We are starting off the morning again chilly with temperatures through the heart of East Tennessee in the upper 20's to low 30's. The good news is temps will again peak in the mid 40's with high's as warm as 50 this weekend.
Continuing on the trend of good news, rain is expected to arrive this evening. How is this good news? Well....Most rain will fall while many are asleep, leaving sunshine to fill back in for Friday afternoon. Showers will be likely early tomorrow morning, which could make the morning commute a bit messy and wet, but we will quickly dry back out. For the weekend, things look mostly peaceful. We will have partly cloudy skies both Saturday and Sunday and high's in the mid to upper 40's.
Working into next week, we continue to trend cold. The cold air will begin to pivot eastward ushering in possibly the coldest temperatures of the year. Earlier data indicated this could arrive as early as Monday/Tuesday but this has since been pushed out a few more days. Nonetheless, next week will likely start mild before ending cold. Our eyes continue to be on any snow potential, but for now that looks very low.
I hope you enjoy your Thursday. Cloud cover will continue increasing through the day but showers shouldn't arrive until sunset or after. A little reminder as well that showers could linger into Friday morning, so be sure to have your umbrellas handy just in case.
