We start the new work week soaked with showers continuing to work through this morning. Fortunately, this is the last wave before a brief stent of drier air finds us this afternoon and into Tuesday. As a cold front pushes through this morning, temperatures will drop through the day. High temperatures are actually occurring now with temps this afternoon to be around 50 degrees.
As rainfall continues to evacuate eastward, flooding continues to be a worry. Water run-off will continue through the day contributing to any flooding that is still going on, especially for bordering counties with Kentucky. In the days ahead, an unsettled pattern continues. A system developing off the panhandle of Texas will lift north and east, bringing rainfall Tuesday night into Wednesday.
Looking at a play-by-play of what you could see, showers are expected to arrive while many are asleep Tuesday night and move out by the lunch time hours Wednesday. Following, much better weather is in store. Sunny skies and average temperatures will find us the later half of the week, something much needed region-wide given the plethora of rain Tennessee and Kentucky has received.
Do your best to stay dry this morning....showers will continue to push east with drier air in store by this afternoon. We deal with another system midweek before sunny and comfortable temperatures find us late in the work week and into the weekend.
