Cloud cover will be on the increase today, as a cold front approaches and passes through the area. As it does so, scattered showers and storms will develop this afternoon and evening. Not everyone will see rainfall with this, so amounts will be fairly low as a whole. With that said, a few of these storms could be strong to marginally severe, with damaging wind gusts the main threat.
By tomorrow, showers will have worked out and clearing skies will be in to end the work week. Highs will be much cooler, with most topping out in the upper 70s. A gradual warm up can be expected through the weekend, before showers and storms return Sunday and into early next week. Overall, rainfall amounts will be minimal, less than half an inch for most through Monday.
With abnormally dry conditions still present across Tennessee, we will need to see how things play out ahead. Minimal rainfall amounts and warm afternoon temperatures will likely allow for these spots to become more widespread over the coming days and weeks. For now, keep the umbrella handy incase showers impact you today, with drier and cooler conditions planned for Friday.
