Another picture perfect fall afternoon? Don't mind if I do! Temperatures in the low 70s are comfortable but the breezy winds from the north are making it feel a bit chilly out there. With a gorgeous blue sky overhead, I'm giving this weather an A+!
It's going to be another chilly evening across the Tennessee Valley. If you're heading out to
the Middle Tennessee District Fair in Lawrenceburg, maybe a football game or out to dinner, grab something warm because it's going to be another chilly evening. Temperatures will drop into the 50s as the sun goes down and the northerly breeze will make it feel chilly.
We're continuing to keep an eye on what is now Tropical Storm Ian. As far as the effects of the storm here in the Tennessee Valley, it's looking less and less impactful. Saturday is trending completely dry with partly cloudy skies. For Sunday, I think skies will be mostly cloudy and we could see a shower or two across the area. The remnants of the storm look to stay to our east.
The center of Tropical Storm Ian is now off the eastern Florida coast. The storm is expected to strengthen slightly, potentially into a Category 1 hurricane once again, before it makes landfall somewhere along the Carolina Coast. There is a Hurricane Warning in effect for the entire South Carolina & Georgia Atlantic coast, with Tropical Storm Warnings as far inland as Charlotte, North Carolina. Second landfall is expected early Friday as a Category 1 Hurricane.
Again, we will not see much in terms of effects from the storm, other than clouds and a few rain showers. Otherwise, our 7 day forecast here in the Tennessee Valley looks fantastic. Temperatures in the 70s warm gradually throughout next week, and we could reach the low 80s by Thursday. Rain chances are virtually non-existent aside from the weekend, and even at that they are very low. Here's to another nice week of fall weather!
