Rainy Weekend Expected

Wednesday’s Front = Rain/Storm Potential

Showers and a few storms are expected once again on Wednesday as a frontal boundary approaches middle Tennessee. The GFS paints a picture of rain while the NAM is very shy on placing any rainfall over our area. NWS Nashville is leaning towards the chance for rain rather than not at all, and some of these showers/storms could contain gusty winds and small hail.

Thursday is Dry, The Weekend is Not

Showers and embedded thunderstorms should return by Friday afternoon and continue intermittently through Sunday as a series of shortwaves (pieces of atmospheric energy) cut across the region. A few of the storms on Saturday could be strong, but the Storm Prediction Center does not have us under any sort of official threat for severe storms. What may be more of a factor, however, is the flood threat. 1-2 inches of rain between Friday and Sunday could cause small stream flooding and localized ponding on roadways.

For Bridgestone Plaza go-ers, Saturday more than likely will require the poncho.

With additional rain expected to continue into early Tuesday morning, a total of 3-4″ of rain could fall within a four day period.
