Warm Monday, Showers Tuesday
The warm weather will continue for a few more days before we get a slight cooldown just in time for midweek and Veterans Day. National Radar shows the rain in Florida associated with Tropical Storm Eta, and a lot of winter weather back in the midwest and the Rockies.
Zooming down to Florida, notice the circulation center west of the Florida Keys. This is the center of Tropical Storm Eta as it continues to meander in the Gulf of Mexico. It brought tropical storm force winds to the Florida Keys overnight.
Eta continues to move SW but will then turn sharply north and may affect the Big Bend area of Florida this weekend. We will keep you udpated on the latest track this week.
Back closer to home...we are tracking a cold front that will be moving into the area late Tuesday and into Wednesday. Showers will be possible throughout the day on Tuesday and Tuesday night. You can see Futurecast picking up these scattered showers nicely below...
The rain becomes heavier in spots late Tuesday evening as the front gets closer. We may have a few rumbles of thunder as well, but no severe weather is expected at this time.
By mid-morning for your Veterans Day...cooler air has pushed into the Tennessee Valley. A chance of showers continues during the day Wednesday but overall it will be a mostly cloudy and cool day.
Rainfall totals should average around a half inch, but some locations may locally pick up higher amounts, as you see on the rain totals below.
Temperatures remain mild for the next 5 days with highs generally in the 70s and lows cooling to the 40s and 50s.
Have a great Monday!
