As a low pushes out of the Central Plains, cloud cover will continue increasing this afternoon and night. This will lead to showers the latter half of Thursday and cooler air for your Friday. For today, another warm one with highs in the lower 80s.
Thursday will be our last "seasonably warm" day for a bit, as a cold front shifts through Friday. Looking at highs tomorrow, East Tennessee will range from the low to mid 80s. Just to the west, where shower coverage will be the best early, temperatures are much cooler in the low to mid 70s. By Friday, a cold front will have moved through leaving highs in the low 70s.
Future radar does hint at some light isolated showers for the morning commute tomorrow but the majority of activity will reside to our north in Kentucky. As the low and associated cold front work east, showers and an isolated storm or two is possible in the evening and overnight hours. The majority of rain will be out by Friday morning, but a few lingering showers along the Smokies will be possible. Clearing will follow for Friday afternoon with sunshine returning Saturday and parts of Sunday.
That will do it for today, much of the prime daytime hours tomorrow will be cloudy before showers arrive towards the evening. Have a good one and stay cool (temps remains above average one more day).
