Rain Likely Tomorrow

Today Typical Summer Pattern – High 92

Today will be much like yesterday. We will be hot and humid, with a slight chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms after noon. The bulk of the activity will stay east of I-65, but a few brief garden variety thunderstorms are possible.

The NAM’s Simulated Radar paints the best picture of what will likely occur this afternoon.

So, we think most of us will remain rain free. However, if you are (un)fortunate enough to get a pop up shower overhead, it will pass quickly.

Saturday Showers &Thunderstorms – Wake Up 71, High 89

I hate to be the bearer of bad news…But showers and thunderstorms are possible at some point during the Vanderbilt vs Ole Miss game and Live On The Green. Kick off is at 3:30 PM and music begins at 1:45 PM.

A trough of low pressure will drag a cold front into Middle Tennessee Saturday afternoon/evening, bringing a line of showers and a few thunderstorms. Rain will likely begin to fall during the late morning hours, and perhaps linger into the early afternoon.

Here is what the NAM is depicting at 1 PM.

The line of storms will likely reach Nashville after noon and stick with us in an off/on manner until the early evening. The National Weather Service has an equally bleak forecast.

Something to hope for: The front is expected to weaken as it approaches Nashville. So, there is a chance that the #raindome will kick in and weaken the line of thunderstorms.

Note: we’ll update this very early tomorrow morning, when we will have the benefit of the short-range models.

Sunday Lingering Showers & Cool – Wake Up 67, High 83

A few lingering showers will be possible in the morning and early afternoon. Afternoon clouds & rain will mix out to reveal partly cloudy skies. In addition, in wake of the cold front, we will have below normal temps. Many of you will be watching the Titans anyway.



BTW, we took a peak at the medium range models….next weekend looks awesome.
