Stormy Thursday, MUCH Cooler End to the Week

Current Radar

Tonight: Good For “Star”gazing – Evening Temps in the 70s

Update: You know that record of 87° set in 1953? Well, we set a new one today. Nashville International Airport, at 2:10 this afternoon, reached 88°.

The Dallas Stars are in town tonight for a 7PM matchup against the Preds. Temperatures as you head for Bridgestone Arena will be in the low 80s to upper 70s. In fact, the warmth outside may make your first row seats next to the ice feel quite refreshing.


If you want to do some actual stargazing, skies will cooperate by being mostly clear.

Wednesday: Sunny Start, Cloud Coverage Increases – Early 66° High 87°

Wednesday is nearly a carbon-copy of Tuesday.

Afternoon highs in and around Davidson/Williamson Counties are expected to reach the upper 80s once again. The record for tomorrow is 89° set in 2005, so while we may get close, our probability of seeing a record breaking temperature is better today than on Wednesday.

Again, the southerly wind will drive our warmer temperatures. A cold front (shown below) is forecasted to approach the region by late tomorrow and into Thursday. Expect an increase in clouds through Wednesday evening.

Extended Outlook: Stormy Thursday, Week Ends MUCH Cooler


With the approach of a strong cold front and a decent amount of moisture for it to work with, we will see shower and thunderstorm development. In fact, the Storm Prediction Center has placed us under a “Marginal Risk” for severe weather (1 on a scale of 0-5).

Based on current thinking, it appears strong winds and hail will be the main threats with any storm that gets intense.

*We haven’t seen severe weather in quite awhile, and hopefully we won’t have to deal with it on Thursday. However, now would be a good time to review your severe weather plans, particularly if you plan to be outside Thursday afternoon.* It is worth mentioning that severe weather supportive of isolated tornadoes does not appear likely at all; however, you can never completely rule out the potential (it only takes one).

When? Thursday afternoon. We will be able to pin down the severe weather potential and timing better by tomorrow as higher resolution guidance comes into play.

Impact? This is by no means a severe weather outbreak. A low-end threat, damaging winds and hail being the main concern, occurring during the daylight hours of Thursday.

We’ll be working hard to keep you informed on the latest forecasts and updates as our stormy day approaches. Mark in your “Favorites” and follow @NashSevereWx on Twitter for these updates!

And then…high temperatures in the 60s?!
