Current Official Hourly Observation (taken at :53 on the hour)
Current Radar Loop
Today – Sunny & Cool – High 80
Early this morning, we tied the record low temp for July 16 (57°).
High pressure and a north wind will continue to stream in crisp Canadian air. We’re only 10° below the normal high for mid July, which isn’t that much, but when combined with dewpoints in the 50s, it’s spectacular.
Thursday – Beautiful – Wake Up 58, High 83
Early in the morning, we’ll come close to the record low of 56° set back in 1945. Probably won’t make it, but still.
Sunny, cool, and dry once again!
By the way, this weather cannot be enjoyed while inside.
Friday – Chance of Rain – Wake Up 63, High 82
It wasn’t going to last forever, especially in July.
Rain, maybe a few storms, are possible Friday. When, where, and intensity remain unclear.
(Editor’s Note: I am skeptical.
The Euro weather model doesn’t have any rain for us Friday. The GFS agrees with the Euro, holding off the rain until late Friday night. At this range, I like these two solutions, and think the rain will hold off most of the day.)
However, there’s still a chance. The NAM’s simulated radar (below) shows storms making their way into Nashville around 4 PM Friday:
So, we need to hang on to a chance of rain Friday, but rain looks more likely Saturday.
For Saturday, the Euro is very aggressive with rainfall prediction. The current run predicts 1.5″ of rain during a 6 hour period Saturday afternoon, before clearing out on Sunday. The GFS model thinks it’ll rain off and on all weekend, but I like the Euro’s take here. Saturday looks to be pretty wet, but probably not 1.5″ in 6 hours wet.
