Wind Advisory and Rowdy Storms Wednesday, Cooler Weekend Temperatures

Current Radar

Tonight: A Few More Clouds, Cooler – 9PM 52°

Winds begin to turn out of the southeast tonight, which means a little more warmth and moisture are on the way. This will set us up for rain potential tomorrow.

Lows overnight tonight will be in the mid 40s.

Wednesday: Wind Advisory, Rain/Storms by the PM – Wake Up 43° High 66°

Update: A wind advisory has been issued for our area from 9AM-7PM Wednesday:


A rapid increase in cloud cover looks to be the case through Wednesday morning. Southerly winds will pick up dramatically at 15-25mph with gusts up to 45mph (refer to the Wind Advisory above).

Update: The models are in better agreement this afternoon on a “main time frame” for rain/storms…

Of course, there’s been a lot of “we don’t know” lately, but we blame the models.

The NAM still likes the idea of a passing shower late morning. I’m not overly convinced, but it remains a possibility.

Update: Between 5PM-8PM, all models agree this is the best chance for storms in-and-around Davidson and Williamson Counties:

Just in case, have your rain gear at the ready any time after 3PM tomorrow. Most all of the rain moves out by midnight.

The SPC has us under a “marginal” risk (1 on a 0-5 scale) for the Wednesday evening thunderstorms. Our atmosphere will lack much instability and dew points will be low for any sort of impressive severe weather event, so the “marginal” risk looks to be fair.

Main Storm Threats:

-Damaging wind gusts and small hail

About 1/2 inch of rain total can be expected through Thursday’s early AM:

Thursday: Mainly Dry and Some Sun, PM Shower Possible – Wake Up 45° High 65°

Models hint at the possibility of a passing shower Thursday afternoon, but it’s such a small “if”, I wouldn’t count on it quite yet. To play it safe, have the umbrella along, though, for any time after 2PM.

Temperatures will approach a “basic” level, with highs in the lower to middle 60s.

There’s a slightly better chance for a shower late Thursday evening into early Friday morning. Temperatures Thursday night will fall into the 40s.

Allergy Report

Wednesday’s rain should suppress some of the allergy suffering.

Extended Outlook

The chance for showers lingers into Friday, although they are very low chances. The weekend is looking cool, but nice once again!
