Rain Friday, Frosty Saturday Morning.

Beautiful today. Friday not so much!

High Thursday: 69°. Low humidity, too.

Clouds increase tonight ahead of rain arriving Friday morning.

The HRRR model thinks it’ll be raining when you wake up, heaviest by late-morning, then slowly tapering off mid-afternoon into the evening.

NWS-Nashville has us down for just under a half inch total. New data shows it may be as much as 1″.

That’ll wreck most outdoor plans. What a mudmaker.

Windy, too. South wind of 10-20 mph. Some gusts could reach up to 30 mph.

No severe weather expected. A non-severe thunderstorm is possible, but unlikely. We don’t expect enough instability to power up storms.

Cloud cover will keep the Friday’s afternoon high under 60°.

Saturday morning frost possible.

Friday night, temps will crash through the 50°s into the 40°, and drop into the 30° in the predawn hours of Saturday morning.

Not expecting a widespread freeze here, but it might freeze to our east at higher elevations.

“Issued a freeze watch for the eastern third of the mid state where near and below freezing temperatures are likely Saturday morning. The rest of the mid state will likely need a frost advisory with lows in the mid 30s.” – NWS-Nashville, AM Forecast Discussion, 5/7/20

NWS-Nashville, 5/7/20.

For us, a Frost Advisory will probably be needed for those early Saturday morning temps. Low 36°, but some local areas may reach freezing — many places at elevation often get colder than the official forecast temp for the airport.

Expecting about 3° warmer Sunday morning, low 39°.

I thought we got rid of winter a while ago?
