Good morning! With current temperatures in the upper 60's things have started cool and peaceful so far. As we transition into the day, temperatures are expected to stay cool but scattered rainfall with work in. Check out tomorrow's high's across east Tennessee! With the cold front working through a couple days ago, cloud cover, and rain cooled air, expect to top out 6 to 8 degrees below average.
A system to the south and west will have an attached warm sector just to our south. This will allow for shower and storm activity to begin firing off this afternoon. As it works north on Friday, widespread activity is more than likely the second half of the day. Keep in mind severe chances are limited but are not out of the woods. Isolated flash flooding could also be an issue for Friday, so look out if you are in flood prone areas.
Scattered showers will develop this afternoon and eventually work out by the overnight hours. A Marginal risk is in place for the lower half of the state so be mindful of strong storms at times today. Moving into Friday, we will more than likely begin the morning with a few light scattered showers before transitioning to more widespread and heavy (at times) activity in the afternoon. Again, a Marginal risk will be in place with the chance for strong to severe storms at times during the second half of the day. Though flooding isn't qualified as a severe parameter, this, damaging winds, small hail, and isolated spin-up can't be entirely ruled out.
Stay dry and check in for updates this afternoon. The southern half of TN (Knoxville and south) will likely see the heaviest showers and storms today, with similar activity more widespread Friday. Stay safe!
