Last Night’s Storms:
We were the recipients of a couple of rounds of severe weather yesterday, which produced wind damage in several areas of both counties and torrential rain. Here’s a time-lapse from Oak Hill of the dinner time round of storms and the great sunset before the overnight round of storms developed.
Tonight: Passing Clouds, Temps Fall to the Mid 70s
A flash flood watch remains for Davidson and Williamson Counties until 10 PM tonight.
Evening plans look good thanks to the majority of the storms passing to our North.
So far there is nothing behind the line developing; as always, if something does we will let you know on Twitter @NashSevereWx.
Expecting for partly cloudy skies overnight with temps dropping into the mid 70s.
Friday: Sunny to Start, Rain Late – Wake Up 76° High 95°
Another good summertime start to the day on Friday. Looks to start out predominantly sunny and stay that way through the majority of the day. Temps are expected to reach into the mid 90s with dew point temps reaching the low to mid 70s, aka it’s going to feel awful outside.
By the late afternoon to evening time frame on Friday, a cold front will be passing across the region. With the cold front, some showers and thunderstorms could form along it and bring more moisture into our area.
NAM 4 is currently showing a late Friday/early Saturday arrival for showers and storms:
Some other models show an earlier arrival of these showers/storms. The Storm Prediction Center currently has us under a “Slight Risk” for severe weather for tomorrow.
Through the weekend, the front that will pass through late on Friday is expected to become somewhat stationary and sit in our area. With this quasi-stationary front, moisture will become and unlimited source for showers and thunderstorms.
Still a little too far out for a good “when” of all of this. Most long terms models are showing scattered showers throughout the entire weekend. For those with weekend plans, know that rain could impact them; nothing is “cancel worthy” at this time thought.
For those with evening plans on Saturday (*cough cough Guns N’ Roses Concert*), I would bring a poncho. It is still too far out to know an exact time of “when” we will get showers, but recent models have been showering scattered showers in the evening time frame. If the weather decides to crap out, we will let you know. For now, get pumped for the weekend.
Another thing to consider into the weekend is the potential for water to build up. With the recent downpours we have experienced, the ground will be all ready very saturated which means any additional rainfall could add up on roadways very quickly.
NWS had this to say about the weekend:
