Cloud cover continues to persist here at the noon time hour, but clearing is on the way. Just to our west, sunshine is gleaming for northwestern Tennessee. With the overcast skies and passing of a cold front, temperatures are much cooler this afternoon. As seen below, temperatures were anywhere from 10-20 degrees warmer this time yesterday. The good news is warmer air returns this weekend.
In fact, if we compare the average temperature to what is expected this weekend, we'll be 5-10 degrees above the norm. Sunday afternoon high's will range from the mid 60's to the low 70's with plenty of sunshine overhead.
We finally transition back to a much quieter and less active pattern. Conditions stay dry and warm Saturday through Monday before showers edge back in Tuesday. Our next weather maker doesn't look super impressive, but most will likely see scattered showers Tuesday and midweek. Temperatures will fair above average Saturday through Wednesday.
That will do it for today. The next several days will tick upward in temps with plenty of sunshine to go around. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
