Rain Coming in Wednesday Morning + Possible Freezing Rain Thursday Night

We enjoyed some really nice temps today with a high of 67° and plenty of sun. But…

Mid-Week Rain

Temps stay in the mid 50’s for Wednesday and Thursday. Low pressure starts to come into our area bringing rain early Wednesday morning. Sustained winds Wednesday ramp up to 20 mph with gusts <30 mph. Showers continue but are spotty Wednesday afternoon to evening time.

Thursday morning showers get heavier as that cold front approaches Middle Tennessee. A thunderstorm or two could be in the mix but no other threats are expected. Davidson and Williamson Co. could see 3-4″ of rain from this system if a heavy rain band sets up over us. While no major flooding is forecast, 3-4 inches of rainfall in the wintertime causes more issues in the creeks than 3-4 inches of rainfall in the summer when the vegetation is greened up and soaking up lots of water. So, would not be surprised at all to see some of our usual creeks throw some tantrums.

With temps dropping because of that front, there is a chance for some wintery precipitation on the back side of this system. Some models have a freezing mix affecting our area Thursday night into early Friday morning. Most agree that any winter precipitation won’t be super heavy.

The HRRR is hot off the press as of this writing, and it is not impressed with the ice shenanigans. Lotsa rain, but it dries out before cold air arrives.

0z HRRR Tuesday 7pm – Thursday 6pm
Euro Model: Precipitation Type and Values from 9pm Tuesday to 12pm Friday
GFS Model: Precipitation Type and Values from 9pm Tuesday to 3am Friday

With overnight temps dropping below the freezing mark, road hazards may be present. Watch out for areas of elevation and overpasses on your Friday morning commute.
