Thanksgiving week; it's giving...rainy.
How does it feel to not be in the 40s in the afternoon? I for one am loving it. We're be warmer than we have been all throughout this week which is great news. Temperatures overnight will still be quite chilly, dropping into the lower 30s tonight across the Tennessee Valley.
Unfortunately with warmer temps we do have rain chances to discuss. I know we keep saying
it, but we still need the rain. Unfortunately it will come on Thanksgiving. The good news is that the bulk of the rain will move through in the late evening and overnight hours. Sorry, Black Friday shoppers! Saturday holds another decent chance for rain, and Tuesday's chance is the most sparse of them all.
Here's what you can expect for the days leading up to Thanksgiving. Dry for the rest of today and tonight. A few rain showers are possible Tuesday morning, mainly in northwest Alabama and northeast Mississippi. I think most of southern middle Tennessee remains dry.
These images are from the GFS model for Thursday and Friday. Most of the rain stays to our west until we get to 6 p.m. Thursday evening. Heavier rain moves in overnight and continues through Friday morning. We are not expecting thunderstorms with this system. Rainfall will taper off Friday afternoon and we'll get a break until Saturday.
It won't be too much of a break, as rain moves in early Saturday morning. Again, not talking storms for us here in the Tennessee Valley. There may be some thunderstorms toward south Alabama with Saturday's system. Rainfall looks to clear the area by Saturday evening.
Yes, your 7 day forecast is looking a bit soggy, but at least afternoon temps will be much closet to average for this time of year. I'm ready for Wednesday!
