A gorgeous but chilly day across East Tennessee, with mostly sunny skies and temperatures currently running in the low to mid 50s. We will warm over the next few hours to highs in the upper 50s to low 60s, before 70s return Wednesday.
Looking ahead, a washing out frontal boundary will sag to our north. This will increase cloud cover tomorrow afternoon and bring the opportunity for very isolated showers to sprinkles overnight and into Thursday morning. Sunshine will then build back in as temperatures sky rocket through the weekend.
Looking at those temperatures, Friday and Saturday afternoon will average highs 10-15 degrees above average. The average high for mid April is 73 degrees and most will find themselves in the low to mid 80s. A few southern locations or those in deeper valleys could even end up closer to the upper 80s. Either way, it is going to be a warm end to the work week and into the weekend.
The weather pattern looks pretty quiet over the next several days, but this looks to pick back up next week. For now, enjoy the increasing temperatures and mostly sunny skies (with the exception Thursday). Have a good one and don't forget to follow us on Twitter/Facebook if you don't already!
