Radar has moderate rainfall beginning to work in across East Tennessee, so use caution on your way to work and school. These showers will continue into the late morning hours before becoming more scattered to isolated. This all associated with a low just to our south that will work eastward rather quickly by this evening and overnight. In behind, high pressure will fill its place providing sunnier skies through Saturday and Sunday.
Model guidance paints the picture...rainfall is already working into the region this morning and will likely continue on and off through this afternoon. The positive with this will be the relative quickness of the system. Things will begin clearing out overnight tonight as sunnier skies prevail into the weekend.
Counter to what I mentioned yesterday, conditions have worsened in parts of Perry, Decatur, and Henderson counties. Hopefully with the addition of today's rainfall, these moderately dry conditions will clear back to the closer norm. It will definitely be something we'll pay close attention to in the weeks ahead. Here at home, things stay right at normal and with general rainfall amounts between half an inch and an inch through the day today. Things turn dry again for much of next week so we'll see how things play out. I will mention, climatologically, December is one of our wettest months during the year. The pattern ahead keeps temps around average and sunnier skies above (Tuesday thru the work week).
For those heading to the Vols game tomorrow or will be out and about, stay warm. Things will be chilly through the weekend with high's in the 40's (below average for this time of the year). On the flip side, things stay dry with improving sky cover so enjoy that before a few isolated showers become possible on Monday.
