GOES-16 East paints a pretty picture this morning with limited cloud cover encompassing the southeast. Unfortunately, we'll see some changes to this picture Friday and early into the weekend but things stay warm and dry today. In fact, high's will return to near 80 degrees under mostly sunny skies.
The forecast ahead remains relatively the same. Cloud cover will build in for the second half of Friday bringing with it the chance for isolated to scattered showers. This looks to continue into Saturday as well where a weak cold air mass follows. This will cool things down Saturday afternoon to highs in the low to mid 70's before warming temperatures return Sunday and early next week. Overall, Saturday will be our best day for shower activity as this line works its way through. With how dry and warm we have been the past several days, a fresh bed of rainfall will be nice in helping to prevent drought conditions to return across the state.
Longer term, we will likely see rain activity pick back up across East Tennessee as the pattern looks to change late October/early November. As we highlighted yesterday, much cooler air is expected to return later this month, bringing high's back down below average. For now, do your best to enjoy the warm and somewhat sticky air we have through the end of the week and into next week.
