One More Day of Calm, Then Rain/Storms

Music City Bowl Forecast


6 PM – 40º, temperatures falling into the 30s


Overnight tonight, winds will turn out of the south helping to bring in abundant moisture and an increase in cloud cover. Rain will quickly develop through Saturday morning and early afternoon, starting around 10 AM, and spreading over our area by late afternoon. If you have New Year’s Eve plans and are going to be outside at all for any period of time, bring the rain gear.


By Sunday evening, we look to get a break in the steadier rain, although a few small showers could still linger.

Monday, a cold front is on the approach. This, in addition to a co-located shortwave (energy), will help to fire off showers and a few thunderstorms across the lower Mississippi valley and the Tennessee valley. Severe weather is not in the cards at this time because thunderstorm ingredients won’t be all too impressive. The GFS below plays out Monday’s storms, which could even linger into Tuesday morning:


After this initial cold front pushes through, another front will encounter the area Tuesday night and finally bring a cold snap to Davidson/Williamson Counties. By Thursday, highs in the 30s with a chance of rain/snow is possible. We’ll be keeping an eye on any wintry mix shenanigans for late in the week.
