There won't be much sunshine across the region today as clouds will continue to thicken and lower as an area of low pressure moves northeastward out of the Gulf of Mexico and heads towards the Tennessee/North Carolina border. Most should squeak out a dry day today, but rain will quickly move in after sunset from southwest to northeast across the area. The rainfall could be locally heavy for some overnight into early Sunday and could lead to so isolated flooding along the Foothills into the Smokies.
This system should continue to move northeastward rather quickly on Sunday bringing an end the steady rainfall by the afternoon hours. The clouds and damp feel will linger though throughout the afternoon hours though, so keep a coat handy. As more cold air settles in on Monday, there will be a chance for a few random light snow showers or flurries scattered about, but no problems are anticipated.
We will wrap up 2013 and bring in 2014 on a quiet and chilly note, but we will keep an eye on Thursday as there "could" be an opportunity for a rain/snow mix for some across the area.
