Shower activity today will stay contained to northern TN and the higher elevations (east). Cloud cover will gradually thin out this afternoon, providing partly cloudy skies. A cold front has started to work through now keeping temperatures into the lower 40's, but by 5 o' clock most will be in the upper 30's. It has also been breezy through the morning hours with gusts up to 20 mph at times. Wind chills are in the mid 30's, so stay warm!
To begin the weekend, we will be beautiful. Temperatures will remain below average in the lower 50's but lots of sunshine will make things feel a bit more comfortable. Sunday will be the best day for outdoor activities with high's in the lower 60's, but lets face it, both days will be gorgeous.
With cooler air working through today, a high pressure system will build in behind gradually warming things up this weekend. The latest data suggests Spring could be starting a bit early given the latest patterns we've had and those to come. Speaking of Spring, the first day will be March 19th at 11:50 PM (EDT). This will be the earliest Spring start in 124 years. Working overnight Sunday and into Monday, cloud cover will increase with showers by Monday night. Next week looks to be another soggy one with showers likely Tuesday through Thursday.
