NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - Plenty of afternoon sunshine is expected across the Mid State today and temperatures will once again push into the mid and upper 80s this afternoon.

Tonight will be clear and cool with lows around 60.

The warm weather continues into Wednesday with just a few more afternoon clouds and highs in the mid to upper 80s.

A strong cold front will approach the Mid-State starting on Thursday. The afternoon is looking cloudy and even though I cannot totally rule out a late-day shower on Thursday evening, most of the showers hold off until Thursday night and go into our day on Friday.

Be sure to keep that umbrella handy on Friday as those showers work their way through the Mid State. One or two spots may even hear a rumble of thunder, but there is no severe threat to be concerned about.

The big story with this front is the quick temperature drop we’ll see. Temperatures on Thursday will be in the low 80s, Friday we’ll be in the 70s, and once the front clears the Mid-State we’ll see an even bigger cooldown for the weekend.
