Soooo, Today Was Pretty Nice!

We chose 64° today. That was smart.

SaturdayIncreasing Clouds; Chance of Rain Late – AM Low 38, PM High 67

Rain chances begin at 6 PM Saturday, and run through 9 AM Sunday morning. Some models keep us dry, but I think we’ll see a few sprinkles — not enough to rain anything out.

Here’s the GFS Saturday night at Midnight. Not too wet:

Don’t forget to Spring Forward Saturday night:

SundayAM Rain Clears; Smidge Cooler, but the Sun Returns! – AM Low 40, PM High 56

The cold front will have arrived early Sunday morning, spreading some Pacific/Canadian air into Middle Tennessee. That’ll take us out of the mid 60°s, but don’t worry, check out Monday and Tuesday:

Don’t get excited.

Spring is not yet officially here.

Keep your head up, watch where you’re going, unlike this guy:

Always notice the frosting on the glass, y’all.

At the end of this afternoon’s forecast discussion, our NWS said this:

Warm temperatures will contiue on Tuesday, but another cold front will move through Tuesday night, knocking highs down for Wednesday into the 50°s. There’s a good chance of rain Tuesday night and Wednesday with possible rain mixing with snow Wednesday night.

Neither the GFS nor Euro model has it snowing here Wednesday night, and even if it did, a weather model predicting snow 126 hours away isn’t exactly reliable. It’s close enough to snow that it’s worth talking about, but the odds of snow are very slim.

It’s just another reminder: it’s not spring yet.
