A good Thursday morning to you! A few areas of patchy fog are present, otherwise the majority of us are sitting clear. As we work through the day, a bulk of mid to high level clouds will work in. Don't anticipate these to stick around too long though as sunshine returns to end the work week.
With relatively little to discuss here as home, how does the rest of the U.S. fare? If you recall, Hurricane Eta made landfall in Central America earlier this week as a category 4 storm. This system is expected to hook eastward and push back into the Atlantic tomorrow. Depending on how it responds and how much of its structure is intact, this will give us an insight on the potential for strengthening. As of now, Eta is expected to stay at Tropical Storm strength and work through Cuba and eventually parts of Florida by early next week. Tune back in for updates in regards to strength and path with Eta.
With things staying dry and warm here in East Tennessee, how warm with temperatures get? A look at guidance early next week shows high's as high as 76 here in the valley. The typical average for early November hangs in the mid 60's so we will be well above that this weekend and early next week. Some counties could see as high as 78 by next Tuesday before cloud cover and rain chances finally work back in mid-week.
For now, enjoy another pleasant day. Satellite is picking up on cloud cover already hanging across West Tennessee, but sunshine returns for Friday and through the weekend. More details can be found on our daily video below.
