The skies over Nashville are set to deliver a spirited variety of spring weather this week, with the National Weather Service (NWS) in Nashville forecasting a high near 87 degrees today and a rumbling encore of showers and thunderstorms throughout the week. According to the NWS update early this morning, conditions are anticipated to clear up temporarily, turning most parts sunny after a cloudy start to the day.

But the city's spring serenade isn't ending on a quiet note tonight, there's a reported 60% chance that showers and thunderstorms will play through, possibly starting as early as 1 am, and potentially intensifying after 3 am with gusty south winds. Residents are advised to expect rainfall amounts to be light except in the event of thunderstorms, which could cause higher totals in some areas, Wednesday will usher in a symphony of potential showers and thunderstorms before 7 am followed by more sporadic musical chairs of rain and clear skies with a high of near 83. The weather will crescendo with south-southwest winds that could reach up to 25 mph.

The intermittent rain patterns continue into Thursday night, boasting an 80% likelihood of showers and possibly a thunderstorm as temperatures lower to around 64 degrees. Friday follows suit with a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, leading into a mostly cloudy high near 75, and winds taking a turn from west-southwest to north-northwest throughout the day.

Looking toward the weekend, the NWS forecasts suggest a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms for both Saturday and Saturday night and though these probabilities pare down to a modest 20 percent chance of showers by Sunday, the weather refuses to shake off its penchant for the dramatic entirely with a mix of sun and clouds expected for the day. As the week rounds out, the forecast hints at a more placid note with sunny skies and a high near 70 degrees set for Monday.
