High pressure will continue working in today, leading to mostly sunny skies and highs in the lower 80s. This will be fairly short lived though, as showers and isolated storms build back in tomorrow evening and early Saturday morning. Keep in mind though, showers will be sparse over the next 7 days. Looking below, forecasted rainfall amounts will be in the 0.25-0.5" range, with the bulk of this coming Friday evening to Saturday morning. The next chance won't arrive until mid week next week.
Cloud cover and any linger showers will clear up by Saturday evening, with high pressure nosing in late weekend and early next week. As it does so, very warm temperatures (potentially the warmest of the year so far) will arrive. Highs will range from the low to mid 90s for most by Tuesday. With mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies in place above, very high UV indices will be across East Tennessee. Keep the sunscreen and water close by as we get into next week.
That will wrap it up for today....take advantage of the beautiful conditions today and the first half of the day tomorrow! Highs for both days will be in the upper 70s to low 80s.
