Storm comes, storm goes

The windy, rainy storm came and went quickly during this afternoon’s rush hour:

I got had gotten on the bus just a minute before it hit, and it was done and the sun shining by the time I got off another bus near my home (with a dry transfer at Music City Central).  Instagrammer oloughness seemed to be out in it, though:

Meanwhile, Lisa Marie Donovan got outside to enjoy the warmer temperatures:

Winter's over. I'm done hibernating. Roses are blooming. All the world is green. Phew.

Significant tornadoes hit Nashville 18 years ago today

On April 16, 1998, lots of strong tornadoes hit Nashville and Middle Tennessee.  Over the course of the whole day, 13 different tornadoes hit the area.  According to the NWS,

The most infamous tornado during the outbreak struck downtown Nashville, blowing out numerous windows in skycrapers and causing the collapse of some older buildings. Other notable tornadoes included three violent tornadoes in southern Middle Tennessee that reached F4 to F5 intensity, and an F3 tornado in Pickett County that damaged or destroyed hundreds of homes and businesses.

The NWS did a re-analysis of the data in 2013 and changed some of their data on the weather events of the day, including the number of storms.

First Day of Spring? Sure…

Tomorrow’s the first day of spring.  To mark the occasion, Mother Nature is taking this warm weather away and replacing it with a freeze warning.  We’ll get as high as 47° tomorrow, but in the wee hours of Monday morning, it’ll be even colder.

If you set out your spring plants already, cover ’em up Sunday night.  If you put away your winter wardrobe in the past week, pull it back out.  You’re gonna need it a bit longer.

Do you realize it’s still winter?

We hit 87° today, which, well, I’ll just let the National Weather Service tell you:

FOLKS WERE BREAKING OUT THE SHORTS, TANK TOPS AND FLIP-FLOPS THIS
AFTERNOON IN NASHVILLE, AS RECORD-BREAKING HEAT ROLLED IN.

THE HIGHEST TEMPERATURE RECORDED SO FAR TODAY IN MUSIC CITY HAS
BEEN 86 DEGS, WHICH HANDILY SHATTERED THE OLD RECORD OF 82 SET
BACK IN 2012. INTERESTINGLY, THE 87 DEG HIGH TODAY MAKES THIS THE
WARMEST WINTER DAY EVER RECORDED IN NASHVILLE SINCE RECORD-
KEEPING BEGAN WAY BACK IN 1871. THE OLD SEASON RECORD AT NASHVILLE
WAS 86 DEGS, SET PREVIOUSLY ON MARCH 12 AND 13, 1907, MARCH 18,
1908 AND MARCH 19, 1982.

Nashvillian Niki Taylor got outside to enjoy the winter weather:

A nice way to wake up

Shop615 shared this photo of this morning’s sunrise as seen behind a half-staff flag:

Do I see a hint of red in there?  Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning: this afternoon’s rain, followed by yet more rain.
