Good morning! Most are under cloudy skies as a cold front is making its way eastward. Fortunately, clearing is soon on the way, with sunny skies already across Nashville and portions of the Plateau. This will continue eastward through the morning, where sunshine returns for all this afternoon. Highs will be a bit cooler, nearing 70 degrees.
Looking at the 24 hour temperature change map, you can clearly see the cold front making its way through the Ohio Valley and down through the Lower Mississippi Valley. A change of 10+ degrees is seen, which will be most noticed overnight tonight with lows in the 40s.
With the last of the showers (mainly far east) exiting, clear skies will return under passing high pressure. This won't last too long though, as another disturbance pushes in Saturday night and into the day Sunday. Showers will be scattered overall during this time, so some may not see rain at all. Dry air then returns by Monday with high pressure filling back in. Showers will be ahead of another advancing cold front, where MUCH cooler air arrives into early and mid week.
Check out early guidance attempts to predict Tuesday night/Wednesday morning temperatures. Assuming this pans out, and confidence continues to grow, we could be in for the coldest morning since late Spring. Lows for elevated locations could see the low 20s, while the valley lands in the upper 20s to low 30s. Bottomline, it looks to be a chilly one towards mid week, with highs in the 50s and lows well below average to match.
Skies will continue to clear late this morning, allowing for a beautiful and mild afternoon. Will highlight breezy western winds, where gusts up to 20 mph are possible. Have a great day, and tune back in tomorrow for the latest East Tennessee weather forecast!
