Extended Outlook: Warm & Wet

 

 

The last half of April is expected to average out seasonably WARM  with ABOVE-NORMAL Rainfall in Middle Tennessee. The coolest air is forecast to remain bottled up to our north--up across the northern Plains, Midwest and Great Lakes Region. 

Except for a brief cool-down (about 24-36 hrs in length) behind each cold front, expect west-to-southwest flow aloft to keep temperatures pretty mild in the Mid-State.

Cold fronts will regularly sweep across the Tennessee Valley, at the rate of about 1 every 5 days or so, and each front will likely bring copious amounts of rain, along with a potential for strong-to-severe thunderstorms.
