Coolish Temps for Now, Showers Return Sunday, COLD next week

Intern 4.0 here, a special thanks to David, Will, and Andrew for letting me make a “guest” appearance on today’s blog.

Dreary Conditions Continue Today

Technically speaking we have a very slim chance of a scattered shower this morning, but so far showers have stayed well to our south. So I wouldn’t count on any showers, but be advised if you were to feel a sprinkle or two. As you head outside this morning, you may notice the abundance of clouds overhead. Visible satellite imagery shows the sun rising over these clouds, even if we can’t see it here in Middle Tennessee. read more

Sunshine to Begin the Weekend, Showers Arrive on Sunday

Editor’s Note: Caroline’s Last Day!

We interview interns by Google Hangouts. Two years ago, we did one last one interview, thinking we were going to choose only Brendan. When it was over, me, Will, and Andrew immediately said: “Well, there is nothing to talk about, this is a no-brainer, Caroline is going to be very good at this.” We were right. Caroline will graduate from Mississippi State this spring, then transition to grad school. She’s been a leader at State.  She has volunteered at NWS-Nashville during the summer (they love her), and has driven up here to help everyone out during Severe Weather Awareness Day. Most of all, she has excellent weather skills, she’s reliable, trustworthy, and smart. Our rule is that interns graduate from @NashSevereWx when they finish undergrad, if not before. With our full support, she’s going to help out @memphisweather1 while she continues her post-grad education. Caroline has served me, Will, and Andrew well. She’s been no stress for us, she needs no editing; it takes a lot for us to trust someone with @NashSevereWx and she earned that trust right away. She’s served our community well, behind the scenes, during challenging forecasts. We will miss working with you, Caroline. We look forward to what your future will bring. It’s not goodbye. It’s see ya later. read more

Flood Watch Continues Through Tomorrow Morning

NWS Nashville: A strong low pressure system will sweep through the mid state Saturday night, with additional heavy rainfall expected. Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches are forecast during the next 24 hours.
