Good morning to everyone! It's another chilly start to the day but we will warm comfortably into the mid 60's this afternoon. If you are a fan of cold weather, we have a treat for you. This time next week an Arctic air mass will reside over the eastern US dropping temperatures into the 30's and 40's as high's here in east TN. Keep in mind cold air doesn't always mean snow, but there is a chance to see a snowflake or two early to mid next week. Be sure to check back in for the latest development of this next system.
Jumping into tomorrow's outlook, a system to our west will move in. Steady light showers throughout much of the day tomorrow is expected before clearing out tomorrow night. A cold front will clear things out overnight tomorrow, allowing for a chilly close to the work week. Friday high's will be in the mid 40's with temperatures gradually warming as we get into the weekend.
Model guidance is picking up on scattered showers late tonight and early Thursday before the brunt of the rain arrives mid-morning. These showers will carry on throughout much of Thursday before pushing east (ahead of the cold front) by tomorrow night. Backing air from the north will keep things chilly and dry Friday and through the weekend.
Thats all we have for your Wednesday but enjoy the mild conditions Mother Nature is giving us today before rain and chilly temperatures return.
