The Next Weather Maker

The second half of the weekend looks wetter. NWS Nashville broke it down this morning in their area forecast discussion:

So, any way you slice it, an unstable summertime weather pattern is expected to be in store for the mid state region Thursday thru next Monday…As a result, variable sky conditions are to be expected. On average,  scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible thru the next weekend. One exception to this will be numerous showers and thunderstorms will be possible during the day on Thursday.

So basically, keep the umbrella and rain jacket close.
