A dense fog advisory is currently in place from Knoxville down to Athens and east for low visibility issues in some areas. As we work into the day, this will expire rather quickly as sunshine will makes its return. We will see high's right on par with averages in the mid to upper 40's.
As you could see on the surface map, our next weather makes sits just to the west. Though things stay dry and partly sunny today, cloud cover will migrate back in this evening and overnight. Wednesday should stay mostly dry before showers eventually work in by the evening and overnight hours. New Year's Eve is where we will find the bulk of activity on and off throughout the day. Guidance continues to suggest the track of this system running northeast but with the center staying west of East Tennessee. This means we'll see more outer shower activity in waves throughout the day and into New Year's. If you do have some outdoor plans for the "ball drop" or even into New Year's Day, be sure to bring the wet gear as shower activity will be possible through lunch time Friday.
With Christmas and the winter weather we dealt with going on, we didn't get the chance to touch on drought from this past week. As you can see below, conditions remain the same from mid-December. If the track of our next weather maker stays in line with model guidance, we could see some changes (for the good) to this map later in the week. Some areas could see several inches of rain into Western TN.
That will wrap it up for today but if you'd like to be apart of this year's Secret City Weather Almanac you can find information at SecretCityWeather.com/Sponsors.
