Check out the view over Oak Ridge this morning from the Stansfield's webcam! High clouds will continue to work through off and on today as our next system pushes in from the west. High's will be a bit warmer today's well in the mid 40's with 50's expected tomorrow.
Similar to our most recent system, a low will work just to our north keeping East Tennessee in the warm sector. Rain can be expected Saturday evening through Sunday morning with a few stray showers in the afternoon. As this low moves east, we could see some wrap-around moisture in the form of light snow showers and flurries. As of now, not expecting any accumulations in the higher elevations (with the exception for the highest elevations of the Smokies). We will cool back off early next week.
Tennessee as a state has had some improvement with abnormally dry conditions, but we will still have some work to do. I anticipate for this to continue improving as a weather maker moves through this weekend dumping between half an inch and an inch for much of the state. CPC patterns indicate above average precipitation now through February 10th, so state drought improvement looks likely.
Temperatures will continue to climb into Saturday with high's in the 50's and cloud cover on the increase too. Showers will dominate the second half of the weekend before much cooler air follows (30's) Monday and early next week. Check out more below:
