Take a look over McCloud Mountain this afternoon! Skies are filled with a few fair weather cumulus and high cirrus clouds, with temperatures mild for this time of the year. As we work ahead, this will be the trend (besides Wednesday).
Another cold front will work out of our northwest and into the region. Given the lack of moisture associated with this system, isolated showers are possible at best. Even more so, the best opportunity will be along the higher terrain of the Smokies during the afternoon hours. Once this quickly passes, temperatures and conditions will be fair through the remainder of the work week and into the weekend.
Lastly, we wanted to update you on the improved drought conditions across the state. Many locations including NE TN experienced abnormal to moderate drought the past several weeks, but Ida did a good job of cleaning that up. Given the heavy rainfall we received, I don't think a several day span of mostly dry weather will impact the area too much.
If you haven't already, be sure to go out and enjoy this beautiful day. Sunny skies will dominate a good portion of this whole week and with mild afternoon highs to accompany. Have a great Labor Day!
