RAIN ON IT'S WAY: After a high of 72° (warmest day since Oct. 30th) on Wednesday, we'll see temperatures pull back a bit today with highs around 63°. Rain makes it way into our area by afternoon (we've already seen some, .06", this morning) and I can't rule out a strong storm or two. The best chances will be back toward the southern and western sections of Middle Tennessee. Thunderstorms will last into Thursday night as a strong cold front approaches from the west. Expect a chilly Friday with highs only around 50°, it'll feel colder as the day will be mostly cloudy. We get a much nicer day on Saturday with highs in the 60's, but storms return for Sunday.
