Current Radar Loop
Today – Sunny & Humid – High 93
A southwest wind at 5-10 mph will bring the return of low level moisture and bad hair days. Combine the humidity with sunny skies and the heat index (Feels like temp) will be in the mid to upper 90’s.
Sunday – Cold Front – Wake Up 74, High 96
For much of the day we will be partly sunny and rain free. The National Weather Service believes there will be a capping inversion AKA the Rain Dome (TM) in place until around 1 PM. By this time enough low level lifting aided by sustained 10-20 mph winds will brake the Rain Dome (TM) apart and give us a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms. Overnight our “slight chance” for thunderstorms becomes a “chance” and we gain a slight risk of severe storms as the cold front pushes through Nashville.
The Storm Prediction Center has placed Middle Tennessee at a slight risk to see severe storms .
The main threat for us will be damaging winds and some hail.
Since yesterday the SPC has shifted the bulk of the severe action to the northeast.
Yesterday our probability of severe weather within 25 miles of a point was 30%. Today that probability has been reduced to 15%.
Monday – Sunny & Cool – Wake Up 69, High 85
Once the cold front and rain moves through Sunday night, cooler and drier air will filter into Middle Tennessee.
