tonight with what will appear to be a bright start, that is actually Jupiter.
With brilliant sunshine tomorrow will be even warmer than today. Highs will be in the low 80s.
It gets even warmer. A persistent southerly wind the high are expect to reach the mid 80s on Wednesday and Thursday.
With that south wind also transporting moisture into Middle Tennessee, not only will you feel the increase in humidity, but it will also set the stage for thunderstorms. Friday will bring scattered showers and thunderstorms, they are not expected to be severe.
Saturday and isolated shower is possible and Sunday will be drier under a partly cloudy sky.
I’ll have an update on News 4 Today.
