Showery Thanksgiving Travel, Unsettled Next Week

Current Radar

Tonight: Clear Night, Very Cold

Most of us will dip down into the upper 20s overnight and into Tuesday morning.

Tuesday: Warmer, Slight Increase In Cloudiness – Wake Up 27º High 61º

A few more clouds are possible on Tuesday but sunshine will be the main story once again. The reason for our increased warmth will be due in part to the previously mentioned high pressure migrating east.

Overnight lows Tuesday into Wednesday will be above 32° finally, forecasted to be in the lower 40s.

Extended Outlook and Thanksgiving Preview:


Holiday travel, whether you’re coming or going, could be a little soggy on Wednesday.


Anywhere from 0.25-0.75″ of rain is possible, with more to our southwest. Rain starts mid morning and begins to shut down late afternoon. Some moderate downpours are possible, also.

The good news?

Thanksgiving Day is rain-free and highs will approach the 60° mark.

Great weather for a backyard family football scrimmage.

Next Week – Strong to Severe Storm Potential

Grab some popcorn for this. We’re looking at forecasts for a week away, so uncertainty is quite high. However, NWS Nashville had some things to say about next week’s weather:

The third system is a little more interesting.  While the GFS and
the Euro differ on the timing of this system (Euro on Sunday and GFS
on Monday), the synoptics are extremely impressive. Deepening
surface low, negatively tilted trough, an upper level jet
structure with its exit region right over the state, deep layer
shear off the charts -- but almost NO instability. Here`s the
catch and why this system will need to be monitored closely: any
instability that can be realized -- even 500 J/Kg surface CAPE --
and we could be looking at a severe weather outbreak. But, this is
6-7 days away and we all know how models change that far out. It`s
something worth watching.

GFS MODEL GUIDANCE *Not a forecast!* (Sunday through Tuesday)


This is definitely not a “sound the alarm” moment, but is a system that could bring some very unsettled weather to the region midweek next week. and @NashSevereWx on Twitter will have all the latest information to keep you in the know.
