Warm Up and Rain Down
Update: A slow warm up through the weekend begins tonight. Winds will shift to the south tomorrow, initiating the conveyor belt of warmer air. Overall, tomorrow is nice for a winter’s day with lots of sunshine!
Keep in mind, a few light rain showers may speckle the radar overnight Saturday into the day on Sunday, but any appreciable rain is going to hold off until Monday-Tuesday.
A big warm up is in store for Monday when afternoon highs will reach the 60s! Be ready to break out the shorts again.
However. the warm up will be associated with showers Monday as a front lifts north through the area. This initial wave of energy precludes a strong cold front sweeping through Tuesday night.
NWS Nashville commenting on Tuesday’s rain/storm chances:
At this time, strong storms (at least) appear likely Tuesday afternoon and evening. The GFS forecast soundings do show come CAPE associated with this environment, and both the extended models show a 45-50 kt 850 mb jet setting up in the pre-front environment.
In short, this means some severe weather is possible. More details will be ironed out in future forecasts, but keep that in your back pocket for now.
