Update: Rain & Storms This Afternoon

Current Radar

Today – Looking West at Approaching Rain/Storms – High: 85°

The Storm Prediction Center has our area under a slight risk for this afternoon and evening. The main threat will be damaging winds and heavy rainfall. The hail and tornado threat are very low.


Showers with embedded thunderstorms are expected to move through our area this afternoon. Some storms can be severe with damaging winds and heavy rainfall as main threats.

A summer cold front is on the way along with a line of thunderstorms that will develop as the day progresses.

We will keep you updated on storms that develop ahead of the front. The timing of the rain/storms is really uncertain.

The NAM, which seems pretty aggressive of the storm/rain, has some storms firing up after 4:00 PM.


The front is expected to sweep through tonight through the overnight hours. Some storms can be severe with the main threat of damaging winds and flash flooding. Remember turn around, don’t drown.



I would not put too much credit in the ETAs listed above. Almost every other model has a different solution to the forecast. We think the worst storms are more likely after dark. Stick with us on Twitter @NashSevereWx, and monitor numerous reliable weather outlets, for updated information throughout the day.

The summer front will affect our temperatures tomorrow. We are going to only climb into the upper 70s on Thursday.

Thursday – What is a Heat Index? High: 79°

Rain chances remain in the forecast, especially in the morning.

After the front passes, check out the temperatures! High pressure will move on in, making room for some dry, north air? It is going to feel like the upper 70s.

The GFS has cloud cover sticking around throughout the morning into lunchtime. During the afternoon – we should start clearing up a bit with partly cloudy conditions.

Friday – Warming Up Slightly Wake Up: 62° High: 82°

Friday would be the perfect morning to go out for a jog. We will be waking up into the low 60s, warming into the low 80s by the afternoon.

We will stay under this dry airmass so it is going to feel like the low 80s on Friday.

Extended: Warming up going into the weekend as high pressure begins to take over. Rain chances exist overnight Saturday into Sunday morning.
