Temperatures will again be on the cooler side today before warming back into the mid (& some areas) upper 80s this weekend. Looking further into the future, warmer temperatures will continue to linger for the end of September (according to the CPC). We first will experience a cool, very fall-like, wave sometime around late next week before warming back up (as suggested below). Additionally, precipitation is expected to be at to slightly above the norm for this time the year. September typically is one of our driest months of the year but if this year as a whole says anything about our rainfall, we'll likely be above the average to close out the month.
Working ahead, a low in Central Texas will merge with what's left of Nicholas and dump moderate to heavy rainfall across the Southeast. This includes East Tennessee where daily afternoon showers and storms will be possible this weekend. Into next week, a fairly stout cold front will work from the west, providing moderate showers and storms Monday through Wednesday. Following, much cooler and drier will arrive to close out the work week.
That will close it out for the week. Showers/storms will be possible at times this weekend with temps in the mid to upper 80s. Activity will peak during the afternoon, before dissipating towards nightfall. Showers will be more widespread into the first half of the week next week, before highs in the 70s (and for some potential 60s) arrive Thursday.
