Good morning! Things are fairly quiet around East Tennessee, but off to our west showers and a few storms are churning. As you can see below, a stout cold front is making its way east, bringing much cooler air for your Tuesday. Highs tomorrow for most to top out in the low and mid 40s with a few upper 40s along southern East Tennessee.
The SPC has highlighted a Marginal risk for portions of the Plateau today. The main threat will be damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph. With that said, it will be a breezy day today. Gusts up to 30 mph will be possible at times through the day, so secure any loose outdoor objects. Rain & a few embedded storms (possible) will arrive mid morning 9-11am and work eastward with time. We should return to partly cloudy skies tonight, clearing for the day tomorrow.
Breaking down guidance, once the line passes today, high pressure briefly settles in to our north. This will set up a dry and cool Tuesday before additional rain chances arrive mid and late week. These next rounds will be fairly hit or miss with only isolated to scattered showers expected Wednesday and again Friday. Highs will warm Wednesday and onward, with near 70 possible on Friday.
That will do it for today. Be sure to bring in any outdoor loose object, things will be breezy the greater part of the day.
