Back in 1982 on this day, Nashville warmed up to a record 75°. Will we see that today? Not quite, as we’re more on the order of 20° cooler than that record.
Rain Free? Not For Long
The NAM (North American Model) above handles tomorrow’s rain event fairly well. Late Wednesday evening, a piece of atmospheric energy will approach us from the west, setting off a few showers and storms. Activity continues through the overnight hours into Thursday’s AM rush hour, but by then is already pushing east.
We should end up dry by midday Thursday with gusty northwest winds filtering in much cooler air.
New Year’s Weekend Preview
Friday is a day of increasing clouds, and then…
New Year’s Eve looks a little soggy. Start making plans for an indoor celebration, just in case you were thinking about a bonfire or some other outside activity. I don’t think we’ll see a total washout, but some steady rainfall could be with us as we ring in 2017.
Into the first couple days of 2017, rain will continue to be a nuisance. Sunday, Jan. 1 looks mainly dry during the day, but we’ll watch another shortwave develop over the southern Plains and roar its head on Monday with additional showers and thunderstorms forecasted.
