Good morning! Showers again will be fairly contained this afternoon with only isolated chances and mainly in the higher elevations. Unfortunately, temperatures look to continue warming with highs ranging from the upper 80s to lower 90s. The humidity will only make things feel even warmer this afternoon. Cloud cover, storms, and a front will reduce highs to the lower 80s this weekend and early next week.
Given the nature of this slow moving front, the WPC has placed East Tennessee (and the entire state) under a Marginal Risk for flash flooding both Sunday and Monday. There is still some uncertainty in strength, which could bump up the rain forecast late weekend and early next week. We will keep a close eye, but use caution if you are in flood prone areas or near water bodies.
A break down of the activity can be seen below. This model tends to be our "wetter" solution. Activity will likely be a bit more limited this afternoon than what is suggested, but widespread activity will follow for the weekend and into Monday. Overall rain totals will be between 1 and 3 inches with higher amounts likely in "training storm" situations.
Keep close to a cellphone or computer....we will provide updates throughout the weekend with the latest in regards to these storms. Fortunately, drier conditions look to present themselves towards the middle of next week. Stay safe and don't forget to provide us reports via email or social media!
