Good afternoon. It's Tuesday, only Tuesday. This gloomy weather is really throwing me off,
but I shouldn't complain because it is my favorite. We've got a boundary to our north that will bring us a few more showers today, and widespread showers and thunderstorms overnight. We are not looking at a severe threat my any means, we may just deal with some heavy rainfall and isolated flooding issues. We could gain another inch or two of rain by the end of Wednesday, and there's even more coming!
A few showers will pass through the Tennessee Valley Thursday, but a slightly better chance for some showers will come along with a cold front very early Friday morning. Rain moves in after midnight. We aren't talking widespread rain, there's just not that much moisture to work with here. Once that moisture moves on through, the rest of the day will actually be dry! It won't last too long, however. Rain showers move in Saturday and Sunday as well.
The best chance we have for rain is Wednesday morning. A lot of this rain will fall while most of you are sleeping, but you'll still want your rain gear throughout the entire day. Before Friday's FROPA, temps will be in the 60s/70s. After FROPA, highs will be in the mid 50s.
Fred touched on next Tuesday in yesterday's blog, and not much has changed about what could potentially happen in terms of thunderstorms. We're keeping an eye on next Tuesday/Wednesday for the potential for a few strong storms somewhere in the southeastern US. It may be in the Tennessee Valley, or it may be to the north/south/east/west, you get my drift. It's too early for any specifics other than model guidance indicating a strong thunderstorm setup. We will keep you updated in the days to come!
