Ramping Up Rain Possibilities, Decent Temps For August

Welcome to August 2017 — the month of the Solar Eclipse!

This Week — Not a Washout, But Some Rain For the Lawns

A slight chance of a storm exists today from Davidson/Williamson Counties westward. There’s just enough moisture, apparent on this morning’s upper-air observations, to squeeze out a storm or two. Not everyone gets so lucky, but some burnt area lawns could definitely use it.

Wednesday and Thursday…Models Totally Disagree

Ever taken a road trip with a sibling and you just couldn’t ever quite get along? That’s the GFS and EURO this morning. GFS says, “Rain during both afternoons!” while the EURO exclaims, “Dry as a bone!”. NWS Nashville appears to cautiously be going with the GFS, as to say that we could see a spot thunderstorm both days. However, much uncertainty exists during this period.

Friday? Much Better Rain Chance + Cold Front

Friday’s showers and thunderstorms will occur mid-morning through the afternoon as a cold front swoops down I-24 into the area. A few storms could be strong but no organized severe weather is expected. We’ll be watching this scenario for any future changes.

Saturday’s Nice, Sunday Maybe Not

Looks like your best bet for outdoor activities is Saturday. Get the fishing poles ready!
