I hope all had a wonderful weekend! Taking a look outside, everything seems peaceful so far today with sunny skies, light traffic, and temperatures in the low 40's. As we swing into the new work week, we continue to stay on the warm side. Highs this afternoon are expected to top out in the mid to upper 70's, and some locations around 80.
Longer term (7-10 days) the Climate Prediction Center suggests temperatures to maintain their trend: at to above average. Even precipitation will stay on course with at to below average expected. This will be something to watch for in the weeks ahead and how this could play a part in drought conditions for parts of Spring.
Aside from the mild temperatures and sunny skies, we do have changes coming later in the week. A round of showers is expected late Wednesday and through Thursday. Generally, amounts will be around half an inch. The bulk of heavy rainfall will stay to the south and west (middle and western TN). Following this round of rain, conditions look to clear and dry back out.
For now, enjoy another warm and sunny day. We continue this trend into Tuesday as well before cloud cover and shower chances return late Wednesday and into the day Thursday.
