I hope everyone is staying dry today as the latest radar scan shows the showers continuing to stream in from our south and west. These will continue this afternoon leaving high's in the mid to upper 60's.
Showers and storms (as we will see tomorrow morning to mid afternoon) will continue all ahead of a cold front to our west. This system is expected to move out just in time for Trick or Treating (around the 5-6 o' clock hour). With the rain moving out, expect much cooler temperatures to move in. Our high temperature tomorrow will actually arrive near lunch (near 70 degrees) and begin decreasing after that. For the afternoon commute tomorrow, expect temperatures in the 50's and decreasing through the night to a low around freezing (32).
Ahead of the cold front, we are anticipating the chance for some strong to severe weather. The latest SPC (Severe prediction center) convectional outlook shows a marginal risk for much of east TN with NE TN under a slight risk tomorrow. Confidence is very low for an tornado formation, but can't be ruled out entirely. Instead, expect the worst of these storms to be damaging winds between the 9 AM to 1PM range.
As expected from model guidance, showers and some storms will roll through this afternoon and overnight before the darker shades of color (reds, yellows, oranges) arrive tomorrow mid-morning. Be weather aware for your Thursday as we will have gusty winds throughout the day (around 25 mph), some thunderstorms, and heavy rains at times, as well. The good news is this system will move out just in time for some free candy. Dress accordingly though as we will have decreasing temperatures into the night.
Your full video forecast can be found below. Stay dry today and tomorrow, as it'll continue to be a wet one. Also be weather aware and be sure to check in with us tomorrow morning for the latest on the stronger storms. Have a great day!
