Soggy Sunday, expect additional rain overnight

Posted:

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - It was definitely a soggy Sunday with widespread rain.

Thankfully temperatures on the Plateau and across southeast Kentucky quickly warmed above 32° after sunrise limiting the opportunity for widespread freezing rain.

We will see additional periods of rain overnight which could be locally heavy at time, but it will be ALL liquid as temperatures remain or slowly climb through the 40s. Keep the rain gear handy heading out to work and school on Monday as the pipeline of moisture continues to flow from the Gulf of Mexico up into East Tennessee.

We should see a decrease in coverage of rain through the afternoon and evening, but we won't completely dry out until the second half of the day on Tuesday as colder air funnels in. We will then see a break in the wet weather Wednesday through Friday with highs remaining slightly below average for this time of year.

As of now, it appears as though we could see a return to more wet weather just in time for the weekend, but we will watch to see how this system develops through the week.

 

 

Tonight: Additional periods of rain will be likely and some downpours could be locally heavy (90% coverage). Low: 46°.

Monday: Plenty of clouds with additional scattered rain showers (80% coverage). High: 52°.

Tuesday: Scattered rain showers possible early with colder air moving in through the afternoon. (60% coverage). High: 52°.
