After steady showers last night and into this morning, we have cleared up nicely. Just over 0.8" is what we picked up since midnight. Luckily, lots of sunshine has returned with temperatures staying pretty fair as well.
Looking ahead, a weak front will slide through overnight providing a very slim opportunity for showers. Most of the region will stay dry but we left a small chance for mainly the northern Tennessee valley. Tuesday and Wednesday will be sunny and comfortable as a high pressure system will stick around.
We are looking at Thursday for the target day of shower activity to return. The latest data suggests moderate & steady showers with upwards of an inch to 1.5" through the day and into Friday.
As we work into the later half of April, what does early to mid-May entail? The latest from the CPC suggests average temperatures. Keep in mind the average high for early to mid May is in the mid to upper 70's. That means over the next few weeks we will gradually warm up as we inch further into Spring and closer to Summer.
Go out and enjoy the sunshine early this week before rainfall arrives the later half of the work week and into the weekend.
