Tonight: Rain Slowly Deteriorates, Temps in the 70s
Anyone who experiences rain later today will cool down immediately into the mid-upper 70s. Nice, right?
In case you don’t see rain, your temperature stair-step into the upper 70s will be a little slower, but we’ll get there. A comfortable night ahead in the temp. department, but it will remain humid.
UPDATE: The HRRR model above has been hinting at a line of storms approaching the Mississippi River later tonight…let’s keep an eye on this, but the current thinking is that it will dissipate on its way through Kentucky/west Tennessee.
Saturday: Approaching Cold Front, More PM Storms Possible – Sunrise 70° High 89°
Here comes the cold front. We’ll be dry by late morning, and then more showers/storms fire up in the afternoon and evening. The main sweep of the front comes early Sunday AM, so this is when our greatest chance for rain will occur.
However, storms like daytime heating…which means storm chances during the early morning on Sunday will be less than if the cold front moved through during the day Saturday. Plus, the main round of rain won’t impact your outdoor plans on Saturday. Again, anything that develops will be well out ahead of the boundary.
The weekend is not a washout, and we’ll stay on top of the rain chances right here, plus @NashSevereWx on Twitter.
Extended Outlook: Stormy Turns Sunny
Once we see our rain chances end, a new week of sunshine and a (few degrees) cooler airmass will engulf the region. Dry, with temperatures in the upper 80s is to be expected. With the official start of fall next week, it sure won’t feel like it. Temperatures will remain above average all week long.
Models also hint at an approaching cold front next weekend, where rain chances will be reintroduced.
