Another beautiful fall day across the Tennessee Valley! Temperatures are even cooler today, only in the upper 60s to lower 70s across southern middle Tennessee into north Alabama. Skies are completely clear, with not a cloud in the sky on our skycams.
Skies stay clear through the evening and overnight, with temperatures again dropping fairly quickly after sunset with the dry air in place. We're look to once again be headed for morning lows in the mid to upper 40s by daybreak. If you're headed to the district fair this evening, weather looks great, but you may want a light jacket. Clear skies are expected with temps in the mid 60s by 6:00, dropping into the mid 50s by 10:00.
Temperatures look to stay on the cool side for the next five to seven days with highs in the low to mid 70s and morning lows from the mid 40s to the mid 50s. We continue with the sunny and breezy weather through Friday, but clouds increase over the weekend as the remnants of Hurricane Ian pass off to our east. It's looking more like the rain stays east of our area, and we have dropped weekend shower chances down to 10% (and off the 7-day forecast graphic).
Hurricane Ian made landfall this afternoon not far from Ft. Meyers as an upper-end Category 4 hurricane with sustained winds of 150 mph. Ian will track back out over the water into the far western Atlantic before landfalling again as a mid to strong tropical storm (it will encounter wind shear as it moves north) along the South Carolina coast. It looks like Ian's impactful weather will stay off to our east and move away from our area.
