We will end the work week on a chilly note with highs today only topping out in the mid 50s. Shower activity will continue on and off as well, with a low working northeast today. With the added/continued rainfall, I expect the drought map (below) to stay, if not even, improve by this time next week.
Showers will continue on and off today as the low pushes northeast. As we get into Saturday, a few lingering light showers could be present across East Tennessee, but will mainly stay contained to the Smokies through the afternoon/evening. Sunday will bring a better opportunity at sunshine with temperatures rebounding into the low/mid 60s as well. Things will stay seasonable & pleasant into Monday but some changes arrive Tuesday and midweek.
A cold front looks to bring well below average temperatures towards the midweek. A cold front will blast through Wednesday, bringing not only some rainfall, but much cooler air as well. This could even be the first shot at some frozen precipitation for the high elevations of the Smokies. Early indications suggest highs could be as cold as the 40s to low 50s, but time will tell as better details come together. For now, anticipate a shot at cooler air next week, along with another chance for showers.
That will wrap it up for today, if you don't follow us on Twitter/Facebook you can do so @SecretCityWx....We will begin drying out the latter half of Saturday with sunshine arriving Sunday. Have a great weekend!
