Happy Cinco de Mayo! It been a pretty wet weekend with roughly an inch to an inch and a half of total rain the past couple of days. Lucky for us, sunny skies return tomorrow for our Monday. We could start the morning with some patchy fog as dew points will be close to the temperature. As long as dew point values are within 2 to 3 degrees of the actually temperature, water vapor condenses to droplets and suspend, creating fog. As for now, you can see (below) clouds have been moving out the past few hours and will continue to overnight.
Moving into Monday and Tuesday, clouds will remain out of the area giving us plentiful amounts of sunshine. Backed with the sun, will be comfortable temperatures in the low 80's.
Mid week, showers will yet again find their way back into the Tennessee valley. Wednesday we will stay mostly dry with a few showers/thunderstorms possible in the later half of the day and overnight. Thursday will contain showers and thunderstorms on and off throughout the day. Something I am keeping an eye on is the severe threat Thursday into Friday. The SPC released the day 5 outlook (below) showing the chance of severe weather. As of now, the conditions are setting up to be favorable for a shot at some severe weather potential in western Tennessee, but not the eastern portion. Obviously, we are a number of days out so data will likely change. The trend so far has this system likely to impact us a bit sooner Thursday, which could land that yellow hatched circle a bit farther east (into our area). I will keep you posted on how this next system evolves. Until then, enjoy a pretty start to the week before the clouds and rain conditions arrive back mid-week.
