Tonight – Showers, Few Thunderstorms – 62 at 10 PM
Tonight is going to be soggy, with light rain showers turning off and on.
At 4 PM, a band of showers and thunderstorms crossed the Mississippi River into western Tennessee. The (short) wave of energy producing this event is currently in Arkansas and is pushing southeast. We expect these showers to arrive tonight.
The RAP simulated reflectivity has the bulk of the rain and thunderstorms kicking off here in Nashville between 10 and 11 pm, but we may see them sooner than that.
(The above loop is between 10pm and 7am)
There will be a few rumbles of thunder overnight, but nothing to worry about. No severe weather is expected.
Tuesday – Rain Early, Then Clearing – Wake Up 44 / Afternoon High 73
Showers and thunderstorms will continue into the “wee hours” of Tuesday morning. The chance of rain hangs around until 1 PM.
Once the rain pushes through, clouds will clear very quickly and we will see partly sunny skies by the end of the day.
This clearing will continue into the night until we are almost completely cloud free.
Wednesday – Sunny and Cooler – Wake Up 48 / Afternoon High 72
The winds will blow from the north/northeast, which will keep us in the lower 70s under mostly sunny skies.
In addition, we will be quite dry for this time of year!
Enjoy the sun, because another round of rain is on tap for the end of the work week.
Official Extended NWS Forecast:
The official NWS forecast for Saturday calls for 56° at the start, 70° around noon, under scattered clouds.
Rain is expected late Thursday/Friday, but for Saturday, a good bit of uncertainty remains. We tweeted this from the NWS Conference call this morning:
This means some weather models think we may see rain Saturday, but the current thinking is that we’ll stay dry. By Wednesday and Thursday, the models will be within 72 hours of the race, and will give us a more reliable idea what to expect. We’ll update you daily here and on Twitter.
