Today - Cool for July High 85

Showers are not expected today, but with a trough of low pressure starting to move in, a few sprinkles are possible. The official forecast is for partly sunny skies to continue, with no meaningful chance for showers and thunderstorms.

But, we’re watching the radar closely.

Tonight we will become mostly cloudy, with light showers possible late.

Friday Slight Chance of Rain– Wake Up 64, High 87

The aforementioned trough of low pressure will settle overhead, giving us a slight chance of showers throughout the day.

The NAM’s Simulated Radar is showing showers approaching Davidson and Williamson Counties around 1 PM.

18z HRRR

The bulk of the moisture will stay to the South and East of Nashville, meaning any rain totals we see will be very low. Nothing should get rained out.

Our slight chance for showers and thunderstorms will continue overnight into Saturday.

SaturdayPartly Sunny, Chance Of Thunderstorms –  Wake Up 66, High 87

A bit more moisture will build in on Saturday, turning our “slight chance” to a “chance” of showers and maybe a thunderstorm. These showers and thunderstorms may be firing up off and on all day, so be sure to pack an umbrella.

Thank you, Dr. Huxtable.

The Storm Prediction Center does not anticipate any storms in Middle Tennessee will be severe.
