Another chilly start this morning with temperatures into the 40's but warmer air is on the way. With another active week in store, southern flow will help draw in warm Gulf temperatures as well as that moisture much of this week.
If we take a look at the latest surface map, you can see the next weather maker lies just to the west. Showers are expected to work in overnight tonight and continue until early tomorrow afternoon. We'll begin drying back out but cloudy skies will stick around for the second half of Tuesday. High's will begin warming as well, in the mid 60's tomorrow, with mid 70's for Wednesday and Thursday. Keep in mind the average temperature in Knoxville is 62 this time of the year and we could be pushing 80 as we work into Thursday.
For your week ahead, very similar to last week. A mix of scattered showers and cloud cover through the next several days. The best day for any outdoor activity will be tomorrow afternoon and Wednesday before scattered showers work back in for Thursday. Something we'll be eying is the chance for heavier showers and storms for Friday. A strong cold front will work through the Midwest providing the chance for heavy showers and thunderstorms Friday and early Saturday.
This active pattern looks to continue for sometime so prepare for more gloomy and wet days. We'll continue to eye any severe weather chances for Friday, but until then, stay dry!
