Freeze Warning, Cumberland Plateau Advisory

Winter-like conditions will be possible for middle Tennessee this weekend. A freeze warning is in effect for Friday and Saturday night. Temperatures will drop to around the freezing mark in Nashville and upper 20s outside the metro area. Saturday night will be even colder with temperatures dropping as low as the mid-20s outside the metro. Breezy NW winds will add to the chill. In addition to the cold, rain showers along the Cumberland Plateau will change over to light snow overnight.

Strong Storms Tonight - 03/28/14

Sitting here with a few minutes to spare, so I thought I'd update the severe threat on the blog...

A line of storms has formed west of middle Tennessee and will move through this evening.  The good news?  After analyzing data and watching radar/satellite loops, it appears this won't be too much of a threat for us overnight.  The bulk of severe weather (winds 60mph+ and quarter size hail+) will stay south.  We're left with heavy downpours, gusty winds around 40 mph and small hail.

Showers and a few strong thunderstorms will push through overnight and linger into Saturday morning.  Slowly but surely, rain will push out Saturday afternoon and the clouds will clear.

Do you have plans for Sunday?  Great!  Sunday is looking b-e-a-utiful!  Plenty of sunshine and highs in the low 60s.  I think a bike ride around Percy Warner Park may be in order.  Enjoy the weekend!

JETS-REX-BUMGARNER

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- Michael Vick? Geno Smith? New York Jets coach Rex Ryan knows who he wants as quarterback for his limping team. Ryan jokes they're "gonna go with that Bumgarner guy." Madison Bumgarner is the San Francisco Giants ace and World Series MVP. Bumgarner secured the Giants a Game 7 series victory with a five-inning save. He had two series wins as a starter, too. The Jets are 1-and-7 this season, including seven straight losses. Bumgarner likely won't be available for the Jets on Sunday, so Ryan says he's going with his own lefty, Vick.

WHISKEY WAR

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- It's Jack versus George in Tennessee -- in a battle over the legal definition of Tennessee whiskey. The parent company of Jack Daniels supports the law that includes requiring Tennessee whiskey to be made from 51 percent corn, aged in new charred oak barrels and a minimum of 80 proof. The British corporate parent of George Dickel contends those regs are too restrictive. A state subcommittee heard testimony on the issue yesterday. Lawmakers are expected to consider changes to the Tennessee whiskey law in January.

DALLAS ZOO-GIRAFFE

DALLAS (AP) -- He's an awfully big newborn -- six feet tall and about 120 pounds. But this big, little guy has an even taller mom. The Dallas Zoo has a new giraffe. The healthy male calf was born Sunday and the birth was announced Wednesday. The calf doesn't have a name yet. The Dallas Zoo's giraffe herd has now grown to a dozen.

COYOTES-QUEENS ZOO

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City has five new residents. They're orphaned coyote pups who have a new home at the Queens Zoo. The animals were rescued in Massachusetts, where they were taken to a wildlife rehabilitator. Now, the coyotes have their own exhibit in Queens. The Wildlife Conservation Society's Queens Zoo specializes in animals from the Americas. The pups are the only coyotes on exhibit there.
