I hope everyone is having a good Friday thus far. If we first look at the 24-hour temperature change across the US, check out these differences to our west! Anywhere from a 30+ degree change from this time yesterday for North Texas and Oklahoma. A very strong cold front will make its way through tonight and into Saturday for our area.
As for right now, the high pressure system will keep things above average and dry this afternoon before the cold front to our west moves in. With it, expect light scattered showers for Saturday and much cooler temperatures. Once this move out Saturday afternoon, another high pressure system to the west will dry things out for Sunday and early next week.
Plans to cheer on your local high school tonight? The good news is we will stay dry for the game with temperatures starting in the mid 70's and ending in the mid to upper 60's by games end. Cloud cover will begin increasing late this afternoon and evening, providing mostly cloudy skies overnight.
Working into tomorrow, we will see some scattered showers begin moving in late tonight and early Saturday. These will move out rather quickly (by early afternoon) before we start clearing out for Sunday. If you plan to attend UTK vs. Miss. State, plan to dress warm and bring a rain jacket as temperatures will be in the upper 50's for kickoff and we could see some light scattered rain showers.
The later half of your weekend looks gorgeous, so take advantage and enjoy some outdoor activities. Thats all we have today, but have a good Friday and great weekend!
