Showers On & Off Today & Saturday
Good morning! Isolated to scattered showers remain across East Tennessee (6:45 am) but will begin lifting northward as a warm front slides through Kentucky today. As a result, we will be between fronts giving us a brief period of reprieve from the rainfall. A few showers will hang around through early this afternoon, before cloudy skies dominate through early Saturday. Highs today in the mid 60s.
Looking at modeled guidance, Showers lift north as a warm front before a cold front swoops across the area tomorrow. This will provide showers and even a few embedded thunderstorms before exiting Saturday night. Following, high pressure arrives from the west, bringing a chilly Sunday and slowly moderating temperatures through midweek. Sunshine will stick around through at least Tuesday with highs generally in the low and mid 50s early work week.
Rainfall totals with this system have continued to come down in the recent days. We picked up generally 0.5-0.75" yesterday and into this morning (so far) with another 0.5-1" possible through tomorrow night. Overall, this will be beneficial to the abnormally dry conditions we are seeing across portions of the state.
Other than breezy conditions at times Saturday, it'll be a rain even with no severe threat. Clearing skies will begin into Sunday, leaving cool temps for the day as well. Have a great weekend and don't forget to follow us on Twitter/Facebook (@SecretCityWx) for the latest!
