Would love your input on Nashville, TN weather on September 7, 2019! We're having an outdoor wedding :)

Sept 7, Nashville

The Editors's picture

We don’t have a specific Nashville forecast; we do the region and we are predicting isolated t-storms, and warm temps for Sept 5 to 12. NOTE, this is following a hurricane threat forecast for Sept 1 to 4. Best wishes!

Already WAY Off

It’s 5/23. According to this, it SHOULD be warmer than average but it’s at LEAST 20° higher than this is calling for. Yesterday it was 97° here in Jasper AL. It’s projected to be in the 90s for the rest of the month. Barely any precipitation this month. Not a good year to rely on the farmers almanac it seems.

the heat

Well, we’re now into June and your area appears to have cooled down a bit (according to G research), but it appears still to be higher than out predicted average of 76°F for the month. Thanks for keeping us posted.
