Good afternoon! There has been little change in the latest drought map, but this will quickly change as rain is on its way. With an inch or more of rain expected throughout east TN, we will be back to normal conditions in the very near future. For this afternoon, we will stay mild with temperatures in the lower 60's and cloud cover increasing.
Speaking of that rain, model guidance suggests scattered showers will arrive late overnight tonight before transitioning to more steady showers Friday. By the end of the day tomorrow, they will become more scattered. Getting into the day Saturday, reinforcing moisture from the south will provide additional rainfall before the rain moves out the later half of the day. Clear skies and cooler temperatures return Sunday afternoon with warmer temps to start the new work week next week.
Umbrellas will be needed tomorrow so don't forget them on your way out the door! Have a good rest of your Thursday.
