Good morning! As you can see on satellite, a quick moving system is impact East Tennessee this morning. A majority of the area is seeing cloudy skies with those in northeastern TN under a few showers to snow showers. As this moves off east through the morning, sunshine will begin its return just in time for the afternoon. High's to be a little cooler today with the passage of a cold front in the mid 40's.
As is depicted on satellite, cloud cover is associated with the fast moving front and low. In behind this, we will find high pressure shifting through the day today and for a good chunk of the day Wednesday. By Thursday, our next system arrives. This one is currently bringing heavy snowfall to the central United States.
Besides a few isolated showers/sprinkles through the mid-morning hours, things should stay dry. This is especially true this afternoon as the transition from a frontal passage to rising heights (higher pressure) moves in. Closing the work week out Thursday and Friday, the next weather maker arrives bringing rain, mix precipitation, and snow for some locations. Valley locations (as the norm) can anticipate most precipitation in the form of rain with the Smokies seeing some snowfall. Rain isn't expected to be a washout with mainly isolated to scattered showers the later half of Thursday and into the first half of the day Friday. Those of you with weekend plans should expect to escape with sunshine and high's in the mid 40's (average for this time of the year).
