Good afternoon! It has been rather uneventful for many (as expected) with only a few showers working through parts of Chattanooga this morning. As we work ahead, cooler air will arrive Friday morning. As you can see below, a low to the west of the Great Lakes will move east today providing cooler air for our region.
If we look into model guidance, we will start the morning into the upper 30's and lower 40's before cooler air keeps temperatures around that mark for the day. If you notice into eastern TN and eastern KY, temperatures will stay around freezing as that cold front works through. With cooler temperatures in place for the higher elevations, these areas could see some snowfall through the day.
Though any moisture here in the valley looks bleak, a stray shower or some mixing is possible tomorrow morning. By the afternoon we'll clear out to be partly cloudy with temperatures in the mid 40's. As for the Smokies, snowfall is more likely with temperatures around freezing much of the day. Keep in mind along with cooler temperatures will be breezy conditions as well. Winds between 5 and 15 mph could make temperatures feel in the 30's at times.
Be sure to bundle up tomorrow as cooler air moves back in. High's will be 10 degrees below average for this time of the year but warmer air moves back in for the weekend.
