The latest in the long series of cold fronts has brought chilly air back to the Tennessee Valley. After a good soaking rain last night, clouds are hanging tough, and we have only made it into the upper 30s and lower 40s across the area so far this afternoon, without too much longer today for additional warming. Clouds will start to decrease across the area overnight, and with that, temperatures are going to drop. We expect overnight lows for most folks in the area to drop into the mid/upper 20s. However, some of the locations that run naturally colder across the area may get closer to the lower 20s by daybreak. Temperatures will be noticeably "warmer" for Tuesday, but still chilly, with afternoon highs in the lower 50s.
Clouds increase going into Tuesday night, and showers return back to the area during the late night and predawn hours of Wednesday. Those showers stick around through midday before decreasing and moving out by afternoon. This could be another widespread half to three-quarters of an inch of rain for everyone before it comes to an end later Wednesday.
That system moves by and we get a break in the rain for Thursday and Friday, with temperatures not moving a lot in part to the zonal flow across the area. Then, the next weather system approaches toward the weekend with another chance of rain, especially on Saturday.
