Radar shows a broken line of showers and storms working across Southern Tennessee and working southeast. Additional shower and storm activity is possible this afternoon as a front hangs just to the north. This will also lock in moist air for the days ahead, again leading to shower and storm potential. Heavy rains in the south could lead to localized flooding early this afternoon.
Contrary to last weeks drought map, we have actually picked up a few more abnormally dry spots. These are likely the cause of hit or miss showers combined with very warm temperatures. This is a normal pattern, especially August through September (where we are driest during the year).
With a cold front just to the north, showers and storms will continue to be a nuisance in the days ahead. The front will lift north, settling across the Ohio Valley through the weekend and into early next week. Afternoon showers and storms will be possible through that time period.
As we have seen the past couple of days, showers and storms will pester us through the weekend and into the new work week next week. Drier but warmer conditions will be on tap for the mid to later part of next week. Have a good weekend and don't forget to check out or daily video forecast below.
