Good afternoon! Sunny skies are out with temperatures currently in the low to mid 40's. Satellite shows the cloud cover associated with our next system just to our south and west. Increasing cloud cover will be seen late this afternoon and overnight.
As mentioned above, a low to the south will bring rainfall to the area late tonight and early into Thursday. Guidance suggests a nice bed of showers through the first half of the day before cloudy skies take over the later half. By Friday, clearing will begin to take place for the afternoon with sunshine returning Saturday. High's will also sit at to slightly above average, so things should be pleasant Friday afternoon and into the weekend.
With showers likely in the morning hours Thursday, use caution on your way to work and school. Most areas across East Tennessee should see upwards of a few tenths of an inch with enhanced rainfall, up to half an inch, for the windward side of the Plateau. Drier air will work in by the evening hours tomorrow as high pressure begins settling in Friday.
Enjoy the conditions today before a bit of rain and messy conditions arrive for the AM commute Thursday. Those with weekend plans should enjoy Saturday and much of Sunday before rain chances return Sunday night and Monday.
