Cold Rain Parade

I got tired of that big ole current temp map. Back to basics:

Quick Summary: Next 48 Hours




Wednesday – Partly Sunny – Wake Up 34°, High 45°

One more day of sort-of-nice, yet chilly, weather.

Then this:

It all starts very early Thursday morning, as a wuss shortwave arrives from our SW, delivering rain.

Some of the precipitation may develop initially as a rain/sleet mix mainly north of I-40, but forecast models suggest it won’t be cold enough for any widespread accumulations. It may be exciting when it happens, but any wintry precip we see should convert back to rain when the sun comes up and the temp warms above freezing.

We should be dry Thursday night through the first part of Friday.

A bigger storm system arrives late Friday night into Saturday morning. There has been a lot of talk of it being a snow producer, but as we get closer to the event, it appears it will — again — be too warm for snow. NWS-Nashville thinks it will be only rain, and after reviewing the models, there is really no support for a wintry mix or snow solution. Of course, there is still time for this to change, and the models could be all wrong, but that looks unlikely.

Expect a cold rain.

Not much rain expected through the weekend, just a little of it spread out over a long time:
