This morning has been comfortable with temperatures in the 50's and a mix of sunshine and cloud cover. Unfortunately, clouds will increase this afternoon with a chance for showers tomorrow morning.
The current surface map shows that system bringing lots of moisture to the southern states. As the low tracks north and east, it will clip the southeastern corner of Tennessee. Rainfall will be light and quick moving with clearer skies back in the forecast for Friday.
As this system works northeast, showers will stay mainly south of I-40 and east of I-75 tomorrow. This isn't to say those in Oak Ridge, Clinton, LaFollete, and to the north won't see any showers, but the potential for activity is low. As we work into Friday, sunnier skies work in by the afternoon with a beautiful weekend to follow.
Looking more in depth at the cold front Friday, highs will be on the cooler side across the region into the mid to upper 40's. With sunshine likely in the afternoon, that could allow for surface temperatures to feel a bit warmer (upper 40's) than what model guidance is suggesting. Nonetheless, cooler air will be around Friday before we warm into the weekend.
That will wrap it up for today but enjoy the comfortable temperatures before cooler air arrives Friday.
