Feeling Like Summer Tomorrow
High pressure will take hold for the next couple of days, encompassing middle Tennessee in a dome of warm and mostly dry air. Temperatures tomorrow will be in the mid-80s, approaching 90ºF.
The record for maximum daily temperature on April 14th was 89º set back in 1887. We may get close to this tomorrow.
Easter Weekend = Increasing Rain Chances
The Easter Bunny might think about coloring eggs with a waterproof tye-dye this year. While Saturday looks like a pretty nice day (with increasing clouds), a cold front will approach Davidson/Williamson Counties on Sunday, likely sparking off showers and a few thunderstorms.
Just one model — NAM12 Sunday morning into Sunday night.
To repeat: there is confidence a cold front approaching on Easter Sunday, with the potential for scattered showers and thunderstorms. There is some uncertainty as to whether the activity will hold off until after any morning Easter egg hunts. We think it might be possible that rain waits until after noon, but it is too soon to say with confidence. Check back for more updates.
Next Work Week
That pesky cold front for Sunday will “stall out” and eventually lift north of us mid-week as a warm front. Until then, Monday and early Tuesday, a few showers and rumbles of thunder will be possible. Keep in mind as we chug towards summertime, storms may become more “garden variety” in nature — meaning widely scattered and usually due to daytime heating of the Earth’s surface.
