No lack of cloud cover as we kick start the work week!
Plenty of rain to go along with the clouds (7:42 am as I write here). Mainly impacting areas west of I-65 and mainly in the form of plain ol’ light rain…nothing severe.
All of this moisture is ahead of a frontal boundary, currently positioned just south of our state, continuing to lift on a northerly path.
This brings our greatest shower and storm chances during the morning into the early afternoon, fizzling out by the later evening.
Here’s the timing…
So where does this put us in terms of rainfall totals you may be wondering. We’re actually at a surplus! 3.01″ for the month of August, 31.53″ since the first of the year, bringing us to a whooping 1.07″ surplus for the year. With additional rain expect this week, this will only add on!
Clouds and rain serve as a blanket for an unseasonably cool day ahead. Average is 89 and I expect most of the Mid State to hang strong to the lower 80s. Not long, though! Back to normal upper 80s to lower 90s as soon as tomorrow.
If you’re looking for something fun to do tonight, The Sounds game will be an excellent choice! Most of the rain will be out of our hair (besides that 20% isolated chance), expect clouds and muggy conditions with a first pitch temperature of 79 degrees.
It’s still a week out but not too early for a general forecast of the anticipated Total Solar Eclipse! Out of a 1 to 10 scale, Nashville gets a 7 for a decent forecast! We’ll see a few clouds but it’s not looking overcast by any means. I do expect the clouds to be slow moving which is not good news if you do get a cloud overhead. Of course, it’s still early but all hands are on deck and we’ll keep you posted with the most up=to=date changes.
Meteorologist Dan Thomas will be tracking the rain coming up on News 4 at noon today!
