Chance of Scattered Showers Tonight, Cooler Temps Return Tomorrow

Current Radar

A Brief Statement on January’s Climate

January was fairly warm. We’ve had some people ask us, so was this the warmest on record? Well … not quite. According to our local National Weather Service Office:

“January, 2017 was the 5th warmest January in Nashville’s history. The average temperature for the month was 47.1°, which was 9.3° above normal. The average high temperature was 55.0° and the average low was 39.1°. The highest observed temperature during the month was 72° on the 16th and the lowest was 8° on the 8th.”

This past January was definitely warm, just not quite the warmest we’ve ever seen.

Some Clouds, Maybe Some Rain

As we move through the remainder of the day, we do have a very slight chance of showers. HRRR displays a small line of showers moving through in the late afternoon/early evening hours.

Those to the south of I-40 appear to have the better chance to see this lawn-watering rain. Showers should be brief and scattered, so if you do win the rain lottery, the showers shouldn’t impact any outdoor plans you may have.

Below Average Temps and Some More Sunshine to Finish the Week

Expecting for quiet and much cooler temps to end the work week and to start the weekend. Periods of sunshine each day with highs topping off in the 40s with overnight temperatures dropping into the upper 20s to low 30s.

Hope you haven’t put away the winter clothes quite yet; you’ll need them if you have any evening outdoor plans over the next few days.

For those with plans to go to the Father Son Bowl this Saturday in Franklin, the weather looks to hold up quite nicely through the daytime hours. Though, It may be a tad bit cold outside as highs will reach the mid 40s.

Showers Move Back into the Picture Saturday Night

If you’ve missed the rain, don’t worry because we look to start another fairly active weather pattern starting Saturday night.

Some no-worry showers will glide through the area late Saturday night into early Sunday morning.

Much beyond that does appear to be unsettled due to model inconsistencies. However, models do hint at more shots of rain to start next week and those rain chances continuing at least through the middle of next week.
