Today – Partly Sunny, Chance For Thunderstorms – High 89

We are tracking another chance for thunderstorms over Middle Tennessee this afternoon. A Southwesterly flow will return moisture to our area just ahead of a weak cold front. The National Weather Service believes that our best chance to get scattered thunderstorm activity will be mainly after 1 PM. The NWS also believes that if storms develop they will be out of the Nashville area by 1 AM tonight.

All the models seem to find rain chances humorous but the NAM’s Simulated Radar does show some rain overhead at 4 PM.

To be fair, only the NAM model predicted rain yesterday. HRRR, RAP did not. And we had some thunderstorms. Score one for the NAM!
