Good morning to everyone. We started the morning mostly cloudy with isolated rain in parts of Roane county. This has now traveled east into Knox and Sevier counties with the additional chance of showers as we get into the early afternoon hours. High's today will be cooler, thanks to the cold front and cloud cover, but this won't last long. To end your work week, we will be back in those upper 80's to lower 90's under mostly sunny skies.
The current surface map shows the cold front across Tennessee. That will continue to slide through the area bringing with it those isolated shower chances and cooler temperatures. Unfortunately, this will move out quick as a strong high pressure system builds in tomorrow. This will clear the skies allowing for plentiful sunshine and warm temperatures.
The latest model guidance suggests we could see some additional shower chances as we get into the early afternoon. We are definitely in need of some rain as we have gone almost a month without even a trace of precipitation in Knox county. These showers will quickly move out this evening, allowing for clearing skies overnight, and most sunny skies on your Friday.
I hope everyone sees a few sprinkles today as mostly sunny skies and hot temperatures will return tomorrow and through the first half of the week next week.
