Morning rain to fade into partly cloudy Saturday afternoon

Morning rain to fade into partly cloudy Saturday afternoon

Posted:

The morning rain and rumbles will push east through the morning hours leaving a mix of sun and clouds and brisk winds through the afternoon hours. Temperatures should remain above average in the low-mid 50s for most. We will see just a few clouds around Saturday night with temperatures falling back close to the freezing mark, but sunshine and temperatures in the 50s return for Sunday.

This will be the better day this weekend for outdoor activities. Another fast moving system will slide just to our south on Monday, but it will increase the clouds again and bring some scattered late day rain showers to the region. These spotty showers linger into Tuesday morning as colder air filters in, so for some, the rain could mix with a few snowflakes before tapering off. Yet another fast moving "clipper" system drops in form the northwest on Wednesday, which will reinforce the cold air and IF there is enough moisture, we could see some scattered light snow showers/flurries for some.

There more likely areas would be across the Plateau, portions of S.E. Kentucky and across the Smokies. We will have to wait and see just how much moisture this feature can produce. The end of the week, Thursday through Saturday, looks drier and cool with a bit more sunshine. 

Today: Rain and a few rumbles likely early (100% coverage), then partly cloudy and breezy through the afternoon. High: 56°.

Tonight: Partly cloudy and cooler. Low: 33°.

Sunday: Mostly sunny. High: 52°.
