Cloud cover is hanging around this morning but clearing is quickly on the way. Looking at the latest satellite image, Western TN is clear with only a few high clouds across Western Kentucky. Once we clear out, skies will be partly sunny through the afternoon before cloud cover again increases for tonight. Highs today near average in the low to mid 50s.
Moving forward, we continue to eye the chance for heavy rains and strong showers/thunderstorms. It is not too often we have storms during the cold season, but we will have another chance this weekend. A strong low and cold front will swing eastward, providing heavy rainfall and a few strong storms. Rainfall totals could be as high as an inch and a half with locally higher amounts possible. The WPC has highlighted a Marginal Risk for flash flooding Friday morning into Saturday, but this hangs just out of our area to the west. I expect them to include us for the Day 3 outlook tomorrow.
That will do it for today...generally, temperatures will warm over the next couple of days before being followed by a strong cold front. Highs will warm to the mid and upper 60s by Saturday.
