I Broke A Rule Today…Sorta

Those of us who’ve been around Nashville for a while know that planting stuff before tax day is really just a demonstration of your lack of self-control. This describes me perfectly. I’m well aware that those green graph bars up there show two nights of sub-freezing temperatures, but I’m ready to get on with things, for the love. On the bright side, the only things I planted were fairly hearty shrubs. They should be alright. But, really, let’s get on with it.

Rain Tonight

As I write this, rain chances are trending upward. In fact, on the front end of the rain you might hear some pings of sleet, because….science.

That dry air will act to keep rain light for a while, but eventually we expect rain to get more steady. Could even get a rumble of thunder, but no strong or severe storms. HRRR through 9:00 am as rain ends. (BTW, notice it skips an hour early tomorrow morning….wonder why….oh yeah!)

Spring forward. Daylight Saving Time begins overnight.

HRRR rain accumulation thinks we’ll range from a third of an inch to three quarters of an inch of rain by 9:00 am Sunday morning. Your mileage may vary.

Next Week

We’ll have some frosty mornings early in the week with frost and/or freeze advisories likely to be issued now that we’re coming into the growing season.

We should stay rain free until Thursday night and Friday when our next system arrives with a cold front, and it could bring temps down for a bit. NWS:

After that front passes, we will have another possibly stronger shot of cold air for next weekend. Forecast models show the colder air setting up shop for a while. This means we are likely to have winter-like temperatures as we head into the first day of astronomical spring on March 20!
