Happy Thursday! A pretty cool feature picked up on satellite this morning are the outer bands of hurricane Dorian. Parts of Morristown and the smokies saw some cloud cover this morning associated with the hurricane. Luckily, no impacts (rains, winds, etc.) are associated, just some clouds that will move out later this afternoon.
Are you feeling any cooler today? Probably not many of you may say, but the latest 24 hour temperature map definitely depicts that change. We are seeing up to an 8 degree temperature change from this time yesterday. Unfortunately, this won't last long as much warmer and more sticky conditions will be felt later this weekend.
As for the latest model guidance, not much expected over the next couple of days. As a high pressure system builds in, it will keep us "high and dry". Another interesting feature picked up by this model is the chance of rain for the western portion of North Carolina. This is the model picking up the chance for a few scattered showers from hurricane Dorian. As I am not expecting any showers in east TN, we could see some in the smokies and far western portions of North Carolina late today and overnight.
That wraps up your forecast for today, I hope everyone has a great rest of their day and enjoy these "cooler" temperatures while they stick around.
