Most are dry this morning, but a few may be seeing a few light showers to sprinkles. This is part of a weak upper level disturbance pushing to our north. This is expected to clear out over the next couple of hours, leavening partly to broken skies this afternoon. Highs remain on the cool side, in the mid 50s.
Moving forward, our next best weather maker is on Thursday. Showers will impact mainly the southern half of the area and into the Smokies. We have lowered shower chances as a result, with the better setup and activity south of the state. Nonetheless, a few showers will still remain possible through Thursday, with some snowfall not out of question in the high elevations of the Smokies Thursday evening/night. This could be the first frozen precipitation of the new cold year, but minimal impacts can be expected as little to no population are in these areas.
Stretching out longer term, temperatures appear to make some recovery. The CPC suggests temperatures to flip back near to even slightly above average for next week. Precipitation however is planned to be below average. We will see the start of that later in the work week, continuing into next week as well.
Hit and miss sunshine will be present today and tomorrow, before a chance for light showers on Thursday. Temperatures will be chilly throughout the period, well below average tomorrow and Thursday. We begin rebounding toward warmer conditions Friday and through the weekend.
