Areas of showers will develop during the night as our next weather maker moves in. Some rain may mix with snow near the TN border but we’re not expecting any issues because temperatures will stay above freezing. Lows will be in the mid to upper 30s.
Cloudy, damp, and dreary weather is on tap for Friday. There will be numerous showers scattered about the area along with a few thunderstorms. Upper 40s may be the best we can do and the wind will be from the ESE between 10 and 15 mph.
Some rain is possible Friday night and Saturday morning but it now looks like there will be a lull in the action overall. Additional showers and storms will develop by late Saturday afternoon and they will continue through Saturday night. The latest data suggest that the greatest severe storm threat (hail, wind, & isolated tornadoes) will set up along and south of I-20 during this time. It’s still possible that the severe threat area could navigate a bit farther north in time so we’ll continue to monitor the situation closely.
Rain may linger around here Sunday morning but brighter skies will return as the day goes on. Breezy WNW winds are expected to develop in the wake of this system and they will help to dry things out. Plan on a good deal of sunshine next week but below average high and low temperatures will continue.
