Storms increase for the holiday weekend

Good Friday and welcome to the long holiday weekend. Labor Day is the unofficial end to summer, and it appears that summer will go out on a stormy note. I guess that’s appropriate given how wet things have been this year.

Of course, that’s not very good news for folks who have outdoor plans over the next several days. Let’s break down the forecast:

Today will be another warm and super muggy one, with highs in the upper 80s. I can’t rule out a few isolated storms this afternoon.

High school football fans should have mainly dry weather, but prepare to sweat. Highs will be in the 80-85  degree range for most of the game.

Saturday will see a better chance of showers and storms as a weak front moves in from the north. Locally heavy downpours will be possible, with highs again in the upper 80s.

Sunday will see additional rounds of showers and storms flaring up, with highs in the upper 80s. A few of the storms might become strong at times.

Labor Day finds a cold front dropping into the state:


That will give us a good chance of showers and storms for our last holiday of summer. Highs will be in the low 80s for many areas.

Overall rain numbers from the next 4 days show the potential for more than an inch of water across the region:

GFS Rain

Much cooler and drier air will sweep in by Tuesday. Highs will be in the 70s and lows in the 50s.

For our fellow wildcat fans making the trip to Nashville on Saturday, take the poncho. Scattered storms will be around Music City:

Have a great Friday and take care.
