Today – Thunderstorms Likely – High 87
A disturbance carried into Nashville on a Northwest wind is expected to create scattered showers off and on throughout the day. We have an ample amount of moisture in the air, so expect some localized heavy downpours in a few places. Whether we see them in Nashville or Williamson County, we don’t really know. The National Weather Service believes the bulk of the thunderstorm activity will occur during daylight hours, with a few showers possible after dark.
Some storms may contain 35 mph wind gusts, and frequent lightning, I would not be surprised to see a Significant Weather Advisory today.
The Hydrometeorological Prediction Center is forecasting between .10″ and .25″ of rain falling over Williamson and Davidson Counties between 7 AM this morning and 7 AM tomorrow.
Our NWS thinks that’ll be on the low side. They’re calling for 0.11″, but not all in one place.
Sunday – Chance of Showers & Thunderstorms – Wake Up 72, High 90
Fog is likely in the early morning hours.
A mass of slightly drier air is expected to work into Middle Tennessee, making the chance for showers and thunderstorms considerably less than Saturday. The drier air and partly sunny skies will allow the high to creep into the lower 90’s. Expect hit and miss (mostly miss) scattered showers throughout the the day, with the best chance of rain/storms between 1 PM and sunset.
Monday – Wild Card – Wake Up 72, High 90
.An energized disturbance and a weak cold front is poised to roll through Nashville on Monday. At this moment, the Storm Prediction Center is holding off on any severe weather risk because of a lack of key severe storm ingredients. The NWS is calling Monday a “wild card” because the front and disturbance could supply the otherwise-missing atmospheric processes needed for severe weather. At this moment we are only at risk for strong storms but that could change… Stay tuned.
Once the Hotdog Train, I mean cold front, passes through Monday night, we will become drier and a few degrees cooler than normal the next few days.
