Spectacular Late-August Weekend, Unsettled Next Week

Gorgeous Weather For the Weekend

Canada is good for bacon, hockey, and lots of other things…including high pressure!

West-northwesterly flow, thanks to the Canadian high, will continue to filter in through the remainder of this weekend. Dry conditions will prevail, with sunshine bumping afternoon temperatures Sunday into the upper 80s. Overnight lows will be a bit cool, hovering in the low to mid 60s.

Seen on this morning’s surface map is (still) Hurricane Harvey, now a Category 1 storm. Our thoughts are with the people in Texas affected by this historic storm.

Happening Tonight in Nashville

Gov’t Mule & Blackberry Smoke – Ascend Amphitheater
Mayweather vs McGregor – Watch Party at Bridgestone Arena

If you plan to be down at the Amphitheater or out on Broadway, a light jacket might be warranted…as evening temperatures will slide into the upper 60s!

Monday-Tuesday…Scattered PM Storms

A low pressure system is expected to swing a weak cold front in our direction by Monday into Tuesday. With the additional return of southerly flow on these days, afternoon showers and thunderstorms are possible. Not everyone gets to win the rain lottery, though.

GFS Monday 1AM – Wednesday 7AM

We are expecting less coverage in rain activity on Wednesday and Thursday, but still a few afternoon spot storms are not out of the question…mainly along and south of I-40.

Labor Day Weekend

Right now, there is quite a bit of uncertainty in this extended timeframe. A frontal boundary may be on approach by next Sunday and Monday, which would up our rain chances. Also, the remnant moisture from Hurricane Harvey may make an attempt to interrupt weekend plans. However, we do not expect copious amounts of rainfall in the next 7 days.

LIVE ON THE GREEN, Thursday-Saturday

Thursday…lookin’ good.
Friday…watch for a few storms, mainly south of I-40.
Saturday…scattered storms around.

For the most part, LOTG should be in good shape next weekend, but there are some big question marks right now. We will know more in the coming days.
