An update from the NWS: "Storm survey has found EF-3 damage with winds estimated around 145 mph. Storm survey is still ongoing with updates as they come in." As that information comes in, we'll post this evening with more details and share some of the data we recorded last night.
Jumping into today though, cooler air is working in. A cold front (as seen below) is heading east this afternoon. Expect below average temperatures for the first half of the week with warmer temps Thursday and Friday.
There's little activity around the region right now but a chance for scattered showers presents itself tomorrow night. Following this brief shower, a high pressure system will build in providing sunshine and warming temperatures.
A glimpse into the showers tomorrow shows they will be limited and scattered in nature. Not everyone will get wet and this will be quick moving. Following tomorrow night, clearer skies will arrive for Wednesday afternoon and the days to follow.
Check in for a second post this evening with updates on the Chattanooga tornado and to see some of the data & analysis from last night.
