Good afternoon folks! Another beautiful day in east Tennessee with temperatures in the mid 60’s and partly cloudy skies. Many changes are on the way with a cold front moving in tonight from the west. Looking at the RAP Theta-E run you can notice the plume of polar air moving into our region this evening and into tomorrow. With this change in weather, expect highs to be mainly in the mid to upper 30’s. Cold air advection associated with front will be bringing in strong winds for most of the day. This will cause temperatures to feel much colder than the true readings due to the wind chill effects. With gusts of 20+ mph possible, remember to bundle up and stay warm. Do not rule out the possibility of a stray snow shower or two for mainly the higher elevation, as the presence of some moisture is there. Overall for the east Tennessee valley, expect “Old Man Winter” to return with a blistery day. Low’s for Wednesday night should be in the mid to lower 20’s. Expect another post sometime this evening into tomorrow with talks of possibility some wintry weather this weekend.
