Good afternoon! Conditions have been pleasant through the first half of the day, but satellite shows cloud cover continuing to work in from the west. This is apart of a low pressure system along Eastern Texas that will continue working north and east in the days ahead. For the remainder of the day, cloud cover will continue increasing with mostly cloudy skies expected overnight.
With high pressure located off the coast of the Carolinas, return flow will keep much of the eastern half of the US on the wet & active side. Moisture from the Gulf will continue to pump in through the second half of the week leading to rainfall totals as high as 4 inches across Western Tennessee over the next 5 days. Here at home, things look a bit better with rainfall totals around an inch. Again though, we are running on the dry side so any extra rainfall won't hurt.
Showers will work in by tomorrow afternoon, so be sure to have the umbrellas handy. We'll see better rain and storm coverage Thursday and parts of Friday before a bit of sunshine edges back in for the weekend. For more details, check out our daily video forecast below:
