So, there is no chance of rain for the next seven days! After a constant rainy period for almost all of April, we are going to start the first seven days of May with no precipitation forecasted.  That really does prove that April showers bring May flowers!

A high pressure system will dominate our weather the next several days as it sits right on top of Middle Tennessee (indicated by the blue “H” in the graphic below). High pressure systems are what give us this beautiful weather. The graphic below is for the 6 hour period of 1 am Saturday through 7 am Saturday, but the high pressure center hangs around for several days.
