Mostly quiet this week. Warming temps. Rain returns late week and weekend.
After damaging storms to start the weekend, we are thankful for calmer weather this week. It's a chilly early Monday morning across the Tennessee Valley. Temperatures for many of us are below freezing early this morning with clear skies as high pressure has settled in across the Southeast.
Skies stay mostly sunny as we head into our Monday, and this will allow temperatures to recover a bit compared to Sunday. We look to top out in the upper 50s to near 60 by afternoon. Clear and quiet conditions continue into the evening and overnight, with temperatures dropping into the mid to upper 40s after sunset and then into the upper 30s and lower 40s by sunrise on Tuesday morning.
High pressure begins shifting east of the area Tuesday, and we start to get a southerly flow as the next storm system ejects out into the Plains. That system will track off to our north, but the southerly wind will promote a warming trend, with temperatures Tuesday climbing into the lower 60s, and we be in the upper 60s and maybe lower 70s for much of the rest of the week. By Thursday into Friday and the weekend, the front gradually works into the Tennessee Valley. That will work to increase the chance of showers with time, but the good news is that we don't see any signs of a severe weather threat with this front in our area.
