FORECAST

Spotty showers this morning but most will dry out this afternoon. Clouds will be stubborn with highs in the low 50s. 

Today Sprinkles early, dry for the afternoon (20%). High: 51°

Most of us are dry but a few sprinkles are possible. We'll continue to dry out the rest of the day but clouds linger. 

Tonight: Clouds decrease. Low: 36° 

Clouds decrease overnight, with temperatures dropping into the 30s. 

This Week:

It will be drier as we start the new work week with a mix of sun and clouds Monday and highs remaining seasonable in the lower 50s and morning lows in the 30s.

Tuesday and Wednesday also look dry with a mix of sun and clouds along with near average temperatures in the low-mid 30s in the morning and low-mid 50s during the afternoon.

Don't get used to this brief dry spell though, because another storm system heads our way to wrap up the work week. Scattered rain showers will develop across the region Thursday and linger into Friday. We will keep a close eye on this system as strong winds could once again be a concern for some of the higher elevations of the Smokies Friday.

As this system move out, colder air will wrap back into our area and some of the remaining moisture could mix with or change to some light snow late Friday for the higher elevation region. We're still days away, but we will keep an eye on the progress and potential strength of this system, but these could be our next Weather AWARE days as the rain could impact some of your outdoor plans.
