Though we aren't impacted much by Tropical weather, the hurricane season has officially come to a close (as of December 1st). NOAA used all the names below and more with 21 total named storms this season. There were in total 4 major hurricanes (category 3 or higher with 111 mph winds).
Jumping back into something a bit more relative, check out the temperature changes over the past 24 hours. Some locations as high as 25 degrees warmer (Eastern KY & north). Even across portions of TN we are seeing 10-20 degrees of a swing. This is due to the strong southerly flow we will continue to see through the day today. As a result, it could be breezy at times with gusts up to 20mph. Temperatures will also be warm, with highs to be in the mid and upper 60s. Some locations could even reach 70 today and tomorrow.
With high pressure to the south, things remain dry the next couple of days. A disturbance could bring isolated showers Saturday and Sunday before a better opportunity arrives overnight Sunday and into early Monday. These should diminish by Monday morning, allowing for gradually clearing skies and a dip into cooler (but average) air.
Take advantage of the "heat" as highs are 15-20 degrees above average for this time of the year. Sunshine will also make things feel a bit warmer, so get out and about if you can.
