–Wind and rain coming for Saturday
–Much colder weather coming
Much colder air will filter into the region Saturday night. That will set the stage for a stretch of days when temps will struggle to get above freezing for daytime highs, and overnight lows will fall into the teens. It’s been a while since we’ve experienced this kind of cold weather, so make sure the people in your life are ready to stay warm and that your outside pets have warm shelter.
Clouds will be on the increase today, ahead of our next big storm system. This system will carry a cold front that will send temps plunging back to readings we might expect this time of year.
Saturday is looking windy and rainy. Rainfall amounts should stay on the light side for a change. I expect the plateau to see around a quarter to a half inch of rain.
Then, we’re in for a stretch of cold and dry weather. Yesterday’s guidance suggested flurries from a quick moving system Monday night. Now, it looks like that system will be too far north.
The pattern becomes more unsettled by the very end of next week, but it’s too soon to know the impacts of that.
Baldwin’s 7-Day forecast
January of 1999 was a stormy time for much of the southern US (I have been reminded of that year many times this month!). On this day of that year, the largest known hailstone to fall in Tennessee fell in Pulaski. The softball-sized hail caused tremendous damage throughout that area. Elsewhere, damaging winds affected numerous homes throughout southern Middle TN. A 61 mph wind gust was recorded at Nashville International Airport.
