Best Chance of Storms On Thursday, Fingers Crossed For Eclipse

Quieting Down! Rain Fizzles

As the sun sets, the rain chances diminish rapidly either way. Still, a muggy evening is expected.

Wednesday, Much of the Same.

The upper levels of the atmosphere are not exactly what you would call “organized” at this time. There’s no real telling where a shower or storm could pop up on Wednesday, but the heat and humidity will definitely be supportive.

NAM3 thinks tomorrow morning/mid-afternoon could be stormy…this is at 10AM CT.

Keep the umbrella along!

Thursday + Live on the Green (LOTG) Forecast

More widespread showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop Thursday out ahead of a cold front. The GFS and EURO agree on a little activity earlier in the day, but the “main rain” along the cold front comes 6PM and after. What does this mean for Live on the Green??

Thursday 6:15 PM to 11 PM || Minus The Bear, Real Estate, and Local Natives

Well, bring the ponchos folks. Rain appears likely at some point during the show, particularly during the first-half. You don’t want to miss this lineup! Stick with @NashSevereWx on Twitter all day Thursday to stay updated on the evening weather impacts.

Next Weekend

Again, Saturday should be dry. Most afternoon showers will remain west of our area, but an isolated straggler could try to move in late evening. With the loss of daytime heating, that probably isn’t a very likely scenario.

Sunday a better chance for rain exists with a decent return of moisture pushing northeast through Middle Tennessee. These will still be our garden-variety thunderstorms, typical of summertime.

Solar Eclipse – August 21st

NWS Nashville this morning on the “Big Eclipse Day”:

Early next week, weak westerlies to continue. Some drier air will attempt to work into the area behind the departing shortwave impulse. Too early to tell…but early indications are that mostly clear to partly cloudy skies might occur on Monday, the big total eclipse day. Stay tuned, a lot could change between now and then.

Remember, Nashville’s (Downtown) totality begins at 1:27PM and continues until 1:29PM. Don’t be like Velma…get your glasses ready!
