Good afternoon! Looking at radar, showers continue to fill in. Activity will generally stay confined to light to moderate intensity, but a few thunderstorms can't be ruled out. These are a welcomed sight given the dry conditions the past few weeks, where up to a half an inch will be possible. Locations in the northeast and bordering KY will have the highest amounts, while those south and west (southern valley and plateau) will fair the least.
In terms of temperatures, cloud cover and rain cooled air has really impacted things. Most central valley locations sit in the mid 60s, while those who have been sunnier thus far have warmed into the 70s and even 80s. This quite a bit of disparity, all dependent on the cloud coverage.
For what's to come...hit and miss showers continue through early tonight, where cloud cover will slowly break up by early Thursday morning. This will allow for high pressure to fill in behind a cold front, and sunny skies to arrive Thursday afternoon through Saturday. Temperatures will also fare cooler for all tomorrow (upper 70s to around 80), before we warm through the weekend. Another bout of shower and storm chances return late weekend into early next week with our next disturbance.
I hope you have the umbrellas handy today. Showers will be hit a miss through the remainder of the day, with sunshine to return in full force tomorrow afternoon through Saturday. Have a good one, enjoy the pleasant weather to come, and don't forget to follow us on Twitter & Facebook @SecretCityWx
