Starting the new year on a much calmer note with clouds and cooler temperatures. The high for the day in Nashville was 57, that is a little misleading since it occurred just after 12mid, This afternoon, the temperatures hovered near 50°.

We ended the year with so much rain, it was record worthy. Crossville had the wettest year on record. For Nashville, it was the 15th wettest. There were 148 days with measurable rainfall in Nashville, the most in 30 years. (Thanks to Fred for this stat)


Back to the current weather for this first night in 2019, chilly tonight in the upper 30s under a mostly cloudy sky.

Rain returns Wednesday evening and sticks around through week’s end. Highs in the middle to upper 40s and lows in the 30s. Here's the latest Futurecast depiction.


Looks like we’ll stay warm enough to prevent any winter weather across Middle Tennessee.

The weekend looks fantastic!. Look for lots of sunshine with temperatures in the 50s to near 60.

Mild weather remains in the forecast next week with just a few showers Monday and Tuesday.
