A weak front will progress eastward through the day today bringing some light and isolated showers through the early afternoon timeframe. Cloud cover will continue through this time period as well before gradually clearing out this evening and overnight. High pressure will be in place for Wednesday with cooler temperatures (mid 40's).
Better rain chances arrive later in the work week as a system is expected to arrive from the south. As you can see below, much of the southern half of the state will see rainfall into Thursday and early Friday. Uncertainty still lies in how much rainfall the area will see so for now, we are in the 50-60% ballpark. Changes are likely in the days ahead. For Saturday, things clear back out with high's near average.
Early indications suggested a cold flip toward the end of this month but current data keeps the brunt of cold air west and to our north. With that said, we will see some cooler pass through toward the end of January and into early February. The balance between above average temperatures (a few days this week and ahead) and below average temperatures (also mixed in this week and ahead) keep temperatures (overall) average now through mid-February (according to the CPC). We continue to keep a close eye on the patterns going on worldwide and for any changes we could see across the southeast.
Satellite shows some breaks of sunshine and clearing for parts of Middle Tennessee. We'll likely see some better shots of sunshine toward the mid-afternoon hours, so take advantage if you can. We'll cool down a few degrees tomorrow but stay on track with norms this time of year.
