Cloudy Skies Through the Evening, Rain Returns Late Tonight.

Current Radar

Increased Shower Activity Late Tonight Through Tomorrow Night

Clouds will continue to hang around into the evening hours. The good news is that showers won’t move in until the overnight hours, so any early evening plans you have should remain fairly dry.

Latest run of the HRRR shows showers arriving after midnight and increasing through the early AM hours.

Now tomorrow is not the day to do any yard work. We have a pretty good chance of seeing showers for a good bit of the day.

It appears that we will see a pretty consistent flow of showers through most of the AM and through the entire day on Thursday.

NAM 4 displays a steady line of showers moving through the region all day tomorrow into the early morning hours on Friday.

Now we could see a thunderstorm or two tomorrow, but we are not expecting any severe weather at this point.

Bottom line – you are really going to want your umbrella tomorrow.

Another point to note about tomorrow is that we will be seeing a lot more rainfall than we have in recent times. The rainfall will be spread out enough that there aren’t widespread flooding concerns, but our local NWS had this to say in their afternoon update:

“Although we do not expect widespread or major flooding at this time, this type of rainfall will likely produce some impacts, with standing water on roads, ponding in low spots and poor drainage areas, and rapidly rising water levels along small streams.”

In total, we could see anywhere from 1″ up to 2″ of rain when this rain event passes.

Another Shot of Sunshine to End the Work Week

Once again, if you need to be outside at any point this week, Friday would be a great day to do so. Highs on Friday will be in the upper 60s with some clouds, but we could finally see a good bit of sunshine.

Seems like a great way to start the weekend to me.

Weekend Could be Wet with a Thunderstorm or Two

As we move into the weekend, an unsettled rain pattern looks to move into the area.

There is still some uncertainty surrounding the weekend due to the fact that our model outputs are not agreeing with one another. Generally speaking, the better chance of showers and thunderstorms appears to be Saturday night into Sunday. At this point, strong to severe thunderstorms can not be completely ruled out as a result of this model uncertainty.

If you have outdoor plans especially Saturday night, you may want to begin thinking about the rain plan.

We will continue to keep an eye on the models for the remainder of the week and let you know when/if anything changes. As always, follow us on Twitter @NashSevereWx for the latest information.
