Thursday – Mostly Sunny, Showers & Thunderstorms – High 84
A few showers and isolated thunderstorms should develop after noon. The National Weather Service thinks these “shotgun” storms (wx nerd term meaning explosive development) will become more numerous East of Interstate 65 as we move through the afternoon.
Tonight, clouds begin to build in ahead of a disturbance moving in from the West. This will be tonight’s rain maker.
The RAP believes the rain associated with the disturbance will be in Nashville around midnight. Below is an image of the RAPs simulated radar.
The NAM generally agrees. It puts the leading edge of the showers and thunderstorms here between 10 PM and 1 AM. Below is an Image of the NAM’s simulated radar from 10 PM.
The HRRR agrees with the other two models and puts the leading edge of the showers and storms in our vicinity around midnight. Below is and image of the HRRR’s simulated radar from 11 PM.
The Storm Prediction Center does not believe Middle Tennessee will see any severe weather.
Friday – Cloudy & Stormy Early, Mostly Sunny – Wake up 68, High 81
By noon, the overnight showers and thunderstorms will be pulling out of Nashville to the East. Below is an image of the NAM’s simulated radar from 1 PM.
High pressure will build in once the disturbance shoves off to the East. This means mostly sunny skies for the rest of the day! We will stay mostly clear overnight.
Saturday – Sunny & Warm – Wake Up 60, High 84
High pressure will begin to to dominate our region… This will keep Middle Tennessee sunny, warm and dry!
